Editor’s Note: Whole Teams, Crushing Problems, and More Great Neuropathies Slides

We often talk of the “whole team” concept when treating our diabetes patients, and that usually includes a prescriber, a nurse, a diabetes educator and a pharmacist, but this week’s Case Discussion offers up the problems a 68-year-old Greek-speaking woman with type 2 diabetes of 20 years’ disease duration was having and why we often need to add another member to the team. Check out who the missing member is.

This week, Dr. Aaron Vinik reviews methods of clinical observation and the use of qualitative and quantitative sensory testing for neuropathy in our Homerun Slides.

Our Disaster Averted focuses in on the dangers of crushing extended release medications and when you can and can’t. We have included a link to the latest DNC (Do Not Crush) list from the Institute For Safe Medication Practices.
