Using Patient Profiles for Sustained Diabetes Management Among People With Type 2 Diabetes
ORIGINAL RESEARCH — Volume 20 — March 16, 2023
Radar chart displaying the percentile of each indicator from the response frontier in different patient profiles. The response frontier was used to calculate the deviation from the highest score for every item caused by wider variations in the item scale ranges. For example, health education scores in poor management, medication adherence, and good management are 7.3, 6.3. and 7.3, respectively; therefore, the response frontier of health education score is (10 − 7.3)/10 = 0.27; (10 − 6.3)/10 = 0.37, and (10 − 7.3/10) = 0.27, respectively. The outer ring (the good management group) depicts better performance than the inner rings (the poor management group and the medication adherence group) in the 8 items used for the latent profile analysis. Abbreviations: SMBG, self-monitoring of blood glucose; DMSES–C, diabetes management self-efficacy scale (Chinese version); TSRQd–A, treatment self-regulation questionnaire on diabetes–autonomous regulatory style; TSRQd-C, treatment self-regulation questionnaire on diabetes–controlled regulatory style.
