Abstract

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a complex, invasive childhood condition. Optimal glycemic control, essential to minimize risk of life-changing complications, is difficult to achieve. The DEPICTED trial evaluated a training program in consultation skills for pediatric diabetes teams. Qualitative descriptive analysis of questionnaire free-text comments from children, adolescents and carers participating in DEPICTED identified the emotional impact of living with T1D and how health professionals' communication skills in clinic influence the patient/carer experience. Healthcare professionals caring for children/adolescents with T1D and carers need training in patient-centered communication skills. Emotional needs of patients/carers need to be systematically assessed and addressed.
