Abstract

This study investigated the effects of a nurse-coordinated intervention on patients with type 2 diabetes in Korea. Fifteen patients were randomly assigned to an intervention group and 10 to a control group. The intervention was implemented for 12 weeks by telephone. Patients in the intervention group had a mean decrease of 1.2% in glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels and those in the control group had a mean increase of 0.5%. Patients' satisfaction with care was higher in the intervention group than in the control group after the intervention. These findings indicated that the nurse-coordinated intervention could improve HbA1c levels and satisfaction with care in patients with type 2 diabetes in Korea.
