The philosophy behind the Profile


home

Representing research spanning over 20 years, the Diabetes Health Profile (DHP) is a scientifically robust diabetes-specific patient reported outcome measure (PROM) developed to provide real world insight into the psychological and behavioural impact of living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

The rationale for the development of the DHP was its focus should be:

  • To identify the sub-clinical elements of the psychological and behavioural problems experienced by people who live with diabetes - which often go undetected in a clinical setting but, nevertheless can have a significant impact on wellbeing and management of the disease. 
  • The psychological and behavioural elements of the scale should be empirically derived in combination with a theoretical underpinning.

Licensed by the UK Department of Health for their Patient Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) Programme, the DHP has been completed globally by over 10,000 people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Cognitively simple, taking only a few minutes to complete the DHP is used across a range of national and international settings and applications including, clinical trials, observational studies, population surveys and clinical practice.
