Drs. Jenny Ploeg, Maureen Markle-Reid, and Ruta Valaitis are pleased to receive $1.8 million in funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), in partnership with Diabetes Action Canada (DAC) and the McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) to test their community-based diabetes self-management program for older adult with multiple chronic conditions (MCC) in three provinces over four years.

This new program of research will build on their previous work and refine theĀ ACHRU Community Partnership Program intervention for a multi-site randomized controlled trial, to further evaluate its feasibility, acceptability, and outcomes. A new and innovative community-based model for diabetes care that can be adapted and implemented for older adults with diabetes and MCC across Canada will be developed.
