|Abstract:||In this doctorate dissertation, a population-, practice- and patient-based approach was used to assess care in young-onset diabetes. Studies were conducted using four different methodologies. The first, a longitudinal database study, examined clinical outcomes in young-onset diabetes. The second study, a systematic review, evaluated the effectiveness of prior self-care interventions. The third study, a cross-sectional survey, examined self-care behaviours and the impact of psychological health and self-efficacy using network analysis. The fourth, a qualitative study utilising in-depth interviews, identified barriers and facilitators of self-care behaviours. Results showed poor metabolic profiles in young-onset diabetes and a lack of effectiveness of prior self-care interventions. Network analysis suggested that self-efficacy and psychological health had a central or direct roles in diet and exercise behaviours. A mindset- based approach was identified qualitatively that could inform the design of an individualised care intervention.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/163576||DOI:||10.32657/10356/163576||Schools:||Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine)||Organisations:||National Healthcare Group Polyclinics||Rights:||This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0).||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
