This survey study aimed to study core competency for prevention and control of diabetes
and the relationship between related-factors and the core competency for prevention and
control of diabetes, including the core competencies of academic preparedness, feeling of
empowerment, and possessing the necessary skills, of health officers in the health service

questionnaires with a reliability at 0.9529, and analyzed by statistics including percentages,
means, standard deviations (S.D.), paired t-tests, and one-way ANOVA at the statistical
significance of 95%.
The results revealed that 14.6% of the health officers have on overview of the core
competency at a high level, 46.0% at a medium level, and 39.4% at a low level. Variables

work place, position, relationship with the head of the health officers, and responsible work
load, with a reliability of 95%. The results reflected that the core competency for prevention
and control of diabetes of the health officers was not complete and health service

competency, especially for enhancing working knowledge about chronic disease, programs,
and processes of knowledge management which can improve the conforming circumstances
