National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has released the update to Guiding Principles for the Care of People with or at Risk for Diabetes.
This resource provides a set of 10 clinically useful principles highlighting areas of agreement in diabetes care and prevention. APMA has signed on as one of the 20 professional organizations and federal agencies supporting the use of Guiding Principles.
In Guiding Principles, NDEP has not created new guidelines, but rather clarified where there is general agreement across a wide range of existing guidelines. These principles represent a set of sound practices that clinicians can rely on to improve care for their patients with diabetes.
