  • 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 veteransí 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.

  • Dizztinct - Dizziness Treatment for Patients

    New

    PI: Kevin A. Kerber, MD

    Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common peripheral vestibular disorder and causes disabling symptoms. BPPV produces a sensation of spinning called vertigo that is both paroxysmal and positional, meaning it occurs suddenly and with a change in head position. The disorder stems from free-floating particles that enter a semi-circular canal ("canaliths") of the inner ear. BPPV is diagnosed using a simple and reliable positional test, the Dix-Hallpike test (DHT). The treatment, the Canalith Repositioning Maneuver (CRM), is performed in minutes at the bedside. With these processes, patients can be readily identified and treated at the bedside, quickly and without expensive tests. Yet, these guideline-supported evidence-based practices are substantially underutilized. This project aims to implement these processes in a real world care setting, through a multi-faceted implementation strategy. The project has the potential to simultaneously improve patient outcomes and healthcare efficiencies. (08/01/2013 - 07/31/2017)

  • Families Improving Together (FIT) For Weight Loss

    PI: Dawn K. Wilson, PhD

    The increasing rate of obesity has become a major public health concern in the United States. Recent reports indicate that 40% of African American adolescents are considered overweight or obese. Although effective lifestyle approaches for weight loss have been demonstrated in Caucasian youth, little is known about effective weight loss interventions in ethnic minority adolescents. In part, this is because research has shown that ethnic minorities attend fewer intervention sessions, have higher attrition rates and lose less weight compared to Caucasians. Two fundamental problems related to this lack of progress are addressed in this proposal and include 1) the lack of appropriate content of weight loss interventions for African American adolescents that integrate cultural issues, parenting skills, and motivational strategies for increasing long-term change and, 2) the poor dose of weight loss interventions because of participant fatigue, drop out and barriers faced by underserved families. The goal of this project is to conduct a randomized controlled efficacy trial to address the problems with past intervention studies by 1) making the face-to-face group intervention shorter, 2) using an on-line program to compliment the group-based intervention for increasing dose, and by 3) tailoring a motivational and parenting skills program directly to parents' and adolescents' skill levels and cultural background.

  • Advanced Directives Among Patients With Lung Cancer

    PI: Scott D. Halpern, MD, PhD

    The goal of this study is to determine if Advanced Directives (ADs) are completed more frequently when the rationale for doing so is communicated as a means to reducing surrogate decision-making burdens, rather than as a means of promoting patient autonomy. (09/01/2011 - 08/31/2012)

  • GOAL: Girls Only! Activity for Life

    PI: Lorraine Robbins, PhD, RN, FNP-BC

    This school-based program encourages moderate to vigorous physical activity among middle school girls. During the 17 week intervention period, girls meet with the school nurse for 2 motivational interviewing-based sessions, attend a daily exercise 'club' after school, and receive a tailored program delivered on iPads.

  • FOCUS Triage

    PI: Laurel L. Northouse, PhD, RN, FAAN

    Focus Triage tests if family dyads randomly assigned to either a brief or extensive family-based program of care (FOCUS Program) have better patient and caregiver outcomes than dyads randomly assigned to usual care. Outcomes being studied: appraisal factors (i.e., appraisal of illness/caregiving, uncertainty, hopelessness), coping resources (coping strategies, interpersonal relationships, self-efficacy), and quality of life domains (emotional, social, physical, and functional).This study also examines if patientsí risk for distress and other factors moderate the effect of the brief or extensive program on outcomes.
