AADE promotes research in diabetes self-management education and training (DSME/T) and behavior change to advance evidence-based practices. The Association's research agenda is driven by findings from multi-disciplinary summits and in-depth studies, member input and guidance from the AADE Research Committee. The growing emphasis on research addressing value and effectiveness in health care underscores the need for an infrastructure to foster studies and translate research findings into practice.
AADE Research Agenda
- Build the evidence to demonstrate the value of diabetes educators and DSME/T in enhancing
outcomes (clinical, financial, utilization, behavioral, and satisfaction) via:
- Robust analytical studies
- Data mining and analysis
- Synthesis of emerging literature
- Advance measurement in relation to DSME/T to assess:
- Behavior change and its impact on other outcomes
- Effectiveness of DSME/T and behavior interventions in practice
- Impact of technology
- Undertake translational research to:
- Identify best practices in DSME/T and chronic care management
- Integrate recent evidence-based findings into the practice of DSME/T
- Foster research capabilities among the membership to:
- Provide opportunities to undertake research
- Offer tools to support research and continuous quality improvement (CQI) efforts
- Support accreditation/recognition requirements
