Featured Toolkit: Problem Recognition in Illness Self-Management (PRISM)
It is estimated that over 190,000 children under age 20 have diagnosed diabetes, and the number of cases has been increasing over time.
Due to the multi-faceted approach that is typically needed to manage diabetes, it is difficult for children and their families to adhere to their diabetes self-management regimens.
The Problem Recognition in Illness Self-Management (PRISM) tool was developed to help clinicians can identify the barriers that youth with type 1 diabetes and their families are facing, and then tailor self-management resources to these needs.
