Institutional Funds 

About: 

For this pilot study, we aim to examine feasibility and acceptability of technology-supported financial navigation and financial navigation alongside peer support, and assess preliminary outcomes over a 6-month period. This study is being conducted with participants who have diabetes. 

 

The aims of this pilot trial are to: 1) Examine the feasibility and acceptability of technology-supported financial navigation and financial navigation with peer support; and 2) Examine trends in preliminary efficacy of technology-supported financial navigation and peer support versus financial navigation-alone on 1) A1c and blood pressure (primary outcomes), and 2) out-of-pockets costs, treatment-related financial stress, cost-related non-adherence behaviors, diabetes distress, diabetes self-care behaviors, and uptake of social care assistance (secondary outcomes). We are engaging 50 patients with uncontrolled diabetes and unmet social risk factors. Outcomes will be assessed at baseline and 3- and 6-month follow-up via survey data and the collection of biomarkers.
