[Social inequalities, chronic diseases and therapeutic patient education].

Abstract

A study was carried out of patients with type 2 diabetes following a hospital therapeutic education programme. The results show that the transfer of self-management and adaptation competencies must take into consideration patients' social differentiation. They bring into question the assumption of the individual's autonomy. In this context, the professional position of the caregivers is essential in order to provide patients with the best support possible.
