Abstract The efficacy of diabetes treatment should not be evaluated solely by HbA1c levels as they should also focus on patient-reported outcomes PROssuch as patient satisfaction, wellbeing and quality of life.

The new Change measure allowed patients equal opportunity for indicating improvement and deterioration. A Japanese journal publishing in Japanese. Fitzpatrick R, Hopkins A, editor. This would also enable them to draw comparisons between their findings and those from earlier studies using only the DTSQs. Treatment satisfaction and quality of life with insulin glargine plus insulin lispro compared with NPH insulin plus unmodified human insulin in individuals with type 1 diabetes.

The important differences lie in the wording of the response options and instructions, which, in the DTSQc, direct the respondent to compare their experience of the current treatment with their experience of treatment before the study began. A further possible advantage of retrospective change measures is that they may correspond more closely to the kind of reports that patients are most likely to give in routine clinical practice.

Diabetes care and research in Europe: These studies suggest that the DTSQc does not simply elicit positive change responses regardless of treatment circumstances, but does genuinely reflect a response to improvements in treatment borne out by experience. These results emphasize the importance of patient satisfaction in the assessment of diabetes treatment, which cannot be fully assessed by glycemic indices, including HbA1c.

Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine. Treatment Satisfaction scores across both questionnaires were ranked separately for each study. The DTSQc shows enhanced responsiveness to change in these patients too. The most common factor structures seen for the DTSQs show all the Satisfaction items loading together on factor 1 this is the only important aspect of the questionnaire structure indicating a coherent scale measuring treatment satisfactionwith the Perceived Hyper- and Hypoglycaemia items items 2 and 3 loading together on factor 2 or separately on factors 1 and 2 or on 2 and 3.

The assessment of treatment satisfaction is not only performed for research purposes to compare treatments, but also should be used to assess the quality of diabetes care in clinical settings. Treatment satisfaction is assessed as the sum of the scores of the six diavetes on the first factor total score 36with a higher score indicating higher treatment satisfaction.

Conflicts of Interest The author declares no conflict of interest. Thus, increases in treatment satisfaction produced positive scores and decreases negative scores. Psychometric analysis Psychometric analysis was carried out to check the validity and reliability of the English- and German-speaking versions separately for language, pooled for type of diabetesusing factor analysis with principal components as the extraction method with Varimax rotation. Methods Two multinational, openlabel, randomised-controlled trials one for patients with type 1 diabetes, the other for type 2 compared new, longer-acting insulin glargine with standard NPH basal insulin.

Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire: Additionally, the impact of ceiling and floor effects is investigated here in detail. Furthermore, a simple test of the difference between these two z scores 4. Multicentre study to assess quality of life and glycaemic control of type 2 diabetic patients treated with insulin compared with oral hypoglycaemic agents. Treatment Satisfaction increased overall in both diaetes insulin glargine and NPH treatment groups, but with a questipnnaire greater increase in the insulin glargine group.

The two scales treattment compared have different widths. Total score was calculated as the sum of scores of Q 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. TOP Related Posts.

DTSQ: Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire - 8 questions

Zululabar It enables patients to record their experience of change in satisfaction and perceived blood glucose control more precisely and thus provides greater validity in determining the benefits or drawbacks of a new treatment. The efficacy of diabetes treatment should not be evaluated solely by HbA1c levels as they should also focus on patient-reported outcomes PROssuch as patient satisfaction, wellbeing and quality of life. The problem is not unique to the DTSQs. However, as the effect sizes based on these ts differ significantly despite the positive correlations, the stated results are conservative. For Perceived Hyperglycaemia and Hypoglycaemia, positive scores indicate an increase in Perceived Hyperglycaemia or Hypoglycaemia and hence deterioration in these outcomes. Insulin regimens for the non-insulin dependent: Distributions of scores As anticipated, distribution of the raw baseline DTSQs scores was skewed for Treatment Satisfaction and Perceived Hypoglycaemia [ 5 ]; while Perceived Hyperglycaemia scores were normally distributed. Treatment satisfaction and psychological well-being with insulin glargine compared with NPH in patients with type 1 diabetes.

DTSQ - Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire

Clare Bradley: ku. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Background The results of using status measures to identify any changes in treatment satisfaction strongly suggest a need for specific change instruments designed to overcome the ceiling effects frequently observed at baseline. Status measures may leave little room to show improvement in situations where baseline ceiling effects are observed.
