BioMedCentral article: Comparison of #diabetes management in five countries – via CHAIN & King’s Fund

I thought others might be interested in seeing this email which contains three bits of information I wanted to highlight.

(1) the article itself

(2) that the King’s Fund publish a current awareness service

“This free service provides in-depth information on a wide range of fast-moving policy issues and is posted each week.”

(3) that the CHAIN network is a useful resource for tapping into the knowledge of healthcare folk / academics / others etc, and is free.
