Defy Diabetes Survey Instruments By: University of Michigan Priority Areas: Improving Diabetes Prevention Date: August 2014 Type: Resources, Other
In 2008, the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) invested in a 5-year, $35 million Diabetes Campaign, with a focus on improving clinical care and patient outcomes; mobilizing communities to prevent diabetes and support diabetes self-management; and promoting policies that sustain comprehensive and effective care for people with diabetes. During the Campaign, NYSHealth awarded three grants to the Institute for Leadership (IFL) to support the Campaign’s Faith Fights Diabetes initiative; IFL led a three-year plan to build the capacity of faith-based organizations to deliver a diabetes management and prevention program, Defy Diabetes, in places of worship across New York State. To assess the program’s impact on participants' health status, as well as diabetes-related behavioral and psychosocial outcomes, NYSHealth awarded a grant to the University of Michigan’s Department of Medical Education to develop and validate two survey instruments—one for participants and one for volunteer leaders delivering the program—to assess the effectiveness of the diabetes self-management and prevention program.
