A review of volunteer-based peer support interventions in diabetes

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Peer support has become increasingly recognized as a viable and promising model for long-term diabetes self-management. Although there have been several reviews of peer support studies in diabetes, to date, there has been no review that has focused exclusively on interventions involving volunteer peer supporters. This article reviews volunteer-based peer support interventions and examines the implementation strategies and diabetes-related health outcomes associated with them.
