The resultant values produced by the correlation algorithm are normalized to a scale of 0 to This aggregate measure is then used to adjust the previously calculated correlation coefficients in order to provide a more precise indication of the relationship between occupations and to create an accurate representation of the asymmetry of transfer between occupations. The adjusted TORQ scores still take values from 0 to Obviously, each occupation has a TORQ value of relative to itself for all descriptors.
Improving management of type 1 diabetes in the UK: A mixed-method analysis of the barriers to and facilitators of successful diabetes self-management, a health economic analysis, a cluster randomised controlled trial of different models of delivery of an educational intervention and the potential of insulin pumps and additional educator input to improve outcomes.
This study attempted to replicate these findings in a UK outpatient sample of people with diabetes. QoL was significantly improved by 3 months and maintained at both follow-up points. What are the core self-management behaviours? Study aims were to 1 describe and compare the way diabetes structured education courses have evolved in the UK, 2 identify and agree components of course curricula perceived as core across courses and 3 identify and classify self-care behaviours in order to develop a questionnaire assessment tool.
Curricula from five courses were examined and nine educators from those courses were interviewed. Transcripts were analysed using framework analysis. Eighty-three courses were identified.
Components of course curricula perceived as core by all diabetes educators were: The broad areas of self-management behaviour identified at the consensus meeting were carbohydrate counting and awareness, insulin dose adjustment, self-monitoring of blood glucose, managing hypoglycaemia, managing equipment and injection sites; and accessing health care.
Specific self-care behaviours within each area were identified. Planned future work will develop an updated questionnaire tool to access self-care behaviours. This will enable assessment of the effectiveness of existing structured education programmes at producing desired changes in behaviour.
It will also help people with diabetes and their healthcare team identify areas where additional support is needed to initiate or maintain changes in behaviour. Provision of such support may improve glycaemia and reduce diabetes-related complications and severe hypoglycaemia.
A qualitative longitudinal investigation, Journal of Clinical Nursing 23 pp. To explore patients' experiences of, views about and need for, social support after attending a structured education programme for type 1 diabetes. Patients who attend structured education programmes attain short-term improvements in biomedical and quality-of-life measures but require support to sustain self-management principles over the longer term.
Social support can influence patients' self-management practices; however, little is known about how programme graduates use other people's help. This study was informed by the principles of grounded theory and involved concurrent data collection and analysis.
Data were analysed using an inductive, thematic approach.
In-depth interviews were undertaken postcourse, six and 12 months later, with 30 adult patients with type 1 diabetes recruited from Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating courses in the United Kingdom. Patients' preferences for social support from other people ranged from wanting minimal involvement, to benefiting from auxiliary forms of assistance, to regular monitoring and policing.
New self-management skills learnt on their courses prompted and facilitated patients to seek and obtain more social support. This study responds to calls for deeper understanding of the social context in which chronic illness self-management occurs.
It highlights how patients can solicit and receive more social support from family members and friends after implementing self-care practices taught on education programmes.
Relevance to clinical practice: Health professionals including diabetes specialist nurses and dietitians should explore: While patients found determination of quick acting insulin doses relatively straightforward, many struggled, over time, to determine the correct mealtime ratios and adjust basal insulin doses independently.
While patients are motivated to use flexible intensive insulin therapy, they expressed a need for on-going health professional input, particularly to support adjustment of background insulin doses and mealtime ratios.

This study reports an innovative theory-driven approach for developing filmed peer support for cancer self-management. Peer support conventionally includes empathetic interaction between people with shared experiences.
This unique study considers how to authentically communicate peer empathy in a one-way film narrative. We co-created a film based on phenomenological interviews with seven men who had volunteered to support other men by sharing their experiences of coping with prostate cancer.
The film contributed to successful engagement with self-management. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of the interview data was conducted to explore the components of experiential empathy that the men had communicated.
Four themes were identified illustrating what men wanted other men to know about coping with prostate cancer: Going into the unknown, it was difficult but I got through highlighted trauma and the importance of having a determined attitude; Only you can do it illustrated the triumph of their journey and of regaining control; I haven?The applicant appears for enrollment appointment with required identity documents in this process step.
