Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Patient-provider communication and type 2 diabetes management-related outcomes in Hispanic adults
by Martinez, Jazmin, M.P.H., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 47; 10108177
Abstract (Summary)

Growing research has documented the relationship between patient-provider communication (PPC) and health outcomes. Hispanics are disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and diabetes-related health complications. Hispanics also exhibit poorer self-management behaviors compared to non-Hispanic Whites. Further understanding of the association between PPC and self-management behaviors among Hispanics may help explain these disparities. This study’s objective was to assess whether elements of PPC were related to frequency of patient glucose monitoring among Hispanic adults with T2DM. Findings indicate that frequency of glucose monitoring was not significantly influenced by PPC. Additional research is needed to explore the association between different aspects of PPC and other T2DM self-management behaviors among Hispanics.
