ABSTRACT
The article informs that interventions targeting patient behavior seem to have better results than those targeting clinician behavior in the patients with diabetes. Healthcare professionals in some practices have made efforts to redesign their delivery of diabetes care to include effective encounter strategies. Unfortunately, economic incentives exist to make encounters brief, which may hinder a participatory encounter style. It may follow that brief encounters with limited patient participation lead to poor patient outcomes, including preventable diabetes complications and their associated costs in suffering and health care dollars.
