Background & Aims: Diabetes as one of the most common chronic diseases with serious complications can affect the quality of life. Patient education is one of the oldest and best ways to control these complications. Traditional and modern teaching methods have shown different results on the quality of life of these patients. This study aimed to compare the effect of self-empowerment through training package and workshop programs on the quality of life of diabetic patients referring to diabetes clinics, Urmia University of Medical Sciences in 2013

Materials & Methods: This study is an experimental study with pretest - posttest design that has been carried out on 40 diabetic patients referred to diabetes clinic of Urmia University of Medical Sciences. The samples were randomly divided into two groups of workshop and training. In order to collect data a questionnaire with two parts of demographic and quality of life of diabetic patients were used. After collecting the data, they were coded and analyzed with statistical software SPSS (ver16) using chi-square, Mann-Whitney and Wilcoxon tests.

Results: Quality of life score were 40.25±7.69, 46.00±7, and 39.9±9.00, 48.5±5.56 in the intervention group with training workshop, and in the intervention group with educational package, respectively. The findings didn’t show statistically significant differences in quality of life scores between the two groups before and after intervention (P =0.057). But a significant difference was found in any of the groups in quality of life scores (P <0.0001) before and after the intervention (within the group).

Conclusion: The study showed that indirect education methods like the use of educational training packages as well as the direct method such as training workshops can increase and improve the quality of life in patients, and it can be used in cases where there is no possibility of holding workshops for patients with diabetes as an effective educational method to improve the quality of life of diabetic patients.
