Nursing PhD Student Publishes Study On Quality Of Life For Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes
July 20, 2016
Nada Abualula, a nursing PhD candidate, recently published a systematic review study focused on the quality of life for adolescents with type 1 diabetes and on evaluating diabetes educational interventions for these adolescents.
Abualula did a systematic review of six databases to gather information on quality of life outcomes of diabetes self-management education interventions for adolescents with type 1 diabetes. The goal of the review was to determine the effectiveness of diabetes self-management interventions with a skills development component on improving quality of life of adolescents with type 1 diabetes.
The review is published in The Diabetes Educator. Professors Kathryn Jacobsen of the Department of Global and Community Health, and Renee Milligan and Margaret Rodan of the School of Nursing, along with Vicki S. Conn of the University of Missouri’s Sinclair School of Nursing served as co-authors on the review.
