Understanding the Community Context of the Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools Project—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion/Division of Diabetes Translation (NCCDPHP/DDT), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description: This study is part of a larger evaluation of the multi-year Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools (DETS) project to develop and pilot test a science based diabetes prevention curriculum for Native American school children. As part of the overall evaluation (before the curriculum is pilot tested), it will be important to understand the community context and identify implementation issues. Through a series of qualitative interviews with key informants, the study will obtain information about: (1) The community's experience with diabetes; (2) community readiness to adopt the DETS curriculum; (3) the connection between the DETS project and the community; and (4) the best fit between the curriculum and community schools.
The participants for this study will include key informants in five categories: Community leaders, DETS Advisory Board members, DETS Curriculum Subcommittee members, community teachers, and community parents. Potential participants will be identified by DETS Subcommittee members and invited to participate in this research activity. These individuals will be invited to participate because they are already involved in the project and are familiar with the curriculum.
A maximum of 18 individuals from each category will be interviewed for a total of 90 participants. All participants will be adults, both male and female, over the age of 18. It is expected that approximately 75% of participants will be Native American and 25% will be non-Native American. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.
Estimate of Annualized Burden Table:
|Respondent||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Avg. burden per response (in hours)||Total burden hours|
|DETS Curriculum Subcommittee Members||18||1||45/60||13.5|
|DETS Advisory Board Members||18||1||45/60||13.5|
