Abstract

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has associations with an unhealthy lifestyle. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a Sudanese culture-sensitive family nursing model on improving family behavior in controlling blood sugar in elderly patients with diabetes. This study used a quasi-experimental design, involving 57 respondents in the intervention group and 57 respondents in the control group of families containing elderly members with diabetes. Samples were taken by multistage cluster sampling, and univariate, bivariate, multivariate statistical analysis was applied. The results showed an increase in mean family behavior and a decrease in mean blood sugar levels after the intervention model, with p-value = 0.000. Sundanese culture-sensitive family nursing models can improve family behavior in controlling blood sugar in elderly patients with diabetes and it is recommended as a pattern of a culture-based approach in the treatment of the elderly with diabetes.
