Discusses the standards and characteristics of the perfect clinic to care for diabetics, particularly focusing on the makeup of the team, which should include physicians, a dietician, a nurse, a foot therapist, and some sort of psychological and social- economic support. Formulated in the context of the 1989 Saint Vincent Declaration by the World Health Organization and the International Diabetes Foundation, urging European countries to guarantee basic education and health-care right to diabetics. Among the topics are the role of nurses on the team, clinical biochemistry, hypoglycemia, and starting new care and education centers. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
