Family Model of Diabetes Self-Management Education in the Marshallese Community

2015-04-27 14:47:14 | BioPortfolio


The investigators will conduct a comparative effectiveness evaluation using a randomized control trial design of the adapted Family Model of Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME), and compare results of the Family Model of DSME with traditional DSME within the Marshallese population. The family model will cover the same concepts as the traditional format. However, the family model will incorporate culturally-adapted education and recommendations aimed at engaging family members in the management of the primary participant's diabetes, and family members will be invited to fully participate in the study. By contrast, the traditional model provides diabetes self- management education to the diabetic participant only, and the participant's family members do not participate in the classes or any other part of the study. Biometric and survey data will be collected pre-intervention, post-intervention, 6 months post-intervention, and 12 months post-intervention. A qualitative debriefing session will be held for each family between the final DSME session and the 6 month post-intervention to obtain qualitative data regarding the participant's perceptions of the intervention and implementation process.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

A strain of Rattus norvegicus which is a model for spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, INSULIN-DEPENDENT).

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
