Featured Research Opportunity

We are investigating whether narratives about patients accomplishing self-care improves self-care intentions and planning among older adults with diabetes. Narratives about patients who overcome barriers to self-care may help older adults develop effective plans for their own self-care (e.g., related to taking medication or exercising). We will work with older adults to identify barriers to and strategies for accomplishing diabetes self-care, and then develop narratives that incorporate these ideas about self-care.
