The Diabetes Self-Management and Technology Questionnaire (DSMT-Q) is a patient reported measure that has been developed to assess self-management among people living with type 2 diabetes who use web-based and mHealth technologies

The Diabetes Self-Management and Technology Questionnaire (DSMT-Q) is a patient reported measure that has been developed to assess self-management among people living with type 2 diabetes who use web-based and mHealth technologies. The measure is available to use in two versions (web-based and mHealth technologies users and non-users).

The DSMT-Q includes 13 questionnaire items over two sub-scales. Understanding individual health and making informed decisions (7 items) and Confidence to reach and sustain goals (6 items).

The instrument has been tested and validated in accordance with FDA guidelines and best practice.

Due to its focus on the use of technology to aid self-management, the DSMT-Q can be usefully integrated with other measures of self-management or quality of life for people with type 2 diabetes. In our portfolio, for instance, the HASMID, a mixed health related quality of life and self-management instrument, and the DHP, which measures the impact of diabetes 1 and 2 on the behaviour and psychology of patients.
