Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 is a chronic metabolic disease that has the potential for serious health consequences which include both psychological and physical conditions. Effective management of this disease is important to prevent the development of these problems. No previous studies have systematically examined the ways in which psychological functioning, patient-provider relationships, family and social support, health insurance availability and utilization, lifestyle practices, and community support influence diabetes self-management among African American patients. Most diabetes management information is based on research conducted primarily with Caucasian patients. The Division of Diabetes Translation within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to conduct a pilot study of a longitudinal, family-centered research project to determine optimal ways of teaching African American patients and their families how to work together to manage diabetes successfully.

The research will involve samples of 40-to 64-year-old African American men and women with Type 2 diabetes and their close family members. Participating families will be divided into two groups, an intervention group that will receive the intervention at the beginning of the study, and a comparison group that will receive a modified version at the end. Measurements of self-care adherence and diabetes control will include both self-reports and objective measures such as blood glucose levels obtained through clinical lab work. Other data will include diabetes knowledge, community characteristics, social support, community support, psychological functioning, patient-provider relationships, and health care coverage. Participant involvement will occur over a 13 month period.

CDC is requesting a three year approval for this data collection. The estimated annualized burden is 1,433 hours. The total burden over the course of this data collection is 4,300 hours.
