Background: The aim of the present research is to predict the self-care behaviors based on emotional distress and physician – patient’s relationship in adolescents with diabetes.
Methods: The research design was correlation and the study population included all adolescents with diabetes at Shiraz city. For this purpose, 198 adolescent patients participated in the study through the convenience sampling method. Research instruments included the Questionnaire of Diabetes Self-management, Emotional Distress Questionnaire and finally Physician–Patient’s Relationship Questionnaire. To analyze the data, the simultaneous multiple regression methods were applied using SPPS (version 17).
Results: Regression analysis showed that emotional distress (β=-0.58, P<0.001) significantly (negative) predicted diabetes self-care behaviors. Also, among the components of emotional distress only barriers to treatment (β=-0.53, P<0.001) significantly (negative) predicted diabetes self-care behaviors. However, results showed that physician–patient’s relationship did not significantly predicted diabetes self-care behaviors.
Conclusion: According to the results, it can be argued that the emotional distress (especially barriers to treatment) variable, play an important role in addressing diabetes self-care behaviors in adolescents.
