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, three non-EU Member states and two collaborating partners have performed a content analysis of national diabetes strategies across the EU and have mapped diabetes self-management programs in Europe. The cost and cost-effectiveness of different forms of self-management education were assessed, as well as the implementation fidelity of current programs. The moderating role of health literacy has been analysed. Digital literacy-appropriate materials have been developed and tested.
