The 10-minute consultation: type 2 diabetes mellitus second edition

Advisory board: R Gadsby DW Haslam K Khunti M Kirby M Mead
This is an excellent book, very user-friendly, which provides a good safety net to ensure the 10-minute consultation is efficient yet comprehensive.
GP, Judging Panel BMA Book Awards 2011
Highly Commended Runner-up, Primary Care Category
I think this is a brilliant concept, and beautifully written... There is a perception that chronic disease management is automatically a 'heart-sink' so sensible and practical advice like this is crucial.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus accounts for approximately 90% of the population of patients with diabetes mellitus. Considering the clinical consequences of leaving diabetes mellitus untreated in terms of patient health and long-term healthcare costs, the need for GPs to correctly identify and treat type 2 diabetes mellitus is great. Some patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus are unable to control their disease with diet and exercise alone and thus require drug therapy.

The 10-minute consultation: type 2 diabetes mellitus provides a holistic approach to the assessment and management of type 2 diabetes mellitus, outlining the principles for good history taking and stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment within the standard '10-minute' framework.

The clinician's manual can be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.
