The article examines if experimental modifications of provider--patient interactions improve patient behaviors and health outcomes in patients with diabetes. Studies were selected if they were randomized controlled trials or quasiexperimental studies of modifications of provider-patient interaction. Patient behaviors, patient biomedical issues, patient functional measures, provider adherence to guidelines, and provider behavior, satisfaction, and attitudes were examined. It was concluded that in patients with diabetes, interventions that focus on modifying patient behavior seem to have better results than those that focus on modifying clinician behavior.
