UC Davis nursing school gets grant for diabetes study

From page A3 | August 10, 2014 |

A research project led by the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis has been approved for a $2.1 million award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to study improving health for individuals with diabetes.

The study is one of 33 proposals approved for funding to advance the field of patient-centered comparative effectiveness research and provide patients, health-care providers and other clinical decision-makers with information that will help them make better-informed choices.

Associate Vice Chancellor for Nursing and Dean Heather M. Young will lead the research project at UCD. The study will focus on individuals with diabetes and determine if innovative approaches, including mobile technology and nurse coaching, help those people better manage the chronic disease.

The award is the first major funded research project led by the School of Nursing, which was founded in 2009 and opened to graduate students in 2010.
“This project builds on the work of our research team to discover ways to partner with individuals with chronic diseases in order to reach their health goals, as well as creative ways to deliver health care through wireless technologies,” Young said.

She added that researchers from other centers and organizations — including the UC Center for Information Technology Research for the Improvement of Society, the UCD Clinical Translational Science Center and the Initiative for Wireless Health and Wellness at UCD — contributed to foundational research for this study and will play important roles in completing this three-year project.

“Together, individuals with chronic health conditions and health-care providers, along with enabling technology, we can shift the health-care conversation to wellness and contribute to improved health,” Young said.
