Abstract

Patients’ illness beliefs have been associated with glycaemic control in diabetes and survival in other conditions and understanding patient beliefs – how they make sense of their diabetes and how they manage the condition – helps healthcare professionals to provide the best care possible. In this article, the authors examine whether the illness beliefs of people with diabetes and foot ulceration independently predict mortality.
