AbstractThis paper presents and evaluation of the use of a developed on line guided Self-Determination (GSD) solution for young adults with Type 1 diabetes. Activity theory is proffered as a suitable analysis lens to highlight and unpack key social interactions. An exploratory descriptive design with four stages that involved: (1) developing the GSD program online; (2) training diabetes educators to use the GSD program in an online format; (3) implementing and pilot testing the GSD program; and (d) evaluating the online version formed the adopted methodology.
