dc.description.abstract Previous research has demonstrated that those who perceive they have high perceptions of control generally have better health outcomes, including diabetes. The purpose of this research was to gain a better understanding of factors associated with perceived control in a Manitoba First Nations community. Data were collected using questionnaires in a community-based participatory research study between June 2011 and February 2012. Logistic regression was utilized to determine factors associated with perceived control over diabetes prevention and the prevention of diabetic complications. Many participants reported they had little or no control over the prevention of diabetes (47.8%) or diabetes complications (42.0%). Factors associated with high perceived control over diabetes prevention included having dyslipidemia, reporting hearing gossip about yourself and experiencing racism. Factors associated with high perceived controllability of preventing complications included having ≥ grade ten education, having dyslipidemia, reporting high chronic stress, and high perceived negative impact from residential school. en_US
