Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Regular diabetes patient education
Regular professionally-led diabetes patient education
Behavioral: Regular diabetes patient education
Professionally-led diabetes patient education delivered by health professionals over a two day period
Experimental: Augmented Diabetes Patient Education
Regular professionally-led diabetes patient education augmented by participation in the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program
Behavioral: Augmented diabetes patient education
Professionally-led diabetes patient education led by nurse and dietitian over a two day period augmented by participation in the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. This program takes place for 2 1/2 hours per week for six consecutive weeks.

Detailed Description:

In the current health care environment, it is unacceptable for patient education programs to merely provide information. Rather, educational programs must concentrate on behavior change and on supporting patients to become more confident and motivated in participating in managing their health. Persons with type 2 diabetes attending a Diabetes Education Centre will be assigned to either a group that receives regular professionally-led diabetes patient education (control group) or to to a group that receives regular professionally-led diabetes patient education augmented by lay-led self-management education i.e., the Stanford six-session Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (experimental group). Data will be collected at two points in time (0 and 6 months). Outcome measures will show if participants who receive self-management training in addition to regular patient education are able to:manage their diabetes more effectively; engage in the specific behaviors that keep the condition from worsening; achieve more control over their condition; and use the health care system more effectively.
