Improving Diabetes Management in Children with Type 1 Diabetes (DP3)

Improving Diabetes Management in Children with Type 1 Diabetes (DP3): RFA-DK-16-003

juvenile diabetes

Goals

The goal of this initiative is to support research to develop, refine, and pilot test innovative strategies to improve diabetes management and quality of life in families with children with type 1 diabetes. Studies in response to this funding opportunity can focus on young children (under 5 years old) and/or school-aged children (ages 5-9 years old).  At the end of the funding period, there should be well-developed and well-characterized intervention/s that have been demonstrated to be safe, feasible to implement, effective, acceptable in the target population, and ready to be tested in a larger efficacy trial. T

The focus of research submitted to this FOA should be on improving clinical outcomes. Therefore, the primary outcome should be a clinical measure of improved diabetes management (e.g., HbA1c, hypoglycemia, DKA). Secondary outcomes can include other physiologic measures, parent and child coping and should include measurement of behavior change targeted in the intervention.

Pilot or preliminary data are not required. However, there should be a strong justification that the proposed approach has promise for improving diabetes management in children. For example, the approach has been shown to be effective with other patient populations or diseases or there is a reasonable foundation of basic behavioral or social science to suggest that the target of intervention influences relevant behavior or coping.

This FOA focuses on developing interventions to improve diabetes management. Research might address the following issues related to diabetes management:

Interventions to help families improve diabetes management such as approaches focused on the targets below or some combination:

  • Families (the parents or other caregivers) to address issues such as diabetes related stress/distress, family coping/communication, low health literacy/numeracy, or over/under prediction of risks;
  • The healthcare team including collaborative communication between the family and the health care team and family-centered diabetes management goal setting and assessment;
  • The health care system (practice level changes, health information technology tools); or
  • Other resources or tools to support family coping and improve diabetes self-management.

Interventions to improve the use of new or existing technologies, including insulin pumps, blood glucose monitors, and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems to:

  • Better address nocturnal hypoglycemia such as with a CGM that may be integrated in a low glucose suspend or closed loop system; or
  • Address barriers to use of the technology and identify and test approaches that facilitate more effective and sustained use.

Exchange of ideas and collaboration between funded investigators will be encouraged though yearly investigator meetings.

Research in response to this initiative should be for human studies only.
