This study has an overall goal to develop and pilot test a collaborative care intervention using motivational interviewing and behavioral activation alongside education and psychosocial support to improve medication adherence tailored to the experiences of people experiencing homelessness and diabetes (DH). The investigators’ central hypothesis is that medication adherence and diabetes self-care (and eventual glycemic control, health care use/cost) will improve with an intervention tailored to the unique context of DH.
This study will involve addition of a randomization schema to compare D-Homes to brief diabetes education. The study team will enroll participants (n=54), and refine procedures for the randomized trial outcome measures. This includes an assessment of sustained impact of the program at 24-weeks post-treatment. These will complement 12-week post-treatment primary outcome measures.
