Life with Diabetes: A Series of Teaching Outlines
Life with Diabetes has given thousands of healthcare professionals the tools they need to facilitate behavior change and become effective teachers and counselors. This series of teaching outlines was developed and tested by the Michigan Diabetes Research and Training Center, affiliated with the Department of Medical Education of the University of Michigan Medical School. Previous editions of this teaching curriculum have been used by thousands of educators in diabetes clinics to help their patients understand and live with the many challenges of diabetes. This newly revised edition contains up-to-date information in a structured, patient-centered curriculum to help diabetes professionals create customized lessons and deliver high-quality diabetes self-management education. Each chapter offers a detailed and complete guide to teaching a different diabetes topic, but still allows each educator to speak to patients in his or her own voice at an appropriate pace. Additional features include illustrations and visual teaching aids, patient handouts, participant assessments, education records, and an extensive support material section that helps educators customize and manage their programs. Key patient education topics covered include: Diabetes nutrition and meal planning Blood glucose management Physical activity Oral medications and insulin Behavior change and problem solving Long-term diabetes complications This new edition is presented in a convenient 3-ring binder format, giving educators more flexibility to customize the curriculum to meet their patients' needs. The comprehensive curriculum has also been updated to meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. Life with Diabetes is the book that diabetes educators and clinicians need to provide complete care to their diabetes patients.

The Patient Equation: The Data-Driven Future of Precision Medicine and the Business of Health Care
How the data revolution is transforming biotech and healthcare--and why you can't afford to let it pass you by We are living through a time when the digitization of health and medicine is becoming a reality, with new abilities to improve outcomes for patients as well as the efficiency and success of the organizations that serve them. In The Patient Equation, Glen de Vries presents the history and current state of life sciences and healthcare as well as crucial insights and strategies to help scientists, physicians, executives, and patients survive and thrive in the current disruptive, tech-driven landscape. The biggest challenge facing biotech, pharma, and medical device companies today is how to integrate new knowledge, new data, and new technologies to get the right treatments to the right patients at precisely the right times. This book shows you how to meet that challenge and embrace the data revolution. Drawing on the fascinating stories of businesses and individuals that are already making inroads--from a fertility-tracking bracelet changing the game for couples looking to get pregnant, to an entrepreneur reinventing the treatment of diabetes, to Medidata's own work bringing clinical trials into the 21st century--de Vries shares the breakthroughs, approaches, and practical business techniques that allow companies to stay ahead of the curve and to deliver solutions faster, cheaper, and more successfully--while still upholding the principles of traditional therapeutic medicine. How one rare disease is leading the way for new approaches to understanding precision medicine What it means to build robust, effective disease management platforms Why value-based reimbursement is changing the business of life sciences How the right alignment of incentives will improve outcomes at every stage of the patient journey Whether you're a scientist, physician, or executive, you can't afford to let the data revolution pass you by: understand the landscape with this must-read roadmap for success--and see how you can change the future of healthcare for the better.

Dear Life: A Doctor's Story of Love and Loss
'What a remarkable book this is; tender, funny, brave, heartfelt, radiant with love and life, and with the love of life. It brought me often to laughter and - several times - to tears' Robert Macfarlane From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Your Life in My Hands comes this vibrant, tender and deeply personal memoir that finds light and love in the darkest of places. As a specialist in palliative medicine, Dr Rachel Clarke chooses to inhabit a place many people would find too tragic to contemplate. Every day she tries to bring care and comfort to those reaching the end of their lives and to help make dying more bearable. Rachel's training was put to the test in 2017 when her beloved GP father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She learned that nothing - even the best palliative care - can sugar-coat the pain of losing someone you love. And yet, she argues, in a hospice there is more of what matters in life - more love, more strength, more kindness, more joy, more tenderness, more grace, more compassion - than you could ever imagine. For if there is a difference between people who know they are dying and the rest of us, it is simply this: that the terminally ill know their time is running out, while we live as though we have all the time in the world. Dear Life is a book about the vital importance of human connection, by the doctor we would all want by our sides at a time of crisis. It is a love letter - to a father, to a profession, to life itself.

The Patient Will See You Now: The Future of Medicine Is in Your Hands
A trip to the doctor is almost a guarantee of misery. You'll make an appointment months in advance. You'll probably wait for several hours until you hear the doctor will see you now ,but only for fifteen minutes! Then you'll wait even longer for lab tests, the results of which you'll likely never see, unless they indicate further (and more invasive) tests, most of which will probably prove unnecessary (much like physicals themselves). And your bill will be astronomical.In The Patient Will See You Now , Eric Topol, one of the nation's top physicians, shows why medicine does not have to be that way. Instead, you could use your smartphone to get rapid test results from one drop of blood, monitor your vital signs both day and night, and use an artificially intelligent algorithm to receive a diagnosis without having to see a doctor, all at a small fraction of the cost imposed by our modern healthcare system. The change is powered by what Topol calls medicine's Gutenberg moment. Much as the printing press took learning out of the hands of a priestly class, the mobile internet is doing the same for medicine, giving us unprecedented control over our healthcare. With smartphones in hand, we are no longer beholden to an impersonal and paternalistic system in which doctor knows best. Medicine has been digitized, Topol argues now it will be democratized. Computers will replace physicians for many diagnostic tasks, citizen science will give rise to citizen medicine, and enormous data sets will give us new means to attack conditions that have long been incurable. Massive, open, online medicine, where diagnostics are done by Facebook-like comparisons of medical profiles, will enable real-time, real-world research on massive populations. There's no doubt the path forward will be complicated: the medical establishment will resist these changes, and digitized medicine inevitably raises serious issues surrounding privacy. Nevertheless, the result,better, cheaper, and more human health care,will be worth it.Provocative and engrossing, The Patient Will See You Now is essential reading for anyone who thinks they deserve better health care. That is, for all of us.

Unhealthy Politics: The Battle over Evidence-Based Medicine
How partisanship, polarization, and medical authority stand in the way of evidence-based medicine The U.S. medical system is touted as the most advanced in the world, yet many common treatments are not based on sound science. Unhealthy Politics sheds new light on why the government's response to this troubling situation has been so inadequate, and why efforts to improve the evidence base of U.S. medicine continue to cause so much political controversy. This critically important book paints a portrait of a medical industry with vast influence over which procedures and treatments get adopted, and a public burdened by the rising costs of health care yet fearful of going against doctor's orders. Now with a new preface by the authors, Unhealthy Politics offers vital insights into the limits of science, expertise, and professionalism in American politics.
