  • Technologically Enhanced Coaching (TEC): A Program for Improving Diabetes Outcomes

    New

    PI: M. E. Michele Heisler, MD, MPA

    Peer mentoring and support models have been found in two recent VA RCTs to be more effective than usual care, financial incentives, and usual nurse care management to improve glycemic control in high-risk veteran patients with poor glycemic control. While peer supporters and coaches can be trained in effective behavioral approaches to support other veterans’ self-management behaviors, such supporters necessarily lack content expertise to help veterans better share in treatment decisions and goal-setting with their health care providers. Accordingly, in an AHRQ-supported RCT we developed and tested tailored, interactive tools with diabetes and medication information embedded in the tool software that peer coaches and other outreach workers can employ to facilitate discussions with patients. Such tools could enhance the sustainability and effectiveness of coaching programs to better prepare patients to set self-management goals, action plans, and to discuss treatment options with their health care providers.

  • iDECIDE for Ann Arbor and Detroit VAs

    PI: Angela Fagerlin, PhD

    Successful diabetes management is dependent on the patient - provider partnership. However, a full discussion of potential benefits, harms, costs, and burdens associated with each medication option is often too much for a brief clinic visit. This project uses AHRQ-developed consumer guides as inspiration for a tailored program that assists with this decision-making. The current iDECIDE intervention serves as the base of the program, with updates geared toward making it more specific to veterans. (01/01/2012 - 09/30/2012)

    Successful diabetes management is dependent on the patient - provider partnership. However, a full discussion of potential benefits, harms, costs, and burdens associated with each medication option is often too much for a brief clinic visit. This project uses AHRQ-developed consumer guides as inspiration for a tailored program that assists with this decision-making. The intervention is delivered on iPads by Community Health Workers in participant homes and is available in both English and Spanish. (09/30/2010 - 09/29/2013)

  • Diabetes Self-Management for Mexican Americans

    PI: Rachel E. Davis, PhD, MPH

    This feasibility study explores audience segment characteristics among Mexican Americans with type 2 diabetes ranging from low to high on acculturation and structural assimilation. Particular attention is devoted to examining associations between diabetes-related behaviors and beliefs and acculturation/structural assimilation that have been previously suggested through qualitative research.

  • Stepping Up to Health - Expanding the Reach

    PI: Caroline R. Richardson, MD

    The goal of this project is to expand the web-based Stepping Up to Health intervention to more individuals. The original intervention used enhanced pedometers and email-based tailored feedback to promote physical activity in people with type 2 diabetes. Expanding the Reach extends the tailored messages to promote physical activity to sedentary adults who are at risk for developing cancer, heart disease or diabetes, along with continuing to provide tailored messages for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
