Aim: The purpose of this paper is to present the conceptual framework that was used to guide a study on the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Background: The Stress and Coping Framework for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus was developed in response to a review of the literature that suggests psychological stress, or simply distress, can contribute toward the development of T2DM with the established risk factors of genetic risk for diabetes (GRD), obesity, and advancing age. The literature shows that distress can influence insulin sensitivity and contribute to the development of T2DM; however, much of the literature fails to acknowledge the influence of distress in collaboration with GRD, obesity, and advancing age.

Aim This study examines communication preferences of chronic pain patients including types of questions asked and information received to allow a holistic portrayal of the experience of living with chronic pain.
