Diabetes in Practice (DiP) is a reference tool for medical practitioners working with diabetic patients in the hospital setting. Written by Dr David Levy MD FRCP, Consultant Physician, Barts Health NHS Trust (Whipps Cross University Hospital) and Hon Senior Lecturer, Queen Mary University of London, this unique aide expands current guidelines and practice for management of diabetes in the emergency department and the wards by incorporating a wealth of additional practical information relating to emergency scenarios, the management of patients on the ward and discharge planning.
The app focuses on addressing real-world issues robustly, effectively and safely and has been structured to make it quick and easy to use in any situation. It includes detailed practical guidance on how to approach common clinical problems, such as real-life targets for glucose control in hospitalised patients, patients on steroid treatment and enteral feeding, and starting or converting patients to insulin treatment. There is a detailed description of insulin preparations currently available in the UK and practical aspects of non-insulin treatments. Much of the content is not available in standard sources and has been designed with the busy and time-pressured trainee in mind, faced with diabetes-related problems in the emergency department and general wards of the hospital.
