Abstract [en]

The aims of the present study were to investigate the diabetes nurse specialists (DNS) practice according to the local diabetic guideline, to study the DNSs’ opinion of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and prescription of test-strips, to investigate the patients’ opinions and habits when using SMBG. Users of SMBG (n = 533 patients’) and all DNSs (n = 25) were telephone interviewed. Only a few DNSs used local guidelines, the majority had their own prescribing strategy of SMBG. In conclusion, DNSs were aware of the guidelines but did not use them to support their decision regarding the reasons for prescribing SMBG or not. For diabetes patients, reassurance was the most important issue in having access to SMBG, despite the fact that one-third retested but did not change their behaviour and nearly 15% contacted their DNS for advice.
