Very good source of what to look for in new meds used in diabetes . Information for community nurse as well as nurses in the hospital as we're part of the patient journey. Raises the flag on patient morbidity and mortality resulting from poor knowledge of diabetes by staff, lack of consistent policies guidelines.
