Abstract

Lifestyle counselling is a pivotal aspect of diabetes care. But general practitioners (GPs) often have problems in finding their role in patients' weight management. The aims of this study were to investigate the experiences of type 2 diabetes patients with lifestyle counselling from their GPs and to explore how patients' preferences regarding counselling are embedded in the context of self-management and wider cultural aspects of nutrition.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 June 2014.
All research outputs
#2,125,503
of 4,505,617 outputs
Outputs from BMC Family Practice
#424
of 768 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#47,181
of 108,074 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Family Practice
#39
of 68 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,505,617 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 768 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 108,074 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 68 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
