Research Results: AADE7 Self-Care Behaviors

Systematic Reviews of the AADE7 Self-Care Behaviors®

The AADE Research Committee issued a call for systematic literature reviews for each of the AADE7 Self-Care Behaviors®. Authors assessed available research on the development, use and outcomes of the seven behaviors and identified gaps in evidence. The peer-reviewed results of the project were published in The Diabetes Educator journal in the November/December 2007 issue.

In response to the rising burden of diabetes in the United States, and the evolution and advancement of the effective strategies to help patients' modify important self-care behaviors, AADE commissioned systematic reviews addressing AADE's seven self-care behaviors:
