This study has an overall goal to modify and pilot test a previously developed 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 intervention was developed in English. This study is intended to test the modified intervention for DH who speak Spanish (DH-SH). The study team’s 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-SH.
This protocol tests patient perceptions of the feasibility and acceptability of study procedures and refines the D-Homes treatment manual through test cases (n=12). The study team hypothesizes that the D-Homes manual and study procedures will be feasible and acceptable to DH-SH as measured by self-report and post-treatment interview.
