- Brief summarySummary

Rationale: The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (DM2) has increased significantly in the past ten years. Compared to the indigenous Dutch population, diabetes is two to five times more common in non-western ethnic minority groups. Most of the older immigrants live in a relatively traditional manner and their proficiency in the Dutch language is limited. As a result of communication problems Dutch physicians experience more difficulty in delivery op optimal diabetes care to patient of ethnic minority groups. A former study showed a poorer glyceamic control in Turkish DM2 patients compared to their Dutch counterparts, although a similar diabetes care was provided. DM2 is a complex disease and treatment usually demands for behavioural changes, and can only succeed in well cooperative patients. Therefore a good understanding of the illness by the patient is essential.
Furthermore advices as well as behavioural rules should be in line with the culture and social environment of the patients. We expect that a cultural competent education (education in the native language with respect to the patientsí culture) can improve the diabetes care to DM2 patients from non-western ethnic minority groups, and by that improve the patientsí compliance and the glycaemic control.
Objective of the study: Does an ethnic specific cultural approach, including an ethnic specific education programme and individual guidance by a bicultural educator as part of a multidisciplinary team, have a beneificial effect on the glycaemic control in Turkish Morroccan and South Indian (Hindostani) type 2 diabetes patients.
Study design: Waiting list controlled design. Aftre informed consent the patients are randomly assigned to either the intervention group or the waiting list (control) group. All patients receive usual care.
Study population: All Turkish, south Asian and Moroccan type 2 diabetes patients of 18 years or older and registerd in the diabetes centre are eligible. Excluded will be patients who, according to the physician, are too ill to follow the program.
Intervention. Patients from the intervention group receive six educational group sessions given by bicultural health educators. The health educators will make use of a diabetes education manual developed by the public health service Rotterdam for the education of Turkish type 2 diabetes patients. Apart from the group education, the health educators will counsel the diabetes patients during the course of the study.
Main study parameters/endpoints: The main effect parameter is change in HbA1c in favour of the intervention group.
Secundary study parameters are: diabetes related knowledge,
Reported behaviour of following diabetes related advices, Behavioural determinants (attitude, self efficacy, intention), Blood lipids (total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, trigyceride), Blood pressure, Weight, Waist Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness: All patients are interviewed before and after the study. This will take about for hours of the patientsí time. The frequency of taking a venous blood sample and of the physical examinations is once every 3 three months and does not differ from the frequency in usual care.
The burden for patients from the intervention will be approximately 15 hours of extra education and time for counseling.
