Aim: The study aimed to assess the dissatisfaction of people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with the care that they received at a diabetes outpatient clinic in Ningbo, China and to determine the associated factors.
Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 406 adults with T2DM in 2020–21. Those who were treated at the diabetes outpatient clinic for at least six consecutive months prior to the survey date were eligible. The Short Assessment of Patient Satisfaction (SAPS) was used to assess participants’ dissatisfaction with the care that they received.
Results: 25.1% of participants were not satisfied with the care that they received at the diabetes outpatient clinic in Ningbo. The odds of dissatisfaction were higher in physically active people compared to those who were not (OR 3.41, 95% CI 1.56 to 7.45) and those with ＞1-5 years of T2DM compared to ≤1 year (2.18, 1.05 to 4.53).
Conclusion: A quarter of people with T2DM were dissatisfied with the care that they received at the diabetes outpatient clinic in Ningbo, China, and the factors associated with dissatisfaction were identified.
