Abstract

Purpose:

To test the efficacy of a collaborative intervention to lower hemoglobin A1c levels (HbA1c) in older African Americans with Type 2 diabetes (DM), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and suboptimal medication adherence and glycemic control.

Aims:

  1. To reduce HbA1c level by 0.5% at 6 and 12 months.
  2. To increase MEMS-measured adherence to an oral DM medication at 6 and 12 months.

Hypotheses:

  1. Fifty-five percent of intervention participants, compared to 25% of control participants, will have a reduction in HbA1c of 0.5% at 6 months (short term effect) and 12 months (maintenance effect).
  2. The Primary Care-Occupational Therapy intervention will increase MEMS-measured adherence to a greater extent than enhanced usual care at 6 and 12 months.
