Abstract

Design: A cross-sectional study Materials and Methods: A total of 176 members of diabetes care teams participated in this study. Their sociodemographic data, knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) regarding the management of type 2 diabetes and their use of the related CPG were gathered from a validated questionnaire. Results: The median age of the subjects was 36 years old (IQR = 16) and the median duration of service was eleven years (IQR = 17). Majority of them were females (60.8%) and Malays (95.5%). Their mean percentage of total knowledge score was 78.7% (SD = 11.4%), the median total percentage of attitude score was 82.9% (IQR = 22.9%) and the median percentage of total practice score was 90% (IQR = 13.3%). Majority of them claimed always doing diabetes screening on patients with risk factors (64.0%), always giving diet education (72.4%) and stop smoking advice to patients (83.1%), always doing yearly foot examination (70.8%) and completing patients’ green diabetic card on every visit (81.9%). However, less percentage of subjects claimed always ensuring yearly fundoscopy (40.4%) or referral to ophthalmologist (54.8%), always doing HbA1c test twice yearly (57.1%) or doing ECG on newly diagnosed patients (45.0%).
