However in the UK only 1 in 6 children succeed in controlling their diabetes successfully, despite support from parents and professionals. This enlightening new book is a comprehensive account of diabetes and the complex medical and psychosocial factors that influence metabolic control in children and young people. It presents a series of evidence-based and accessible educational, psychological and social approaches to increase specialist knowledge, promote positive attitudes, enhance patient care and create appropriate healthcare environments. The book offers an easy-to-comprehend approach to clinical care and includes practical tools for assessment for all healthcare professionals throughout the text. Featuring contributions from a number of international experts in the field, this thorough and wide-ranging guide is informative reading for all students, academics and professionals with an interest in paediatric psychology and health.
