(My working environment is that of a diabetes nurse within a medical ward/clinic at a public hospital in Australia). The question must show analysis and synthesis of ideas raised and relate them to current practice. The paper must flow and have a dialogue and show evidence of wide reading. There must be an introduction and conclusion. All reference materials used must be post year 2000. Diabetes and Diabetes Care journals must be included as sources of references. Other references should be medical journals. Current research findings are the best source of reference. Diabetes type 1 and 2 should be discussed with the focus more on the hyperglycaemia rather than type.
