ABSTRACT
Objectives: To evaluate the impact of a user-informed psycho-educational programme for people with type 1 diabetes. Methods: Qualitative data derived from repeated interviews and diaries enabled an appraisal of participants' unique, individual experiences. Results: Thematic analysis elicited a number of themes from each type of data (interview and diaries) which bore similarities in their representation of a process whereby change was desired, solutions were found to bring about that change, and then the process was planned or embarked upon. Discussion: The acquisition of trustworthy information and a repertoire of coping skills accompanied by regular contact with other people with type 1 diabetes meant that participants achieved an increased sense of control in their lives and were empowered to change.
