Subsequently, the comprehensive understanding of a phenomenon with the virtues of critical review of selected literatures can also reveal new evidences inspiring objective-oriented thinking on the research problem (Aveyard, 2010). 2.0. Background/Justification of the Review ‘Type 2 diabetes’ is considered as a chronic disease which causes strong negative impacts on health inhibiting the life span of the sufferer. ‘Type 2 diabetes’, represents majority of diabetes patients in the world population, being one of the most common long-lasting endocrine illness. Medical observation depicts that in the short run, ‘type 2 diabetes’ may lead to physical weakness, while in the long run it can also cause sightlessness and renal failure among others. There are several strict guidelines adviced to be followed by the sufferers of type 2 diabetes in order to stay healthy and fit. As stated by Cilia (2007), continuous observations revealed that in spite of strict clinical guidelines for diabetes control, almost 60% of diabetes patients do not satisfy suggested clinical objectives, resulting in the increasing number of medical cases confirming ‘type 2 diabetes’ syndromes. With increasing occurrences of ‘type 2 diabetes’ among people, it becomes quite likely that more patients will have a need for rigorous controlling of health in terms of proper dietary habits, exercise and medication. It has also been observed in this regard that the actual challenge for ‘type 2 diabetes’ patients is to balance the short run and long run life quality against the stress of regular and thorough self-management (Cilia, 2007). In recent times, various suites to educate the patients about self-management have become the focal point among healthcare researches...
The paper stresses that self-management education has often been argued to possess considerable significance to control patient’s responsive behaviour to the treatment procedure which in turn tends to improve the health outcomes. Diabetes is often referred as one of the most complex diseases. In order to accomplish best results for treatment of this disease, patients’ must have good knowledge about personal health situation. The patients must therefore follow a vigilant self-management approach to cope up with the problems of ‘type 2 diabetes’. The ethical approval for the research will be taken from university, and also from any specific committee relevant to the research as well as hospital authorities.
This report makes a conclusion that health education includes aspects such as beliefs, empowerments, inspirations and level of capability to deal with the issues of diabetes. Health education is also considered as a key to assist patients to accomplish self-management in long run complex circumstances. Therefore, it can be affirmed that the proposed review shall help to determine how important health education is for managing chronic diabetes and ensuring a healthy lifestyle for the patients. This study will be thus based on the philosophy that education can provide additional support to the diabetes patients and benefits them in terms of better medical consequences. It can provide better management of psychological issues along with enhance their readiness to change bad habits such as smoking, unhealthy eating and drinking among others which tends to increase the ill-effects of such diseases.
