BORBA, Anna Karla de Oliveira Tito; MARQUES, Ana Paula de Oliveira; LEAL, Márcia Carréra Campos  and  RAMOS, Roberta Souza Pereira da Silva. Educational practices for diabetes Mellitus: integrative literature review. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp.169-176. ISSN 1983-1447.

This is an integrative literature review which aims to identify the multi-professional scientific production on educational practices for individuals with diabetes available in the databases: Latin American Literature in Health Sciences (Literatura Latino Americana em Ciências da Saúde - LILACS), Medical Literature and Retrieval System online (Medline), Spanish Bibliographical Index in Health Sciences (Índice Bibliográfico Español en Ciencias de la Salud - Ibecs) and the Database on Nursing (Base de Dados em Enfermagem - BDENF), from 1999 to 2009. Results show that educational practices are developed mainly for adults and seniors up to 80 years of age, and involve themes that reflect the daily life of living with diabetes. These practices are spread mainly through groups, bringing benefits not only for the individual with diabetes but also for the healthcare professional. Thus, we can see the process of changing the traditional education paradigm to a problembased, dialogical education, with a view for promoting health.
