Abstract

While it is generally assumed that good diabetes knowledge in the individual with the condition leads to better clinical outcomes (including glycaemic control) and diabetes-related quality of life (QoL), studies exploring the relationship between knowledge, glycaemic control and QoL are lacking. This article describes a pilot study conducted to examine this relationship in people with type 2 diabetes managed in primary care. Findings suggest that the relationship between knowledge and diabetes control is complex. The authors conclude that the challenge is to develop educational programmes that enhance knowledge in tandem with other factors reflecting the characteristics and needs of the individual at specific points in their disease experience.
