dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the study was to examine the effects of nurse-coordinated telephone monitoring among community-dwelling older adults with type 2 diabetes. In a randomized controlled trial 28 participants (aged 65-84yrs) with type 2 diabetes living in Southeastern Ontario were randomly assigned to an intervention group (15) and control group (13). The intervention group received weekly nurse-coordinated telephone monitoring and the control group received usual care from their family doctor. The main outcome measures were depression and diabetes-related stress as measured by measured by the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and the Problem Areas In Diabetes (PAID) questionnaire at baseline and 12-weeks. All participants completed the study. At 12 weeks, mean scores for the intervention group were significantly lower for the GDS (p = .00) and the PAID (p = .03). Participants were receptive to the intervention. Nurse telephone monitoring may decrease depressive symptoms and diabetes-related stress among community-dwelling older adults.en
