Editor’s Note, DCMS #154: Affordable Care Act Slides Series

As we move closer to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, there are still many unanswered questions as to how things will work, challenges from all sides of the political spectrum and healthcare industry, and a lot of misinformation floating around as well. This week, in our Homerun Slides, we take a look at why we need changes in our healthcare system and how ACA addresses this.

Our Diabetes Disaster Averted shows how the misinterpertation of a simple phrase can have dire consequences for our patients, and our Clinical Text brings in two experts to discuss the Psychological Issues in the Treatment of Diabetes. In our Mastery In Minutes video this week, we look back at an interview in which our publisher Steve Freed had a chance to ask Harold Koh, U.S Assistant Secretary for Health (HHS) about screening for prediabetes.
