Vécu de la maladie et ressenti des patients diabétiques de type 2 suivis par le dispositif ASALEE : une étude qualitative

Abstract : Introduction: Educational therapy is a critical treatment component for people suffering from type 2 diabetes. The current features of the healthcare system as well as the medical demography problems do not allow the general practitioners to set up educational therapy on their own in an efficient way. The ASALEE program was designed to get nurses work cooperatively with referring physicians in order to improve the quality of care and help patients manage chronic disease. Objective: Assess how type 2 diabetes patients followed by ASALEE live with their pathology. Method: Within the framework of the qualitative study, semistructured interviews were conducted with volunteer type 2 diabetes patients part of the ASALEE program across different regions: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Occitanie. Several researchers worked together on the analysis of the written transcriptions of the interviews. Results: 16 interviews were conducted in total. The interviewees considered themselves lucky to be part of the ASALEE program. Collaboration and team work between nurses and physicians - where the nurse plays a key part - was very well perceived by the patients. Nurses made themselves pretty much available - they were kind to the patients and had a positive attitude. Patients saw it as a more personalized medical follow-up. This helped patients understand their disease better and also made them conscious about the importance of changing their behavior in order to make a positive impact on the course of their disease.
