Diabetes is currently at epidemic proportions in the UK with approximately 5% of the population suffering the disorder. Consequently, it is a disease frequently encountered in primary care and constitutes a significant component of the GMS contract. This resource, composed of 10 assessment questions, is designed to test your knowledge on how to manage the condition, focusing on the main problems encountered in primary care such as type 2 diabetes. This resource covers the main areas of treating patients according principally to NICE guidance, including oral hypoglycaemic agents and insulin.
