Objective: Resilience is the personal ability to adapt successfully with unpleasant situations and maintain or regain bio-psychological well-being. Resilience could be promoted through Self-management educational programs. In this study, we tried to investigate if self-management education could improve resilience in diabetic patients.

Materials and Methods: The current study was a semi experimental trial. All patients were diagnosed with diabetes type 2. Intervention was the self-management education program. Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS), post prandial (2hpp) and resilience score were evaluated at the beginning and at the end of the study. T-test and Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) were used for comparison between two groups.

Results: Although two groups had no significant difference in FBS, 2hpp and resilience score mean values initially, significant decreases occurred in all variables in intervention group in comparison the control group at the end of the study (P-value:0.005; <0.001 and 0.006 respectively). The results of ANCOVA analysis showed that post-test resilience score in intervention group was significantly higher than control group (P-value:<0.001).

Conclusion: self-management education can effectively improve resilience in diabetic patients.
