The purpose of this study is to determine whether it is possible to improve health outcomes for patients with Type II diabetes, a community-based health care agency will offer care coordination to half of a study group in a family practice office. The intervention will include assessing patients' status using two instruments:
a depression screen (the PHQ9) and a motivation to change scale (the Patient Activation Measure, PAM). A masters-level social worker will counsel patients in the intervention group. Changes in patients' health status, PHQ9 scores and PAM scores over one year will be measured. Outcomes will be compared between the study group and the group without intervention.

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.

It also, when used in connection with managed care, covers all the activities of evaluating the patient, planning treatment, referral, and follow-up so that care is continuous and comprehensive and payment for the care is obtained.
