We are celebrating! Grab a seat and enjoy this new article with lead author Amy Huebschmann who adds to the story of utilizing an evidence-based physical activity counseling program for those living with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) through her research. In this pilot randomized pragmatic trial Amy and co-authors evaluated feasibility, acceptability, cost, and effectiveness for primary care patients, staff, and leaders. They found that while physical activity changes were less than anticipated; Short Physical Performance Battery outcomes, self-efficacy, and social-environmental support improved significantly. The intervention was found to be highly acceptable and feasible for stakeholders while yielding significant improvements in objective physical function consistent with lower fall risk.
The Rural Cancer Advisory Board is currently comprised of 9 women from all over the state. While not experts in healthcare, they are experts in rural living with a variety of backgrounds such as ranchers, teachers, and regional health connectors. The primary purpose of the group is to provide insight, feedback, and recommendations to cancer researchers from a rural patient and caregiver perspective. Our research advisors are volunteers. They have varying levels of experience with cancer; some personally, some as family caregivers, and some as community support.
The group meets every other month in a virtual format. Please contact Adreanne Brungardt for more information, including if you would like to present your research study for input from these patient advisors – Adreanne.email@example.com
