Background: This study is to determine the effect of the family-centered intervention (FCIS) on the key indicators of diabetes management and Control control in patients with type-2 diabetes. Method: The present study is a quiz- experimental study with a randomized control group. Participants were 64 patients with type-2 diabetes visiting Ali Asghar Hospital of Isfahan in 2018. The eligible patients were assigned to either the intervention group or the control group (i.e., patient-center care) through block randomization. FCIS were implemented in 4 two-hour sessions as home visits while the patients and their caregivers were present. Data were collected twice-i.e. before the intervention and 12 weeks after it- and were analyzed, by running a t-test (α = 0.05), using SPSS-21. Results: The mean ± SD age of participants was 50.4 ± 8.5. There was no significant difference between the two groups in the mean weight, serum levels of FBS and A1C, physical activity, energy intake, and BMI before intervention. But, a significant improvement in the mean values of these variables in the intervention group after the intervention, compared with the control group was indicated (P < 0.05). Conclusions: This study suggests that FCIS are more effective than patient-center care in the management and control of type-2 diabetes. Therefore, it is recommended that the family be considered in educational interventions.
