The aim of PEEPS™ is to utilize internet-based DSMES to overcome the barriers of distance, limited access, and a limited supply of diabetes educators in addressing an overwhelming public health problem.
Diabetes self-management education and support is the cornerstone of the management of diabetes, and the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) provided their framework of seven self-care behaviors (Austin et al., 2015) as an evidence-based guide for person-centered DSMES and care.
The seven behaviors are Healthy Eating, Being Active, Monitoring, Taking Medications, Healthy Coping, Reducing Risks, and Problem-Solving.
These seven behaviors are fundamental in teaching participants how to reduce the modifiable risk factors for diabetes, self-management techniques to reduce the risks for diabetes-related complications, and the knowledge required to support their family members and friends living with diabetes.
