PEACH: Patient Engagement and Coaching for Health: An intensive treatment intervention for patients with type 2 diabetes
Grant number: 566586 | Funding period: 2009 - 2010
Diabetes care is a partnership between health professionals and patients, but each faces difficulties in optimising medical care. The PEACH study exoplores how practice nurses can work with patients to empower them to manage their own condition and medicines better and be more active in working with their doctor to improve their diabetes control. The study could have important implications for patients and the way Governments fund primary care.
