Preferences, Management and Outcomes in the Oldest Patients with Diabetes

The aim of this study is to develop, pilot and conduct a survey among older diabetes patients (75 years of age or older) or their caregiver surrogates to collect data on: 1) self-management barriers (e.g., poor functional status, financial barriers, inadequate health literacy, depression); 2) treatment preferences (e.g., goals, attitudes regarding de-intensification and intensification, use of insulin, perceived risks and benefits of treatment); and 3) patient-reported outcomes (PROs) not commonly or comprehensively captured in the electronic medical record (e.g., health-related quality of life, falls, urinary incontinence, chronic pain).
