Imagine to Remember: Improving Medication Adherence in Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes

2019-11-14 17:39:51 | BioPortfolio


Determine if a 6-week intervention consisting of future-thinking improves different facets of memory/executive function and/or decision-making.


This aim of this study is to determine if a cognitive intervention is an efficacious method for improving medication adherence in adults with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Participants in this study will complete assessment sessions, as well as intervention sessions over a 3-month period. During this time, medication adherence will be monitored using a MEMS cap. We hypothesize that, following the cognitive intervention, we will see improvements in participants' medication adherence, as well as in facets of memory.
