Developing a Guide for Peer Support Diabetes Management in Rural Alabama
Cherrington et al. describe the development of a 1-year peer support intervention to improve diabetes self-management with African American adults in rural Alabama. The program was developed based on a review of the literature, interviews with key informants and discussions with community health workers. The resulting intervention includes a 2 day training, telephone contacts throughout intervention phases, a peer support network as well as thorough data collection.
