Public Health Policy Decisions and Diabetes

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter demonstrates the breadth and “power” of selected diabetes policies. It discusses ones that are relatively simple which could be directly implemented within a clinic without great difficulty. The chapter talks about policies of such potential impact that they could ultimately influence all people with diabetes in a large metropolitan area, in a country such as the United States, or even throughout the world. Policies of such potential impact are, not surprisingly, both challenging and controversial.

Keywords: diabetes policies; public health policy; diabetes management; clinic
