You are invited to take part in a research study, Evaluating a Diabetes Specific Online CBT Intervention
Ieso Digital Health IS running a study to evaluate an online, diabetes specific, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) intervention for people with Type 2 diabetes.
You are free to decide whether or not to take part in this study; if you decide to participate you may change your mind at any time.
Overview: There is a strong evidence base that supports the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for patients with a diagnosis of diabetes (type 1 and type 2) who also suffer from a common mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression. Both anxiety and depression can have a significant impact on an individual’s ability to manage their diabetes and therefore successful treatment of these common mental health conditions can positively affect a person’s physical and mental health.
CBT is traditionally delivered face-to-face but currently there are not enough therapists to provide treatment for all the people who would benefit from it. One method of delivering CBT via an online therapist. Around 20,000 NHS patients have already had CBT using this online method and we know that people are just as likely to get better using online CBT as they are using face-to face methods. This study will help us understand whether online methods of delivering CBT help people who have Type 2 diabetes and anxiety or depression.
Anyone, over the age of 18 who has had Type 2 diabetes, for 12 months or more, and has also experienced any symptoms of low mood or anxiety is invited to participate in this study.
