Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This study provides normative data, divided by age and gender, for the Diabetes Self-Management Profile (DSMP), an empirically supported structured interview that assesses adherence with the type 1 diabetes treatment regimen. Despite wide use, normative data on the DSMP have yet to be reported.

METHODS:

The sample included 444 parents and 275 youth with type 1 diabetes. The DSMP was administered by a trained clinician.

RESULTS:

For both child and parent ratings of adherence, means and standard deviations for the overall sample and subdivision by gender and three age groups are presented for normative comparisons. Subscale data (e.g., glucose monitoring, diet, exercise) are similarly presented. Lower adherence scores were reported among older adolescents relative to preadolescents.

CONCLUSIONS:

The literature has lacked normative data on pediatric diabetes adherence. These data present means and standard deviations for parent and child ratings of regimen adherence from a relatively large sample of youth with diabetes that can be utilized for normative comparisons for clinical and research purposes.
