Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: This article concludes that an intensive lifestyle intervention can produce sustained weight loss and improvements in fitness, glycemic control, and CVD risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes. Whether these differences in risk factors translate to reduction in CVD events will ultimately be addressed by the Look AHEAD trial.

Title:   Are elements of the Chronic Care Model associated with cardiovascular risk factor control in type 2 diabetes?

Date of publication:  01 March 2009

Publication type:   Research

In a nutshell:  This article examines the relationship between control of CV risk factors, patient self-care behaviors, and the presence of CCM (Chronic Care Model) components across multiple primary care clinic settings. 30 consecutive patients were enrolled from 20 clinics across South Texas  (618 in total) and were asked about their stage of change for: diet, exercise, glucose monitoring, and medication adherence. Risk factors for CV disease among patients with diabetes are associated with the structure and design of the clinical microsystem where care is delivered. Future interventions should focus on clinician knowledge and the clinical microsystem’s structure and design to reduce the burden of CV disease among patients with Type 2 diabetes.
