View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Objective:: to evaluate the effectiveness of the telephone intervention for promotingself-care related to physical activity and following a diet plan in users withdiabetes, compared to conventional monitoring of users over a six-month period.

Method:: this was a randomized clinical trial, which included 210 users with diabetes,linked to eight Primary Health Units of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Theexperimental group (104 members) received six telephone interventions over thesix-month monitoring; the control group (106 members) received conventionalmonitoring. To evaluate the self-care practices related to physical activity andfollowing a healthy eating plan, in both groups, the self-care questionnaire wasapplied before the intervention and at three and six months after its start.

Results:: the mean effect of self-care scores in the experimental group was 1.03 to 1.78higher than the control group, with progressive and significant improvement(p<0.001).

Conclusion:: the results indicate that the telephone intervention had a beneficial effect ondiabetes self-care. The primary identifier of the clinical trials registry was:RBR-8wx7qb.

Mentions: Of the total of 219 users of the sample, nine did not participate in at least twotelephone interventions, with it not being possible to establish telephone contact withtwo users of the EG and one user of the CG (incorrect phone number or the user did notanswer the calls), two users hospitalized (CG=1 and EG=1) and one user having died(EG=1). In the course of the research, three users (CG=2 and EG=1) changed their addressand/or telephone number. Figure 3 shows that, atthe end of six months, 210 users completed the study and were analyzed, these being 104of the EG and 106 of the CG.
