Abstract
An empowerment approach to supporting self-care management skills for people with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Indonesia: Research proposal. Background: Indonesia currently has 10.3 million people with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) making it one of the top ten countries globally, with projections that the number will increase to 16.7 million by 2045. People with T2DM require support to manage their disease. Little is known about how patients with T2DM are supported by health care professionals (HCPs) in Indonesia. Previous studies on patient empowerment interventions have focused on the micro-level of providing patient health education with less involvement of care teams in designing interventions. Objectives: This study aims to explore the existing approaches used in the care of people with T2DM and propose a model of patient care framed by an empowerment approach. Methodology: A two phase single case study strategy will be used. Phase one will explore the existing T2DM care in supporting patients' self-care management skills across three levels of health care services. Data collection will comprise of direct observations of interactions between patients, their families and HCPs, a review of clinical guideline documents and health education programs, and interviews with patients, their families, and HCPs. Thematic data analysis will be conducted at this phase. Results from phase one will inform the phase two development of an alternative model of T2DM care in supporting patients' self-care management skills. Phase two will include focus groups with expert HCPs working with people with T2DM to seek consensus for a newly developed patient empowerment approach. Summary: This presentation will outline this case study proposal in detail
