Abstract

OLLER GOMEZ, Jorge  and  AGRAMONTE MARTINEZ, Mayra. Programa de educación del diabético: Evaluación de su efecto. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2002, vol.18, n.4, pp.260-263. ISSN 0864-2125.

An evaluative research was made to assess the influence of a basic educative intervention on the development of knowledge and abilities of the diabetic patient concerning his selfcare and control in order to observe its effect in 3 family physicians' offices of the area of "Mario Muñoz Monroy" Polyclinic, in Boyeros municipality. An improvement of the knowledge and abilities of the diabetic patients was observed, since after having taken the Basic Information Course the number of right answers increased 13.5 % by totals. It was also known that the correct answers are more frequent among patients aged 56 and over. The highest percentages of right answers were found among men and corresponded to the group of questions about the knowledge of the disease, the symptomalogy and the diet.
