FAMS (Family/friend Activation to Motivate Self-care) is a mobile phone-delivered intervention, based on Family Systems Theory, which helps adults with diabetes set behavioral goals and improve support received from friends and family for goal success. FAMS includes monthly phone coaching and text message support by FAMS coaches for the person with diabetes (PWD) and the option to enroll a support person (SP) to receive automated texts tailored to the self-care goals the person with T1D sets in coaching sessions. Adaptations specific to CGM include the option to set CGM use goals in coaching (and receive associated text support) and skill-building exercises during coaching to support data sharing relationships (e.g., establishing, setting and adjusting ground rules about communication).
Within the FAMS-T1D RCT (NCT05820477), we will test effects of FAMS-T1D on CGM use use relative to enhanced treatment as usual. We will evaluate effects on CGM use from baseline to post-intervention (6 months) as the primary endpoint.
