Open Access Study of Diabetes Online Communities Now Available

Over the last year, I’ve been working with a stellar team of researchers, clinicians, and community members on a scoping review of studies looking at diabetes online communities (DOCs). This basically means that we did a super intense search of research articles that already existed that talked about or examined diabetes online communities.

Our initial search landed over 14k articles and we systematically narrowed that number down using a set of search criteria. We were trying to understand more holistically what is known about DOCs.

This paper is a result of that objective and we learned a lot.

Here is the link.

When you follow it, there will be a blue box that says “Download PDF”. It will bring you to a login page, but you do not have to log in, it should start downloading on it’s own. Thanks to the American Association of Diabetes Education, this article has become open access!

For the good meaty pieces, skip down to the results and discussion sections. In an upcoming blog post I will also break down some of the cool findings. For now, enjoy a good read. once the dissertation data collection has simmered down a bit I will post more. Stay tuned.
