Aim: The aim of this study was to compare how patients with diabetes type 2 self-estimate their self-consciousness, problem identification, stress management and the willingness to change before and after a daycare week. The aim was also to compare if the value on HbA1c have changed after the daycare week compared to before.
Method: A total of 60 patients who recived offer to participate in a daycare week at a clinic on a university hospital in Sweden. Patients replied a form (SWE-DES-SF-10) before (n=60) and three months after (n=35) the daycare week. They also left a blood sample for HbA1c before (n=60) and three months after (n=42) the daycare week. The forms and HbA1c-values were analyzed using wilcoxon´s signed-rank test and paired t-test.
Results: After the daycare week estimated the participating patiens their self-consciousness and problem identification higher than before the daycare week. The value on HbA1c had reduced after the daycare week compared to before.
Conclusions: A daycare week for patients with diabetes type 2 may affect patients´ self-consciousness and their ability to identify problems and therefore increase their ability to manage their disease.
