Project Overview +

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.

Aims +

Aim: Update current iDECIDE program to make it more appropriate for the VA setting.

Participants +

Veterans in Detroit and Ann Arbor

Intervention +

Conduct focus groups with veterans to determine what changes to make to current iDECIDE program. Review site look and feel and get reactions to new drawings in the animations.

Findings +

This is not a study. Based on focus group feedback, the objective is to update iDECIDE for a veteran audience, for future studies.
