Using RE-AIM to Evaluate Encourage-2: A cluster-randomized trial in rural Alabama funded under the iADAPT opportunity

AHRQ Annual Conference, 2011
iADAPT Grantee Session

Slide 2

Community Health Workers (CHW) to improve functioning in diabetes + chronic pain

  • Pain is common in diabetes:
    • 60-80% persons with diabetes report chronic pain.
    • Osteoarthritis (OA) most common cause.
  • Pain is a barrier to self-care.
  • Cluster-randomized controlled trial (RCT), rural Alabama:
    • Participants: adults w. diabetes + chronic pain.
    • Intervention:
      • CHW-delivered telephone + DVD.
      • Cognitive behavior training to maximize functioning despite pain.
      • Diabetes self-care.
      • Comparative Effectiveness Reviews (CERs): OA, diabetes; integrated into education/training program content.
    • Outcomes: risk factors (A1c, BP, chol), functional status.

Slide 3

Reach

  • Participation rates.
  • Representativeness among the sampling frame of patients with diabetes.

Strengths:

  • Telephonic delivery.

Challenges:

  • Community realities—"bring a neighbor".
  • Denominators.

Slide 4

Reach

  • HIGH.

Slide 5

Efficacy/Effectiveness:

  • Design: RCT.
  • Outcomes:
    • Primary:
      Metabolic control (A1c, BP, chol).
      Functional status.
    • Secondary:
      Self-care behaviors.
      Cost.

Strengths:

  • Community setting—representativeness/effectiveness.
  • One-on-one, potent intervention.
  • DVD component.

Challenges:

  • Community-member delivered—intervention fidelity.

Slide 6

Effectiveness

  • MED-HIGH.

Slide 7

Adoption:

  • More speculative (!).
  • Cost.
  • Requires new resources?

Strengths:

  • Low-cost.

Challenges:

  • No infrastructure to sustain program (Healthcare Reform?).

Slide 8

Adoption

  • LOW (MED?).

Slide 9

Implementation:

  • Low complexity: high.
  • Sustainable intervention fidelity: high.

Strengths:

  • Cultural concordance lowers complexity.
  • Telephone.

Challenges:

  • Community interventionists increase complexity.
  • Training needs.
  • Reliance on tenuous infrastructure (Healthcare Reform?).

Slide 10

Implementation

  • LOW (MED?).

Slide 11

Maintenance:

  • Individual:
    • What is f/u?
    • Do social networks form?
    • Is tailoring required?
  • System:
    • Does motivation for intervention reside in community-based organization?
    • Outreach via telephone: low cost, flexible (reimbursement?).

Slide 12

Maintenance:

  • Strengths:
    • Social networks?
    • Telephone delivery.
  • Challenges:
    • No structure for sustained f/u (Healthcare Reform?).
    • Motivation for intervention does not reside in community-based organization.

Slide 13

Maintenance

  • MED.
