In recent years, great emphasis has been placed on the role of nonpharmacological self-management in the care of patients with diabetes. Studies have reported that nurses, compared to other healthcare professionals, are more likely to promote preventive healthcare seeking behaviors. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a nurse-led diabetes self-management education on glycosylated hemoglobin. A two-arm parallel-group randomized controlled trial with the blinded outcome assessors was designed. One hundred forty-two adults with type 2 diabetes were randomized to receive either usual diabetes care (control group) or usual care plus a nurse-led diabetes self-management education (int Continue reading >>

The Diabetes Self-management Questionnaire (dsmq): Development And Evaluation Of An Instrument To Assess Diabetes Self-care Activities Associated With Glycaemic Control

The Diabetes Self-Management Questionnaire (DSMQ): development and evaluation of an instrument to assess diabetes self-care activities associated with glycaemic control Schmitt et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.2013 Though several questionnaires on self-care and regimen adherence have been introduced, the evaluations do not always report consistent and substantial correlations with measures of glycaemic control. Small ability to explain variance in HbA1c constitutes a significant limitation of an instruments use for scientific purposes as well as clinical practice. In order to assess self-care activities which can predict glycaemic control, the Diabetes Self-Management Questionnaire (DSMQ) was designed. A 16 item questionnaire to assess self-care activities associated with glycaemic control was developed, based on theoretical considerations and a process of empirical improvements. Four subscales, Glucose Management (GM), Dietary Control (DC), Physical Activity (PA), and Health-Care Use (HU), as well as a Sum Scale (SS) as a global measure of self-care were derived. To evaluate its psychometric quality, 261 patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes were assessed with the DSMQ and an established analogous scale, the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities Measure (SDSCA). The DSMQs item and scale characteristics as well as factorial and convergent validity were analysed, and its convergence with HbA1c was compared to the SDSCA. The items showed appropriate characteristics (mean item-total-correlation: 0.46 0.12; mean correlation with HbA1c: -0.23 0.09). Overall internal consistency (Cronbachs alpha) was good (0.84), consistencies of the subscales were acceptable (GM: 0.77; DC: 0.77; PA: 0.76; HU: 0.60).

Aim To appraise the Diabetes Self-Management Questionnaire (DSMQ)?s measurement of diabetes self-management as a statistical predictor of glycaemic control relative to the widely used SDSCA. Methods 248 patients with type 1 diabetes and 182 patients with type 2 diabetes were cross-sectionally assessed using the two self-report measures of diabetes self-management DSMQ and SDSCA; the scales were used as competing predictors of HbA1c. We developed a structural equation model of self-management as measured by the DSMQ and analysed the amount of variation explained in HbA1c; an analogue model was developed for the SDSCA. Results The structural equation models of self-management and glycaemic control showed very good fit to the data. The DSMQ?s measurement of self-management showed associations with HbA1c of ?0.53 for type 1 and ?0.46 for type 2 diabetes (both P < 0.001), explaining 21% and 28% of variation in glycaemic control, respectively. The SDSCA?s measurement showed associations with HbA1c of 0.14 (P = 0.030) for type 1 and 0.31 (P = 0.003) for type 2 diabetes, explaining 2% and 10% of glycaemic variation. Predictive power for glycaemic control was significantly higher for the DSMQ (P < 0.001). Conclusions This study supports the DSMQ as the preferred tool when analysing self-reported behavioural problems related to reduced glycaemic control. The scale may be useful for clinical assessments of patients with suboptimal diabetes outcomes or research on factors aff Continue reading >>

A Randomized Controlled Study To Evaluate The Effect Of Pharmacist-led Educational Intervention On Glycemic Control, Self-care Activities And Disease Knowledge Among Type 2 Diabetes Patients: A Consort Compliant Study Protocol

A Randomized Controlled Study To Evaluate The Effect Of Pharmacist-led Educational Intervention On Glycemic Control, Self-care Activities And Disease Knowledge Among Type 2 Diabetes Patients: A Consort Compliant Study Protocol

Globally, diabetes has become a serious clinical and public health problem. According to World Health Organization (WHO), the diabetes number increased from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. [1] Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, stroke, heart attack, blindness, and lower limb amputations, and when not properly managed, it will lead to higher health care cost, morbidity, and mortality, thereby creating greater financial burdens. [2,3] With rapidly rising prevalence of diabetes, especially in the developing countries, it is projected to be the 7th leading cause of mortality in 2030. [1,3] Worldwide approximately 415 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM), and the number is expected to increase to 642 million by 2040, [4] making it one of the leading noncommunicable health problem worldwide. [5] Pakistan has been ranked 7th in diabetes disease burden in the world, it is projected to reach 15% by 2030, and if the present scenario continues, Pakistan is expected to move to top 4th place. [68] According to the current statistics of International Diabetes Federation (IDF), in Pakistan there are 7.028 million cases of adults (2079 years) with diabetes, with 6.9% prevalence rate and 2.928 million undiagnosed adults with diabetes. [4] T2DM is the most prevalent (>90%) type of diabetes, [9] requiring patients to adopt specific life style modifications in addition to continued pharmacotherapy. Because of the chronic nature of T2DM, diabetes self-care activities have become an integral component of effective diabetes care around the globe. [10] Glycemic control, measured in terms of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), has been associated with significant reduction in diabetes-related complications and economic burden. [11] T2DM is a sel Continue reading >>

