Clinical practice guidelines could be more primary care friendly, says Nisa Maruthur, MD, MHS

Understandably, clinical guidelines can’t always be immediately translated to the frontline, said Nisa Maruthur, MD, MHS, speaking with Patient CareĀ® about the new American Diabetes Association/European Association for the Study of Diabetes (ADA/EASD) consensus report on the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Maruthur, a primary care physician focused on T2D clinical care and research, understands the challenges of both time and resources that primary care clinicians face on a daily basis. In the video below, she emphasizes that it is the duty of clinical guideline developers to guide new recommendations for implementing evidence-based interventions. She is a member of the ADA/EASD consensus report writing committee and explains that this is exactly what she and her co-authors did.
