Using language to empower joint diabetes decision making in the paediatric diabetes clinic

Ali Ashiya , Hurley Catriona , Giwa Sarah , Magennis Loraine

We write about non-compliance with treatment in the medical records rather than barriers to adherence. Similarly we use language in the Diabetes clinic which can disempower the children and families who attend our clinics.<p class="abst...
