Abstract

Introduction: The study purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of a chronic disease self management/case management intervention for adults experiencing homelessness and diabetes and the ability to retain subjects. Methods: Participants with type 2 diabetes were recruited at a homeless clinic and a subset received the intervention. Analysis included calculating a retention rate and evaluating the intervention implementation process. Results: Of the nine participants, five were retained for 12 weeks and two of three participants completed the full intervention. Conclusions: Study retention is feasible for adults experiencing homelessness. Further intervention refinement is needed to address relevancy of content and time constraints.
