According to research published in the Journal of Evaluation of Clinical Practice, nurse-guided interventions can improve control of HbA1c in patients with type 2 diabetes.
The study looked at adults with type 2 diabetes and elevated hemoglobin A1c levels. Patients were randomized to standard care, nurse-led education intervention, or nurse-led education plus acceptance therapy.
Nurse-led intervention groups had significant reductions in hemoglobin A1c levels compared with the control group.
When it comes to managing chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes, nurse-led education as an adjunct treatment may make a big difference.