Psychometric Properties Of The Diabetes Self-management Questionnaire (dsmq) In Urdu

Background: Most of the currently available tools do not exhibit a meaningful correlation between self-management practices and glycemic control of diabetes patients. The Diabetes Self-Management Questionnaire (DSMQ) has been developed to examine the self-management practices which are significantly associated with patients glycemic control. However, the Urdu version of this tool is not available, therefore, the objective of this study was to translate DSMQ in Urdu language and validate it type 2 diabetes people in Pakistan.Method: DSMQ was translated in to Urdu language by using a standard forward-backward process. Psychometric properties of DSMQ-Urdu version has been evaluated form a 130 type 2 diabetes patients. Reliability and validity analysis of the translated DSMQ was done by using Cronbachs coefficient and confirmatory factor analysis.Results: The sum scale and sub scales of DSMQ demonstrated a significant internal consistency. The overall Cronbachs for the Urdu version of DSMQ scale was 0.96. The Spearman correlation between HbA1c and DSMQ sum scale was -0.78 (p < 0.001). Linear regression analysis revealed that only Glucose Management and Dietary Control were significantly associated with lower HbA1c values (OR = -0.42, p = 0.004 and = -0.30, p = 0.028, respectively), whereas, Physical Activity and Health-Care Use were not (p > 0.05). Adequate fit to the data was achieved for single factor model after successively modelling all significant correlations between the items error terms, with Chi2 = 106.6, df = 84, p = 0.049; TLI = 0.98, CFI = 0.99 and RMSEA = 0.05 (90% CI 0.01 0.07). Whereas a comparatively lower fit indices to data were observed in case of four factor model. Conclusion: The Urdu version of the DSMQ was observed to be a reliable and valid instrum Continue reading >>

Volume 4, Issue 3 , 10 July 2017, Pages 252-259 Psychometric properties and characteristics of the Diabetes Self Management Scale Author links open overlay panel BesherGharaibehRN, PhDa Assessing diabetes self care management is essential for nursing care for diabetes. There is a need to have valid and reliable scales that assess the actual performance of diabetes self management. The purpose of this study was to revise and conduct psychometric testing and analysis of the Diabetes Self Management Scale (DSMS). A cross-sectional methodological design was used. A convenience sample was used and 78 adults with diabetes and taking insulin from five sites in the Midwest area of the U.S participated in the study. Reliability analysis was done using Ferketich techniques to make decisions about whether any given item should be retained or deleted. A descriptive analysis for the 60 items of the scale was conducted; several items had low variability compared to the other items on the scale. The correlation matrices showed that a total of 20 items had poor item characteristics. These 20 items were deleted resulting in developing 40- item version of the scale. The 40 - item scale had high level of internal consistency (Cronbach's =0.947). The validity testing of the 40 - item scale was guided by the Research Model for Diabetes Self Care Management; results were congruent with the model and showed strong correlation with self efficacy, moderate correlation with self care agency, and weak correlation with diabetes knowledge. The items and the scale (DSMS) have undergone careful psychometric testing. The 40-item DSMS is a reliable and valid instrument to measure diabetes self care management among people with diabetes.

Description of intervention(s) / exposure Usual care visits to health care provider for 12 months duration of study. Plus the use of a mobile phone application (named My care Hub). The application is a software to be installed on participants mobile phones. It has both an android and i-phone versions with comprehensive functionalities which includes; 1. Capacity for users to log and track their blood glucose readings, food intake and physical activity habits over time. 2. Analytical functions which aid presentation of recorded data in a graphical form. This will help participants to set their health care targets and monitor trends in their self-care activities. 3. In response to the logged blood glucose reading, participants will receive automated personalized self-care educational messages. Additionally, participants will also receive through the application, general educational, behavioural and motivational messages twice weekly for 12 months. All messages will deliver information on the seven essential self-care behaviours in people with diabetes which predict good outcomes namely; lifestyle modifications (healthy eating and improved physical activity), monitoring of blood sugar, compliance with medications, good problem-solving skills, healthy coping skills, and risk-reduction behaviours (such as smoking caseation and reduction in alcohol intake). Compilation of both the personalized and general messages is by a Diabetes Educator and an Endocrinologist with over 7 years experience in the management of people with diabetes. To access how best the application works for participants, they will be asked to input those self-care measurements at least twice a week; once on a weekend and once during the weekdays. The measurements inputted into the application will be auto Continue reading >>
