Abstract

Diabetes Mellitius is a major chronic disease with multi-organ involvement and high-cost implications. Although it has been demonstrated that structured education can control the risk of developing these complications, there is a substantial room for improvement in the educational services for these patients. E-learning can be a good solution to fill this gap. A system dynamics model was developed in this study to highlight the potential return on investment in these systems.
