You can get a free Diabetes-Cardiovascular Disease tool kit to help your patients reduce their risk of death by calling 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383). It comes on CD-ROM or hard copy. This is a joint project of the American Diabetes Association, the American College of Cardiology, and the Preventive Cardiovascular Nurse Association. It includes reproducible patient education materials that are related to diabetes and heart disease. This was advertised in the latest issue of Nursing 2006 and thought some of you who are thinking ahead might be interested in obtaining this free patient teaching information. Never know when you or a fellow student might need it for a patient teaching project!
