Abstract
T2DM is a lifelong condition that requires consistent attention to glycemic monitoring, lifestyle therapies, and self-management to adequately control the disease. The lack of time during an office visit for DMSE/S and cultural barriers (language and relatability of educational materials) can hinder patients from adequate self-management and glycemic control. The purpose of this evidence-based project was to evaluate whether participating in the Partners in Care DSME/S course resulted in improved health outcomes through increasing diabetes knowledge, self-efficacy, and self-management skills in those with T2DM. The site of this project was held at the Queens Medical Center West Oahu Diabetes Management and Education Center (QMC-WO DMEC) with 7 participants. An evaluation of the course using pre-and post-surveys was used to study changes in self-efficacy, self-management, and diabetes knowledge scores after one Partners in Care DSME/S course. Analysis of data resulted in a 33% increase in diabetes self-management and a 14% increase in diabetes self-efficacy. Results of this project support the use of the Partners in Care DSME/S courses in improving diabetes self-efficacy and self-management. DSME/S courses require low financial and staffing requirements and can be implemented anywhere there are willing T2DM patients. Given the positive outcomes of this project, expansion of the number of courses offered, students, and locations may need to be explored going forward.
