Abstract:

Abstract Purpose: To identify patient reported barriers to diet, exercise and medication adherence in adults who are diabetic patients in a rural Southern Arizona family practice clinic. Data Sources: A cross-sectional, quantitative self-reported survey was conducted. The Environmental Barrier Assessment Scale was the used to collect data at routine office visits. Conclusions: Patients consistently identified problems with health as a barrier to diet, exercise and medication adherence in diabetes. Further discussion with patients is warranted to assist patients and providers to understand what problems are occurring and what the solution may be to help overcome these barriers. Implications for Practice: Identification of barriers of a specific population can assist providers with better management of care.
