I-care: stimulating self-management in patients with type 2 diabetes. A pilot study


The overall objective of this pilot study is to test and adapt a counseling methodology delivered outside of traditional clinical settings based on modern technology. The intervention is tailored to Type 2 diabetes patients with BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2. The study involves 10 patients, who all receive standard treatment delivered by their general practitioners. The patients are also followed up by a diabetes nurse and a nutritionist in the community setting within a counseling framework based on contextual cognitive behavioural therapy applying principles geared to stimulating self-management abilities. Each patient will be counseled during a three month period. The patients will fill in mobile phone-based electronic diaries three times each day for four weeks, which will be reduced to once a week for the next two months. The counseling methodology involves evaluation of the day’s activities related to meals, physical activities, medication management, blood glucose level and the patients’ emotions and thoughts. The patients will be able to view their own registrations on a mobile phone. First daily and then weekly written situational feedbacks will be given by a diabetes nurse using a web based application for virtual counseling. The intervention aims at testing whether the intervention has clinical influence on the HbA1c levels and self-management and coping skills, and leads to lifestyle changes such as physical activity levels and eating behaviour. In addition, mental health outcomes such as emotional distress and the patient's health-related quality of life and economic outcomes are addressed. The evaluation of the pilot study will be based on in-depth interviews and questionnaires related to the usability of the technology, the experience of usefulness, and lifestyle changes. Furthermore, more detailed plans for the subsequent intervention will be presented
