This CD consists of two main clinical cases and six short topics covering the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and aspects of management of its acute and chronic manifestations. The format, as for previous CDs in this series is interactive, and performance is monitored by the use of scored assessments which occur throughout the cases. The reference section gives further information on topics encountered and is accessed by hot words in the text of the cases, or alternatively directly through its tree structure, according to the students choice. This CD contains a wealth of information on this very common disease, presented in a lively manner relevant to everyday clinical practice.
