Because of its high prevalence and health and social impact, diabetes is one of the chronic diseases in which it is essential to identify clinical actions that provide the greatest possible added value, with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of care. In addition, diabetes is very often accompanied, causally related or aggravated by other chronic health conditions such as obesity and overweight or cardiovascular disease.
Mortality, hospitalization and secondary complication events are very frequent, and can be reduced by interventions based on patient education, self-care training and management of the derived complications. All these interventions pose major challenges for healthcare professionals, and thus this Special Issue aims to provide selected contributions on advances in clinical and educational interventions that contribute to improving the quality of life and self-management of diabetic patients and to preventing complications of the disease and associated comorbidities.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to: Diabetes risk factors; diabetic patient assessment; diabetic education programs to promote patient autonomy; adherence and compliance to the therapeutic regimen; diet and physical exercise; self-analysis and self-monitoring; management of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia; management of diabetes complications; control and follow-up of comorbidities; psycho-social and/or family support to the diabetic patient.
