Abstract

This report describes recent developments in bio-medical, behavioural and social understandings of diabetes and how it can be prevented and treated. Its most important objectives relate to the further development of pharmacy-based health care as a cost-effective part of the overall pattern of support available to people with diabetes. This should facilitate a combination of better medicines use and positive health related behaviour changes. This report also seeks to contribute to wider public and professional debate about the nature of diabetes and how individuals and communities should respond to the threat it represents. It seeks to promote a balanced awareness of the fact that although there is no such thing as a 'mild' case of diabetes – everyone who is diagnosed with any variant of the disorder is at raised risk of disability or death – appropriate management can significantly reduce the harm that it would otherwise cause
