Brief Summary:
The proposed project will use community based participatory research to adapt an existing diabetes self-management and education intervention with a telehealth intervention to be culturally relevant for rural English- and Spanish-speaking populations. Participants and care partners will receive a one-time, 8-hour telehealth intervention from a multidisciplinary team specializing in diabetes. The overarching aim of this study is to provide a sustainable model to provide diabetes specialty care to rural populations.

Diabete Mellitus Behavioral: Rural Diabetes One-Day Education and Care program (R-D1D) Behavioral: Diabetes Education Materials Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Diabetes prevalence is higher in rural areas that have lower resources to diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES), a cornerstone to optimal diabetes management. A time efficient DSMES program delivered via telehealth by multidisciplinary experts that also encourages care partner and peer support is a creative solution to increasing access to DSMES and reducing disparities. This study is guided by the Research, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance (RE-AIM) framework. English and Spanish-speaking participants and care partners will receive a one-time, 8-hour telehealth intervention at the rural clinic where they receive their usual care, from the multidisciplinary team. The rural clinical practices will provide feedback in two rounds, with iterative practice-level changes, to address process and/or workflow issues. Our overall objective is to adapt, implement, refine, and evaluate a time efficient DSMES program delivered via telehealth by a team of multidisciplinary experts that encourages care partner and peer support to improve A1C and diabetes self-management in rural communities to reduce disparities. Our multidisciplinary team includes researchers and clinical healthcare providers with experience in diabetes care, DSMES delivery, community-engaged research, practice-based research, and rural health issues. The University of Utah and High Plains Research Network provide a strong environment for this particular study. The proposed study will 1) adapt the exiting Diabetes One-Day Program (D1D) for use in rural communities (Rural Diabetes One-Day Program or R-D1D), 2) conduct a patient-level pilot RCT to examine effects of R-D1D (intervention group) versus standard patient education (attention control group), guided by the RE-AIM framework. Our ultimate goal is to reduce health disparities in rural populations by increasing access to diabetes specialty care using telehealth. Preliminary data support the D1D intervention, but will require adaptation to translate for rural populations, then iterative refinement at the practice level to support long-term maintenance. Such a tested, accepted intervention should have a beneficial effect on diabetes self-management across multiple rural locations.
