Impact of family‐centered tailoring of pediatric diabetes self‐management resources

Impact of family‐centered tailoring of pediatric diabetes self‐management resources

Behavioral interventions to improve self‐management, glycemic control, or quality of life (QOL) for children with type 1 diabetes have small to moderate positive effects, but a host of challenges diminishes their effectiveness in practice. A group of authors including HIP Investigator, Dr. Elizabeth Cox evaluated the hypothesis that delivering self‐management resources in a family‐centered manner, using PRISM to guide resource selection, will result in better glycemic control and quality of life for children and their parents.

Authors found that tailored self‐management resources may improve outcomes among specific populations, suggesting the need to consider families' self‐management barriers and patient characteristics before implementing self‐management resources.
