Joslin Diabetes Center, The American Journal of Managed Care® Collaborate to Publish Clinical Guidelines

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 25 giugno 2018

The American Journal of Managed Care® has published core clinical guidelines from Joslin Diabetes Center, the world-renowned center for research, treatment, and education on a disease that now affects 30.3 million people in the United States and more than 422 million worldwide.
Several pertinent chapters of the Guidelines are published in the current issue of Evidence-Based Diabetes Management™ (EBDM™), a publication of The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®). These chapters address care for adults with diabetes, nutritional considerations for patients with diabetes, diabetes in pregnant women, diabetes in the geriatric population, and pharmacological treatment for adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D); recommendations cover most topics that physicians, pharmacists, diabetes educators, and other care providers will encounter in primary care practice. The online version includes downloadable PDFs of the full issue and individual chapters.“At Joslin Diabetes Center, sharing our knowledge beyond the clinic walls is central to our mission; we are committed to impacting care globally,” said Robert A. Gabbay, MD, PhD, FACP, senior vice president and chief medical officer at Joslin, who serves as editor-in-chief for EBDM™. “As use of our Guidelines has improved the quality of care for patients at Joslin and our affiliates, we saw an opportunity to share that knowledge with others who seek to better engage patients in the art of diabetes self-management,” Dr. Gabbay said. “Publication of the Joslin Clinical Guidelines in partnership with The American Journal of Managed Care® allows us to reach physicians and managed care opinion leaders who seek to achieve the best health outcomes for people living with diabetes.” Joslin’s Clinical Guidelines, which are developed and approved by the Joslin Clinical Oversight Committee, have been in use for years, but they were not in searchable formats. To publish the Guidelines, Clinical Oversight Committee Chair Om P. Ganda, MD, worked closely with the AJMC® editorial staff over a period of many months.
