Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The intervention – “Cardiac-Diabetes Self-Management Program incorporating telephone and text-messaging (T-CDSMP)” consists of three face-to-face sessions as well as telephone and text-message follow-up. The face-to-face sessions will be commenced within 48 hours of admission. They will be provided by a trained Research Nurse and be conducted while the patients are in hospitals in either Australia and in Taiwan. Follow up will be once a week by telephone call (at 1 week after discharge home), and by text-messages which will be sent a week after the telephone follow up. The length of intervention is 4 weeks.

Purpose of the study
Educational / counselling / training
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Baseline data collection is blinded and will be undertaken before randomisation. Allocation will be concealed by using sealed, numbered, opaque envelopes; list generation will be provided by researcher off site, after randomisation. Patients are not blinded to ‘intervention’ and surveys do not have group ID, thus data entry is blinded.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Simple randomisation using a randomisation table (computerised sequence generation) will be used.
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)
