Public Health Mini-Guides: Diabetes provides up-to-date, evidence-based information in a convenient pocket-sized format. Diabetes is a worldwide public health concern and is being referred to as the ‘global epidemic of diabetes’, the ‘silent epidemic’ and the ‘diabetes timebomb’.
The increasing incidence of diabetes, the heavy burden of morbidity and mortality associated with diabetes, and its spiralling healthcare costs, underpin the importance of a public health approach to the prevention and management of diabetes. This Mini-Guide explores in more detail how public health practice might address some of these issues.
Covers all aspects of a public health approach to diabetes
Individual and population-level interventions
Case study examples help relate practice to theory
‘Thinking points’ encourage reflection and are a teaching aid
Each chapter ends with summary points, websites and further reading lists to help direct readers.
