The primary aim of this pilot study is to provide cross-cultural and detailed insights into how psychological and social factors impact on younger people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and self-management skille (20-40 years). The specific objectives are to: identify self-management strategies used by younger people with T2DM during life transitions in the period from 20-40 years of age; investigate participants' perception of self-management to identify the specific needs of younger people with T2DM. This research will provide health professionals with insights to the specific needs for young adults with T2DM and will add ground breaking innovative information by investigating cultural comparison between Australia and Denmark.
