English Diabetes Self-Management Program
We propose a diabetes self-management program evaluation and dissemination project with three components. 1. A six-month randomized trial to evaluate the effect of a community-based small group Diabetes Self Management Program (DSMP) on the health related quality of life, metabolic control and health care utilization of people with type 2 diabetes. 2. A long-term (12 month) longitudinal evaluation of the same program. 3. Two 5 day workshops to train others in California in how to lead and administer the program.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
