Family Practice is an international journal aimed at practitioners, teachers and researchers in the fields of family medicine, general practice and primary care in both developed and developing countries.
The fourteenth of November is World Diabetes Day, an observance day led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and recognized by the World Health Organization and the United Nations. The day aims to raise awareness of the condition globally. The theme of the 2016 campaign is “Eyes on diabetes” and focuses around screening, diagnosis, and treatment to reduce the complications of type 2 diabetes.
In support of World Diabetes Day, we have collated a selection of content including journal articles and blog posts that explore a range of sub-topics such as diabetes in old age, improving diabetes care, and health service barriers in the management of diabetes.
