The effect of computer-based education on attitude towards marriage in single people with type 1 Diabetes
Introduction: The attitude of people with type 1 diabetes may be affected by the disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of computer-based education on attitude towards marriage in single girls and boys with type 1 diabetes. Method: This quasi-experimental study was performed on 100 single individuals who had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes for at least one year and were attending the Iranian Diabetes Association centers. Samples were divided into intervention and control groups. The intervention in this study included an educational CD to promote the attitude of people with type 1 diabetes towards marriage. The data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire that contained questions about personal characteristics of the participants and their attitude toward marriage that was completed by both groups once before the intervention and once eight weeks after the intervention. The maximum score of attitude was 125 and the minimum score was 25. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, including Chi-Square, T-test, Paired T-test, Fisher, and covariance tests. Result: The mean score of attitude in the intervention group after the training (105.42 ± 6.28) was higher than before the training (78.24 ± 15.66), (p <0.001). But in the control group, the mean score of attitude after the study (80.22 ± 8.26) was lower than before (85.26 ± 10.08), (p <0.001). Moreover, before the study, the score of attitude in the control group was higher than the intervention group (p = 0.009), but after the study, the score of attitude in the intervention group was higher than the control group (p <0.001). Conclusion: Computer-based education significantly improved the attitude of people with type 1 diabetes towards marriage. The use of this educational method is recommended to improve the attitude of diabetic patients towards marriage.
