A survey to determine the adequacy of information the geriatric diabetic patient has about his disease.
The diabetic patient is faced with a disease that does not significantly affect his appearance or his sense of well-being after control is achieved. However, this condition will persist for the rest of his life and will require considerable attention to time-consuming details. These characteristics may cause those who give care or assist in the care of the diabetic patient to assume a casual attitude toward the management of a chronic disease in which the constant control largely depends on the quality of sustained professional care.
