Mentored Research to Improve Care for Complex Patients With DiabetesK24 Midcareer Investigator Awards in Patient-Oriented Research are designed to support established scientists with a track record of mentoring to devote time to research mentorship for junior investigators. The overarching goal of this K24 award is to develop innovative approaches to improving the care of complex patients with type 2 diabetes, including the growing number of Latinos with diabetes, by developing new care models and innovative tools to support patients and providers in achieving more effective diabetes primary care. Specific research aims are to: 1) Examine the relationship between patient visit priorities and PCP care plans; 2) Adapt pre-visit prioritization for Low-English-Proficiency and Spanish-speaking Latinos; and 3) Learn how to effectively implement alternative health IT platforms such as smart phones, interactive voice response, and other novel modalities for pre-visit prioritization. The project will provide ample mentored research opportunities for highly promising mentees with an interest and passion for patient-oriented research to improve the care of patients with type 2 diabetes.
