ACHRU researchers are examining the effectiveness of the Aging, Community and Health Research Unit-Community Partnership Program (ACHRU-CPP), a new 6-month nurse-led program that promotes self-management for older adults with diabetes and other chronic conditions.
This article in Trials, presents a protocol for the two-armed, multisite, pragmatic, mixed-methods randomized controlled trial (RCT). This study will provide evidence of the success of the community-based self-management program and ultimately reduce the research-to-practice gap.
