  • Description: PURPOSE:: To elicit the perspective of patients with type 2 diabetes, specific to communication with providers and health care teams. METHODS:: We conducted 21 focus groups with 115 adults in Midwestern primary care, endocrinology, and bariatric surgery clinics. Facilitators analyzed the transcripts using an iterative coding method. RESULTS:: The themes of encouragement and motivation, relationship building, compassion, and communication preferences highlighted effective strategies consistent with the core components of patient-centered care. CONCLUSIONS:: Patients and providers benefit from systems in which patients are efficiently and compassionately supported in self-management within their abilities and in partnership with their support networks.
