Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Diabetes is a life-long disease managed primarily by the individual. The key to successful self-management of this chronic disease is to provide the individual with knowledge, psychomotor skills, and effective psychological coping to facilitate lifestyle modifications. The process of adult learning is not an exact science. It is highly individualized. Oftentimes, the clinician would find that strategies successful for one person might not be successful for others.
