Abstract: The Patient Activation Measure (PAM®) survey is a validated tool used to assess a patient’s level of engagement. It uses a 4-point Likert scale to assess patient activation levels. The objectives of this study were to 1) establish a baseline measure of activation using the PAM® amongst people living with HIV to help inform future self-management frameworks, and 2) compare PAM® scores between people living with HIV and with diabetes mellitus (DM). DM is a chronic disease for which self-management been extensively studied and reported on in the literature, and will provide a strong basis for comparison. To our knowledge, this is the first study comparing PAM® survey scores across chronic conditions.
