Grants and Contracts Details


Objectives: The University of Kentucky, College of Nursing (UK CON) in collaboration with University of Kentucky Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center (UK BBDC) will implement and evaluate a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) in English-speaking and Spanish-speaking women with a history of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). Intervention: Implementation of the DPP based on standards and procedures and guidelines for the CDC DPRP during the postpartum* period in women with a history of GDM. Participants: Thirty eligible participants (nƒ­15 English/primary language; nƒ­15 Spanish/primary language) receive six months Core DPP training and at least three sessions of post-core DPP training by trained lifestyle coaches. Outcomes Measures: CDC-required data elements (CDC, 2015, pp. 15-16) with no information in identifiable form (directly or indirectly identifiable).1 Discussion: Data from the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) study show that lifestyle intervention or treatment with metformin can be cost-effective in preventing or delaying type 2 diabetes in women with a history of GDM (Herman, et al., 2005).2,3 Furthermore after three years, the DPP also showed that treatment with pharmacological agents for hypertension and hyperlipidemia were reduced by 27¡V28% and 25%, respectively in the intervention group when compared with the control group (Ratner, et al., 2005).4 Conclusion: The UK CON in collaboration with the UK BBOC has the resources and required DSME recognized program to develop, implement, and evaluate the grant-funded, CDC-led DPP.
