Effectively Enhancing Health Resilience in Adolescents

with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: An Integrative Literature Review

Shelbi Steele, MS

Faculty Sponsor: Elizabeth Hartman, PhD, RN

Background: Several studies suggest that adolescence is a particularly difficult time for diabetes management because of the drive for independence, the search for acceptance and the complexity of the disease. Lack of health management increases the risk for diabetes – related complications in adulthood.

Objectives: To explore what research has been conducted regarding factors that enhance resilience among adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus and to recommend incorporation of these factors within direct nursing care to improve self – management and prevent adverse health outcomes within this population.

Methods: This integrative literature review was conducted using keywords “adolescence, adolescent, diabetes mellitus type 1, insulin dependent, resilience, outcomes, health outcomes, diabetes” to search the literature between 2008 and 2018. Articles were in English and the databases searched included PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Health Literature (CINAHL) and Academic Search Complete. A total of seven articles were used for this literature review.

Results: Three contributing factors associated with health resilience among adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus were discovered in the literature. These include coping strategies, positive affect and self – efficacy.

Conclusions: This study found the significant impact that coping strategies, positive affect and self – efficacy have on promoting resilience in adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Integrating measures within nursing practice that focus on promoting these factors could improve self – management of this complex disease and further improve health outcomes.

Key words: Adolescence, adolescent, diabetes mellitus type 1, insulin dependent, resilience, outcomes, health outcomes, diabetes.
