A support network can aid recovery and healing in different ways, said Catherine (Kit) Chesla, an associate professor at UCSF's Department of Family Health Care Nursing.
Her research shows two types of family connectedness play a role in patient health outcomes: organized cohesiveness -- or how well a family functions in terms of workload and tasks -- and emotional cohesiveness.Chesla found diabetic patients who reported highly functional and strong familial relationships had better health outcomes than those who reported weak connections.But she also found patients who had greater emotional closeness faired better than those who had only organizationally strong ties.
"The strongest measure we had of emotional closeness is couples' ability to resolve conflict.We found this to be a very powerful predictor of how people did with their diabetes," Chesla told UPI.
