Leader: Associate Professor Bjørg Oftedal

The purpose of the study in this work package (WP1) is to develop new knowledge on how use of web-based follow-up in primary care can improve HbA1c and self-management of type 2 diabetes in adults.  

Aim of the study:

  • To develop web-based follow-up measures to improve self-management in adults with type 2 diabetes.
  • To describe experiences with participation in web-based follow-up among adults with type 2 diabetes.
  • To investigate effects of web-based follow-up measures after 3 months, 6 and 12 months, and compare these with routine follow-ups in primary care.
