Abstract

Aims This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of diabetes self-management education (DSME) at the Banjarmasin Health Center in reducing the prevalence of non-ulcer diabetic foot. Materials & Methods This research utilized an experimental design with a nonequivalent control group and employed consecutive sampling. A sample of 230 participants was divided into two groups: 115 respondents in the intervention group and 115 respondents in the control group. The instrument utilized in this research was the Diabetes Self-Care Activities Foot Care Questionnaire. Statistical analyses included the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test and Mann-Whitney Test. Findings The mean incidence of non-ulcer diabetic foot in the intervention group differed from that of the control group both before and after the intervention by 0.009 (p-value=0.069). Further analysis revealed a significant difference (p-value=0.003) in the mean incidence of non-ulcerated diabetic foot following DSME between the intervention and control groups. Conclusion DSME effectively reduces the incidence of non-ulcerated diabetic foot at the Banjarmasin Community Health Center.
