Effectiveness of Telehealth Occupation-Based Coaching for Families with a Child with Type 1 Diabetes
Due to high demand, we are currently pausing enrollment
Creighton University is seeking participants for a type 1 diabetes study aimed at examining the effectiveness of occupation-based coaching delivered via telehealth.
We’ll explore how this coaching affects child health outcomes, family quality of life and parental competence with health maintenance activities after a child’s diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.
This study is open to families who:
- Have a young child (2-12 years) diagnosed with type 1 diabetes
- Live at least one hour from a pediatric endocrinologist’s office
- Are not currently receiving occupational therapy services
- Live in Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa or Minnesota
Participants will receive:
- A $100 stipend
- An iPad
- 3 months of Dexcom continuous glucose monitoring supplies
- 12 weeks of occupational therapy services via telehealth
Translators / interpreters available on request.
