Abstract

Type 2 diabetes is classified globally as a pandemic affecting all populations, to such an extent, that nearly every human being will have some kind of reference to it. This paper contributes to a widening knowledge base, in a very important aspect of diabetes, related to patient education and its concomitant impact on the ability by a person with diabetes to self-manage their condition. It has been explored, investigated and recognised that high standard, individually tailored, psychosocially orientated patient education will have beneficial, clinical and cost-effective results on disease and quality of life (QoL) outcomes.1 Patient preferences as to type and mode of delivery of education have not been explored to any great depth in diabetes and indeed in other conditions. There is also a paucity of information regarding which aspects of self-management or self-care patients prefer, or do not prefer, to carry out in order to maintain optimal biophysical and psychosocial outcomes.
