Stages of change 1.Precontemplation: not thinking about change 2.Contemplation: unsure or ambivalent about change 3.Preparation: ready to initiate change in next four weeks 4.Action: taking steps toward the behavioral goal 5.Maintenance: trying to maintain change over the long term-at least 6 months
Social determinants of health 1.Social gradient: the poorest and most disadvantaged are especially affected. The poorest have the lowest diabetes control. Copays on medications leads to poorer diabetes control. 2.Stress: social and psychological environment impact diabetes control 3.Early life: importance of a good start in life 4.Unemployment: job security and satisfaction. Poor job security impacts diabetes control 5.Work environment: impacts on health and risk of disease. Lack of job control impacts diabetes control 6.Social support: positive role of friendship and social cohesion 7.Social exclusion: impact of social isolation and relative deprivation. Rapid community change can impact decrease social relations thus decreasing diabetes control. 8.Addictions: effects of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs 9.Food: access to reasonably priced nutritious food is a community issue and its lack leads to poorer diabetes control. 10.Transport: better public transport, reducing driving and encouraging healthier means (walking, cycling). Lack of culturally encouraged exercising leads to poorer diabetes control.
