Paying It Forward To Improve Access In Vietnam

Paying It Forward To Improve Access In Vietnam

paying it forward to improve access in Vietnam In November 2012, Novo Nordisk opened a new office in Ho Chi Minh City. In partnership with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health, the company launched the Vietnam Diabetes Care Program to tackle some of the main challenges of diabetes in Vietnam such as the limited number of physicians trained in diabetes care, the large number of undiagnosed patients and the limited diabetes care infrastructure. One of the key actions is taking place in collaboration with Steno Diabetes Center to run diabetes education programmes over the next three years. Jane Rohde Voigt, Education Development at Steno Diabetes Center, recently returned from a trip to Vietnam. I was particularly surprised to see the high number of patients with foot ulcers a diabetes-related complication which is often treated at a late stage in Vietnam. It is within timely management of diabetes and complication screening and treatment that we can make a difference to patients with our education programme, says Voigt. Together with Ulla Bjerre-Christensen, Head of Steno Education Center, Voigt has been engaging with local partners in Vietnam to develop a Train-the-Trainer education programme. The programmes goal is to provide better care for diabetes patients by training more healthcare professionals. The trip to Vietnam was an important step in getting a clearer picture of the local challenges and needs. The need for better and earlier treatment Vietnam is experiencing a rapid rise in the prevalence of diabetes. It is estimated that there are close to 5 million people with diabetes in Vietnam (1). In many cases, diagnosed patients are treated suboptimally and the majority of patients fail to achieve recommended treatment targets. But most troubling is the more than 60% t Continue reading >>

Diabetes Care And Service Access Among Elderly Vietnamese With Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes Care And Service Access Among Elderly Vietnamese With Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes care and service access among elderly Vietnamese with type 2 diabetes Vietnamese patients are disproportionately represented in type 2 diabetes mellitus statistics and also incur high rates of diabetes complications. This situation is compounded by limited access to health care. The aim of this project was to gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties Vietnamese patients experience when accessing services and managing their type 2 diabetes mellitus, and to identify factors that are important in promoting health service use. Three focus groups with 15 Vietnamese participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus, 60 to >70years of age, were conducted in Vietnamese. Open-ended questions were used and focussed on experiences of living with diabetes and access to healthcare services in the Inner Northwest Melbourne region. Audio recordings were transcribed and then translated into English. Data were analysed using a thematic analysis framework. Findings indicate four main themes, which together provide some insight into the experiences of living with diabetes and accessing ongoing care and support, for elderly Vietnamese with type 2 diabetes. Themes included: (1) the value of being healthy; (2) controlling diabetes; (3) staying healthy; and (4) improving services and information access. Participants in this study were encouraged to adhere to diabetes self-management principles, based largely on a fear of medical complications. Important aspects of healthcare access were identified as; being treated with respect, having their questions answered and having access to interpreters and information in Vietnamese. Attention to these details is likely to lead to improved access to healthcare services and ultimately to improve glycemic control and overall health status for th Continue reading >>

Cultural Considerations In Diabetes Education

Cultural Considerations In Diabetes Education

AADE Practice Synopsis Introduction The chronic nature of diabetes underscores the importance of self-management education that promotes behavior skills that are necessary to optimize quality of life. Diabetes educators recognize that the most effective approach to patient education is individualized to the needs of each person with diabetes.1 Educators likewise recognize that the way a person learns, and how information is utilized depends heavily on prior life experiences and support networks; and that each of these elements is shaped by culture.2 Awareness of how culture impacts health Awareness of the need for cultural sensitivity is the first step toward providing sensitive and competent diabetes education. It is more than a finite knowledge of cultural values, beliefs, customs, language, thoughts, and actions. The need to gain relevant insight necessitates the need to develop a certain amount of cultural humility. This will help develop a mutually respectful and positive relationship among patients and health care providers. The more engaged individuals with diabetes and their support members are involved in their healthcare, the more likely they are to achieve desired outcomes and improve their quality of life. Culturally relevant definitions The AADE Practice Synopsis on Cultural Sensitivity and Diabetes Education provides insight on the role of diabetes educators in delivering appropriately tailored education. Cultural definitions germane to the understanding of cultural sensitivity and diabetes may be found in the synopsis along with the following definitions.3 Cultural sensitivity: the delivery of health information based on ethnic/cultural, norms, values, social beliefs, historical, environmental factors unique to specific population. Cultural competence: kn Continue reading >>
