collca's curator insight, April 30, 2013 7:31 AM

A well-written article describing the problems of living with type 1 diabetes. In their case the problems are tripled as 3 out of 4 of them are type 1 sufferers but even with just one it's a major problem. The article really highlights the importance of research into finding a cure for type 1 diabetes and the hope there'll be a breakthrough soon.

Developing parent expertise: A fram... [J Health Serv Res Policy. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI

PubMed comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

"

RESULTS:

Over the first year following diagnosis, experienced health professionals use four strategies to enable parental self-management of their child's diabetes. Clinicians begin by setting expectations to define the shared responsibilities for the management of the child's disease. Next, they introduce two concepts, trial and error, to help parents respond to variations in blood glucose values and pattern recognition, to help parents refine therapy. As parents gain confidence, clinicians encourage independent pro-active management. Together, these four strategies form a framework to enable development of parental expertise."
