Objective To assess the effect of a participatory group-based education programme for individuals with type 2 diabetes, Next Education. Method In a quasi-experimental study, individuals with type 2 diabetes were recruited from 14 Danish municipalities with a patient education programme. Eight municipalities using Next Education were intervention sites; six control sites used usual group-based education programmes. Data were collected through questionnaires at baseline and at 3 and 12 months after programmes ended. Changes in quality of life (EQ-5D-5L), diabetes-related emotional distress (PAID-5), physical activity, diet, foot care and sense of coherence (SOC-13) were assessed in generalised linear mixed models. Results At baseline, 310 participants (52.6% females, mean age 62.5 years [SD = 10.7] and a mean duration of type 2 diabetes of 6.9 years [SD = 8.4]) participated in Next Education ( n = 234) or group-based education ( n = 76) at control sites. Compared with participants at control sites, participants at intervention sites had significantly larger sense of coherence scores at 3 (9.4%, p = 0.03) and 12 (9.8%, p = 0.02) months of follow-up. Other measures did not differ significantly between groups. Discussion It is likely that person-centeredness and high degrees of user participation at the intervention sites improved sense of coherence among Danes with type 2 diabetes.
