Intake Invitations: See How They’re Done

In Intensive Lifestyle Intervention - General on February 28, 2011 at 3:24 PM

At the Fair Haven Community Health Center, prediabetic patients are invited to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Program research study. If interested, they are randomized, and placed in one of two research tracks – delayed, which means they continue seeing their providers every three months and have a consultation with a nutritionist; or immediate, which means they join an intensive lifestyle intervention modeled after the National Institutes of Health’s Diabetes Prevention Program. Reaching out, explaining, inviting, and solidifying participation in the study is no small task.

This short video gives you an intimate view of the process, and provides the basic tools to be able to replicate the tenants of the invitations.
