Diabetes in Control Opens Up Its Clinical Presentation Library for Use by the Medical Community
DEERFIELD, Ill., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Diabetes in Control (http://www.diabetesincontrol.com), an e-newsletter dedicated to keeping clinicians current with the rapid changes in diabetes care, expands its quest to provide them with the best tools for their practice. With the release of the company’s growing archive of medical presentation highlights for the medical community, available for download (http://www.diabetesincontrol.com/articles/homerun-slides) at no cost, Diabetes in Control continues to innovate in sharing new and advanced methods to improve outcomes and standards of care. This archive will continue to grow as the company adds its presentation of the week from its weekly Clinical Mastery Series. Complimentary professional subscriptions are available here: http://www.diabetesincontrol.com/subscribe.
“By opening our growing slide presentation archives to the medical community, we hope to accelerate the adoption of best practices and deepen the knowledge base of medical practitioners,” says Stephen Freed, R. Ph, Publisher of Diabetes in Control. “Time is against us all in the fight against diabetes. Our archive will save clinicians and researchers time and effort as they create important presentations for their colleagues and patients.”
“We began assembling the presentation slide library one year ago in response to an extensive survey of medical practitioners conducted by Diabetes in Control,” says David Joffe, Editor in Chief of Diabetes in Control. “Clinical slide presentations were among the most-requested new features. Medical professionals are incredibly pressed for time, and this is one way we can help. Also, we’re committed not only to education but also retention. And people tend to absorb multi-sensory information (such as graphical slides) better than simple text.”
The online publication combines Diabetes in Control’s two notable diabetes clinical newsletters with articles and writings from leading medical practitioners and industry experts; news that focuses on innovative methods to improving outcomes and standards of care; just-released information on drugs, devices, treatments and services; and free CE and CME opportunities.
“Our publication is becoming increasingly important considering the decline in the availability of diabetes educators, as the epidemic grows,” says Andrew Young, president of Diabetes in Control. “Also, diabetes practitioners are so pressed with their hands-on work, they have little time to devote to ongoing education. Diabetes in Control is easily accessible, free, reliable and ever-current, providing a welcome solution through Internet-supported medical education.”
