Article

posted by Research Admin 1 on 11 February 2019

This qualitative research explores the barriers that inhibit many Australian adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) to engage in healthy behaviour and avoid complications. The authors conclude that, "Multi-level strategies are needed to address this wide range of factors that are beyond the scope of single services or organisations. These could include tailoring health education and resources to e-health literacy and culture, attention to social networks and the patient-provider relationship, and facilitating access to affordable on-site allied health services."
