Abstract

 This study seeks to examine SOCIAL SUPPORT in patients with DIABETES in Yazd and its relationship with SOCIAL CAPITAL. It is a cross-sectional study on 245 diabetic patients who had referred to DIABETES clinics in Yazd. The sample was selected through random convenience sampling. Data were collected using the multidimensional perceived SOCIAL SUPPORT (MSPSS) by Zimet et al (1988) and the SOCIAL CAPITAL questionnaire was developed by the researcher. Data analyses were done using descriptive statistical tests, frequency distribution tables and tests (test t, Pearson correlation coefficient) using SPSS (Version 20). The results showed that SOCIAL SUPPORT in patients with DIABETES was more than average and the SOCIAL CAPITAL index was around average in Yazd. The Pearson correlation coefficient of SOCIAL SUPPORT and SOCIAL CAPITAL dimensions are: SOCIAL TRUST (r=0.218), social norms (r=0.184), social networks (r=0.277) that are statistically significant. The results indicate that there is a significant positive relationship between SOCIAL SUPPORT and SOCIAL CAPITAL dimensions and with an increase in SOCIAL CAPITAL, SOCIAL SUPPORT increases.
