    Author : Susanne Amsberg; Unn-Britt Johansson; Ulf Adamson; Per-Eric Lins; Regina Wredling; Berit Rokne Hanestad; Sophiahemmet Högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Diabetes-related distress; Psychometrics; Behaviour modification; Cognitive behaviour therapy; Behavioural medicine; Glycaemic control; Predictor; Lipohypertrophy; Insulin absorption; Injection technique; Nursing; Omvårdnad; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Type 1 diabetes; diabetes-related distress; psychometrics; behaviour modification; cognitive behaviour therapy; behavioural medicine; glycaemic control; predictor; lipohypertrophy; insulin absorption; injection technique;

    Abstract : Introduction: A landmark report has shown that improving glycaemic control among type 1 diabetes patients markedly reduces diabetes-related complications. In clinical practice, however, many patients have problems in adhering to the treatment, and thus remain in poor glycaemic control. READ MORE

  4. 4. Behavior change intervention and fear of hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes
