Pharmacology of Diabetes: Present Practice and Future Perspectives (Diabetes forum series)

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

A rapid development has taken place within a number of pharmacological areas both with respect to insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent diabetes and also within the prevention and treatment of complications of both types of patients.

Handbook of Psychology and Diabetes: A Guide to Psychological Measurement in Diabetes Research and Practice

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

This Handbook fulfils a pressing need within the area of psychological measurement in diabetes research and practice by providing access to material which has either been widely dispersed through the psychological and medical literature or has not previously been published.
Journal articles describing the psychometric development of scales have rarely included the scales themselves but this book includes copies of scales and a wealth of additional information from unpublished theses, reports and recent manuscripts.
You will find information about the reliability, validity, scoring, norms, and use of the measures in previous research presented in one volume.
The Handbook is designed to help researchers and clinicians:
· To select scales suitable for their purposes
· To administer and score the scales correctly
· To interpret the results appropriately.
Dr. Clare Bradley is Reader in Health Psychology and Director of the Diabetes Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Dr. Bradley and her research group have designed, developed and used a wide variety of measures of psychological processes and outcomes. Many of these measures have been designed and developed specifically for people with diabetes. Together with diabetes-specific psychological measures developed by other researchers internationally, these instruments have played an important part in facilitating patient-centred approaches to diabetes research and clinical practice.

From the author: Recent National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative Guidelines for cardiovascular disease recommend that patients with chronic kidney disease be considered at highest risk for development of cardiovascular disease and that cardiac risk factor reduction begin with diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease include both traditional and nontraditional renal-related cardiac risk factors. The ANNA Nephrology Nursing Standards of Practice and Guidelines for Care can provide the foundation for planning care to patients with CKD and not only slow the progression of CKD but reduce exposure to cardiac risk factors. This article, on the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease and the risk factors and complications that contribute to cardiovascular disease, is the first in a series of three articles on the risk factors and complications related to chronic kidney disease and its impact on cardiovascular disease.

Type 1 Diabetes in Adults: Principles and Practice

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Recent research in diabetes has proven Type 1 diabetes is no longer only a juvenile disease. It has been projected adult Type 1 diabetes will increase 40% from 1997-2010, and as our understanding of the pathogenesis of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes grows – it is apparent that some cases previously classified as Type 2 are actually adult onset Type 1 diabetes. This volume is the first to focus exclusively on Type 1 diabetes in adults, seeks to clarify the complexities by explaining latest concepts in the pathophysiology and management of the disease, and to assist clinicians in the optimal utilization of cutting edge technology, therapeutics, and management strategies available to them.
