Collaboration with the University of Pretoria results in thesis on SME for people with chronic diseases.
The goal of the Diabetes Literacy project is to provide evidence to increase the effectiveness of diabetes self-management education in the EU. The outcomes will inform policy decisions on improving the care for the growing number of people with diabetes. Partners from six EU Member States, Israel, the US and Taiwan will perform a content analysis of national diabetes strategies across the EU. The cost and cost-effectiveness of different forms of self-management education will be assessed, as well as the implementation fidelity of current programs. The moderating role of health literacy will be analysed. Literacy-appropriate materials will be developed and tested.
