Lifestyle Intervention for Adults With Diabetes

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02699307

Brief Summary:
Physical activity is the cornerstone of good diabetes management, and yet effective physical activity intervention is not available. The investigators developed a lifestyle intervention based on individual's home activity patterns. The goal of the study is to test the efficacy of this intervention among older adults with diabetes. In addition to physical activity, the investigators will also assess if the intervention will improve social participation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Behavioral: Counseling Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

To tailor to the needs of older adults, the investigators developed an innovative lifestyle modification intervention that incorporates rehabilitation approaches to improve the participation of physical activities (PA) among sedentary older adults with type 2 diabetes. The intervention is developed based on well-established health behavior theory (i.e., self-regulation) and the conceptual framework from the World Health Organization, with several innovations not previously investigated in this population. The intervention:

  1. is tailored based on individual's unique patterns of daily PA performed within his/her environment as opposed to the total amount of PA performed in a day or a recall of activities over some time period;
  2. uses an accelerometer-assisted, field-based method to address the individual's unique physical and social environment;
  3. is delivered by a trained occupational therapist in brief counseling sessions, which can be easily translated into real clinical settings; and
  4. addresses participation, a patient-centered outcome that is associated with quality of life but has received limited attention outside of rehabilitation research.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in physical activity: accelerometer counts [ Time Frame: baseline, 18 weeks ]
    Change in physical activity from baseline as measured by having participants wearing an accelerometer on their wrists for one week at home at baseline and then at the end of the study.

  2. Change in physical activity: Community Healthy Activities Model Program for Seniors (CHAMPS) survey [ Time Frame: baseline, 18 weeks ]
    Change in self reported physical activities (Kcal/week) from baseline as measured by participants answering CHAMPS survey questions at baseline and at the end of the study.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in social participation:validated questionnaires from the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) assessment center [ Time Frame: baseline, 18 weeks ]
    Changes in two subdomains of participation - ability to participate and satisfaction with participation, will be assessed by participants answering surveys at the baseline and then at the end of the study.
