Thesis: Psychosocial outcomes in diabetes: the interplay of intra- and interpersonal factors

Promotor(s): prof. M. Hagedoorn, prof. T.P. Links, prof. R. Sanderman

Faculty: Medical Sciences


A chronic illness such as diabetes can have a negative impact on a person’s well-being. However, some individuals will be more negatively affected by the disease than others. This thesis describes how intrapersonal (e.g., regulatory focus and gender) and interpersonal factors (partner support and social comparison) and the interaction between these factors are associated with psychosocial outcomes in patients with diabetes and their partners.
