The tool aims to enable patients to make confident treatment choices by minimizing anxiety. It is a practical guide developed to help professionals identify, explore and address patient concerns about starting insulin treatment. Rather than dictating to patients, it recommends an empathetic approach that involves asking open-ended questions and active listening.
With it, practitioners can probe deep-rooted patient concerns and attitudes towards starting insulin therapy, for example, the benefits of insulin, self-blame and health, daily life, social issues, injection issues and the risk of side-effects.
