Improving Diabetes in Emerging Adulthood

Improving Diabetes in Emerging Adulthood

Experimental: MES, QPL & TXT
Participants will receive the MES, QPL, and TXT interventions as described above.
Behavioral: Motivational Enhancement System (MES)
MES is a brief eHealth intervention delivered via an internet-based software application. MES is grounded in the Motivational Interviewing framework and the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills model of health behavior change. The goal of MES is to increase motivation to complete daily diabetes care tasks. MES consists of two 20-minute sessions that integrate psychoeducation with motivation-enhancing therapeutic exercises and behavioral goal setting.
Behavioral: Question Prompt List (QPL)
A QPL is a list of questions related to the physical and psychosocial aspects of diabetes and treatment that youth may want to ask their physicians during a clinic visit. The theoretical foundation for the QPL resides in social-cognitive theory which posits that behavioral performance is a function of self-efficacy and behavioral expectations. Thus, the goal of a QPL is to increase self-efficacy and active participation in clinical care. QPL is completed within 14-days of a diabetes clinic visit and results in a personalized set of questions for youth to bring to their clinic visit.
Behavioral: Text Message Reminders (TXT)
TXT is a behavioral support strategy composed of one-way text message reminders to promote daily diabetes care task completion. TXT is supported by social cognitive theory which suggests that consistent task completion leads to perceptions of control and supports goal attainment. TXT may also foster a stronger relationship with diabetes care providers through greater communication and satisfaction. Youth will receive daily reminders to complete key diabetes care tasks.
