The Diabetes Education Study Group (DESG) is a section of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). Its aim is to help the medical profession to realize the importance of patient education as a therapeutic measure and to analyze the needs and difficulties experienced by medical teams when they have to teach diabetics. The large and varied membership participation in the different medical fields concerned with diabetic education and care from all European areas, North, South, East, and West, provides the unique opportunity for multidimensional studies and approaches to the many facets involved in the successful education of diabetic individuals. This is well illustrated in the article Difficulties encountered with patient education in European diabetic centers (Chapter 13), which outlines the results of 6 workshops conducted by the DESG.
