ABSTRACT
Type-2 diabetes (T2D) needs to be prevented and treated effectively to
reduce its burden and consequences. White papers, such as evidence-based
clinical practice guidelines (CPG) and their more portable versions,
clinical practice algorithms and clinical checklists, may improve clinical
decision-making and diabetes outcomes. However, CPG are underused and
poorly validated. Protocols that translate and implement these CPG are
needed. This review presents the global dimension of T2D, details the
importance of white papers in the transculturalization process, compares
relevant international CPG, analyzes cultural variables, and summarizes
translation strategies that can improve care. Specific protocols and
algorithmic tools are provided.
