Using Patient Stories in Research to Address Disparities and Change Lives

Dr. Bailey will focus on the importance of patient stories and qualitative research in designing pragmatic and patient-centered outcomes and research interventions to address health disparities. He will highlight experience from his team’s Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) funded study, Management of Diabetes in Everyday Life (MODEL), in using patient input to develop and implement patient-centered interventions to improve diabetes self-care among African American people living in medically underserved areas of the Mid-South. The MODEL study’s successful recruitment and retention of over 670 medically underserved people with diabetes will provide attendees with valuable information that can potentially be adapted to their research settings to help them recruit and retain patients facing disparities by addressing their true needs. 111
