Fifty subjects completed the two times post-testing data. All participants' diabetes knowledge and self-management activities were poor. The A1C levels were controlled not well (8.6%±2.4) before case management . ANCOVA repeated measures were used to examine the effectiveness of the intervention. There was significant differences (p <.05) in diabetes knowledge(7.4±1.2), self-management activities(51.2±8.6), inpatient satisfaction (4.5±0.5), and A1C levels (7.6%±1.8). We suggest that case management model could be applied broadly among inpatients with diabetes. In the experimental group, one of self-management activities was significant difference in foot care(p <.05), but SMBG was difficult to implemented for diabetics.
Combined strategies may be applied to promote SMBG behaviors and keep case number should be improved in the future
