Abstract

The Diabetes Impact Management Scales (DIMS) is an easily administered questionnaire with internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Preliminary correlative analyses support the validity of the instrument as a measure of health status in adult type I and type II diabetic patients. Further work will be necessary to firmly establish the validity of the DIMS and its usefulness in clinical outcomes research.
