Other information
Abstract1. The level of adoption of the Hong Kong Reference Framework for Diabetes Care was high among primary care physicians who responded to the survey.
2. Improvements should be made in the patient version to enhance patient knowledge on diabetes and promote self-management.
3. Insufficient resources, time, and support, as well as perceived influence on clinical autonomy and patient selection of services were major barriers among primary care physicians to adopt the framework.
4. Additional user-friendly versions of the reference framework should be provided.
5. Strengthening of healthcare provision and financing as well as continuing professional education are needed to improve cooperation among stakeholders in delivering high-quality, patient-centred, multidisciplinary diabetes care.
