Abstract

The objective of this IQP was to develop an information source for Type I diabetics. A web page providing basic information about diabetes was created. A questionnaire to access the impact of diabetes on the quality of life was developed based on extensive discussions with physicians and patients. The results of surveys on the impact of diabetics indicate a broad understanding of this disease by patients, physicians and non-diabetics. In addition, patients are generally aware of the monitoring and treatments of diabetes.
