Meta analysis of the glycemic outcomes with the use of the Conversation Map tools to deliver diabetes self-management education and support (DSME/S)

USA • 2016

Healthy Interactions’ Conversation Map tools are the most deployed DSME/S curriculum in the world. The diabetes Map tools were developed in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association in the U.S.A. and the International Diabetes Federation outside of the USA. Over 80,000 diabetes educators have been trained to facilitate the Map sessions in over 120 countries. The effectiveness of the Map tools can vary from one cohort to the next due to cultural implications, although the program has been translated and made culturally relevant for each country in which it is used. Previous research assessing outcomes for specific cohorts of patients has been collected, but this is the first study to evaluate Map tools outcomes at the macro level.
