These patients were assigned to two groups of 90 through simple random sampling: the case group and the control group. Only the case group were trained through electronic method for 3 months. The information about the patients’ self-care behaviors were collected in both pre-intervention and post-intervention phases using the standard diabetes self-care questionnaire and the data were analyzed using SPSS as well as descriptive tests (Frequency, Percentage, Mean, Standard Deviation) and analytic statistical tests (Chi-Square and Paired T-test).
Results: The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean self-care scores acquired before and 3 months after the educational intervention (0/001< P). The mean self-care score acquired 3 months after the educational intervention increased in the case group, in as much as it had statistically significant difference (0/001< P). The mean self-care score acquired 3 months after the educational intervention decreased in the control group, so that it had statistically significant difference in a reverse order (0/001> P).
