Thesis Topic/Title
Diabetes self-management: psychological factors and self-protective behaviours

Description

This project will provide an initial exploration of psychological factors which contribute to self-management among people living with type 2 diabetes in the West Moreton and Darling Downs regions. Utilising established socio-cognitive and social-psychological models of health and illness, this project will explore enablers and barriers to improved health behaviours (e.g., diet, exercise) and how modifiable risk factors impact upon health outcomes, in regional and rural settings. Socio-cultural and demographic features associated with greater health disparities will also be explored; as well as implications for improving health promotion, self-management and health outcomes.
