DHP Research is pleased to announce the launch of the Diabetes Health Profile eBook: Development & Applications April 2013. The Diabetes Health Profile (DHP), first published in 1996 (Meadows et al 1996), is a widely adopted diabetes-specific patient reported outcome (PRO) measure developed to assess the psychological and behavioural outcomes as a result of living with diabetes. The DHP was developed with significant patient and clinical input to represent a model of patient reported outcomes not previously included in other diabetes-specific instruments, such as disordered eating behaviour.
The eBook has been developed to provide potential users of the DHP more detailed information on the key features of the measure including:
- What the DHP measures
- Validity & reliability
- Available translations
- Key references
Sanctioned by the UK Department of Health for their Long Term Condition Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS) Programme following an extensive review by the University of Oxford, the DHP has been administered across a range of settings including clinical trials, academic research and population and community surveys to more than 10.000 people with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, where it has demonstrated sound psychometric properties and operational performance as well as being highly acceptable to patients.
Available in nearly 30 languages, use of the DHP is supported by a comprehensive user manual and a norm-referenced data set together with information on the minimal important difference (MID). Work is also being conducted to provide a simple and easy to read data visualisation dashboard providing scores by age, treatment and sex.
