A middle-aged man has difficulty keeping his diabetes under control. He goes to the clinic where a nurse educator suggests he either attend a week-long diabetes education class or schedule an appointment with a diabetes educator after receiving individualized instruction using “Living with Diabetes,�? an interactive computer program. The multimedia program provides information on diabetes management and presents a series of problem-solving simulations (e.g., managing a hypoglycemic reaction, what to do on sick days). Because work and family commitments prevent his attendance at diabetes classes, he decides on the individualized instruction followed by an appointment with the nurse educator.
