Headline

Nurses urged to adopt guidance on older diabetes patients

Comment

This is an excellent paper and I personally shall refer to it in relation to treating frail older people. It is so important to realise that one size does not fit all and that the aims of treatment differ at different points in the life course. We need to learn to balance risks and benefits and keep the patient at the centre of all we do. As our population ages it is more important that we combine the art and the science of nursing and medicine. Clinical guidelines need to take account of the needs and aspirations of older people especially those who are frail so that they experience the best possible quality of life. Here's the link to the paper https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/dme.13644
