The authors of this study identified healthcare provider (HCP) actions that helped patients who were not wishing to start insulin, change their minds to do so. HCP actions that patients deemed the most helpful in making their decisions were:
  • Explaining Insulin Benefits
  • Demonstrating the Injection Process
  • Collaborative Style

The action deemed the least useful was an authoratative style.
