The overarching goal of this proposal is to test the efficacy of a multi-component, high intensity intervention, technology delivered, diabetes-modified behavioral activation treatment (TECH DM-BAT) that incorporates: 1) diabetes education; 2) home telemonitoring; and 3) diabetes modified behavioral activation, delivered by nurses via smartphones is effective in improving metabolic control in African Americans with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes Mellitus is highly prevalent in the United States (CDC 2014) and African Americans (AA) are disproportionately affected and have higher prevalence, poorer metabolic control and greater risk for complications and death compared to White Americans. Evidence from the literature show that effective interventions for AAs with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) have multiple components including: education and skills training, nurse case management, and maintain high intensity. However, few large Randomized Clinical Trials (RCT) have tested multi-component interventions that include these key components in AAs with T2DM.
Behavioral Activation is a psychotherapeutic process whereby patients are encouraged to identify and schedule structured and enjoyable activities for behavior change that are likely to improve outcomes such as mood, behaviors and quality of life. A brief manualized behavioral activation treatment for depression (BATD), has been modified for diabetes.
This study tests a multi-component, high intensity intervention that incorporates several strategies that have been shown to be effective in improving diabetes outcomes in AAs. Nurse case managers will use videoconferencing technology to deliver education, skills training and problem solving for diabetes via smartphones, an approach that has not been used previously in vulnerable and underserved ethnic minority populations.

Molecules that contain multiple active sites which are used to catalyze more than one enzymatic reaction. Proteins in this class generally contain multiple active sites within a single peptide chain and may also contain more than one enzymatically active subunit. They are distinguished from MULTIENZYME COMPLEXES in that their subunits are not found as distinct enzymes.
An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)
9,10-Secoergosta-5,7,10(19),22-tetraene-3,25-diol. Biologically active metabolite of vitamin D2 which is more active in curing rickets than its parent. The compound is believed to attach to the same receptor as vitamin D2 and 25-hydroxyvitamin D3.
Tailored macromolecules harboring covalently-bound biologically active modules that target specific tissues and cells. The active modules or functional groups can include drugs, prodrugs, antibodies, and oligonucleotides, which can act synergistically and be multitargeting.
Active immunization where vaccine is administered for therapeutic or preventive purposes. This can include administration of immunopotentiating agents such as BCG vaccine and Corynebacterium parvum as well as biological response modifiers such as interferons, interleukins, and colony-stimulating factors in order to directly stimulate the immune system.
