Psychosocial issues have long been acknowledged to have a crucial role in the successful treatment of people with diabetes. An understanding of these issues can enable health care professionals to assist their patients effectively. The second edition of the acclaimed title Psychology in Diabetes Care gives background information and practical guidelines needed by healthcare professionals to address the cognitive, emotional and behavioural issues surrounding diabetes management.
The book bridges the gap between psychological research on self-care and management of diabetes, and the delivery of care and services provided by the diabetes care team.
