Abstract

The practical guidance to insulin management is a simple tool for health care providers, particularly primary care physicians (PCPs). Developed by experts in diabetes care at an international meeting, it aims to help physicians make key decisions to optimize insulin management and decrease long-term morbidity risk. With a growing role for PCPs in type 2 diabetes, the practical guidance focuses on confident, appropriate and timely insulin initiation. Using the acronym 'TIME' (Targets, Insulin, Managing weight, Encouragement and support) the practical guidance aims, in a visually appealing format, to help physicians address the challenges of insulin management with their patients, from diagnosis through insulin initiation to follow-up. 2010 Primary Care Diabetes Europe.
