The present study proposes to test the effectiveness of the Building a Healthy Temple: Diabetes Self-Management Support Program (BHT DSMS), a rendition of the Stanford DSMP in a spiritual context for the Hispanic faith community members. Using a holistic approach through integrating spiritual and physical health, BHT translates the Stanford DSMP in a way that may result in lasting behavior changes and improved diabetes outcomes for Hispanics with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
The present study is proposing a 12-month translational study BHT DSMS to test the effectiveness of adapted Stanford DSMP in a spiritual context. A cluster randomized trial with repeated measures will be conducted to compare the effectiveness of DSMS intervention strategies among 360 adult diabetic congregants from 18 predominantly Hispanic churches in San Antonio, Texas (20 participants/church). Using cluster randomized trial design; nine churches will be randomly assigned to the Faith-Based (FB) intervention, and nine to the Faith-Placed (FP) intervention. The study will be implemented in two cohorts (8 churches for cohort 1 & 10 churches for cohort 2). All intervention activities will be implemented over 14 consecutive weeks. Participants in the FB group will participate in BHT DSMS, which includes a Health Sermon, a 6-session Health Bible Study with cooking demonstrations, the Stanford DSMP and a Diabetes Resource Seminar delivered by two trained church lay leaders. Participants in the FP group will first attend a 7-session community health and safety curriculum as a partial attention control intervention, followed by the Stanford DSMP and Diabetes Resource Seminar facilitated by the local public health department. The primary outcome will be a change in HbA1c levels. Secondary outcomes include: changes in body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), quality of life, diabetes self-care behaviors, eating behavior and physical activity level. Data will be collected at baseline, 6, 9, and 12-months during the study period. The aims of present study are 1) To test feasibility of the Stanford DSMP in FP and FB settings through observation and documentation of the implementation process, in-depth interviews with program staff and focus groups with participants to identify facilitators and barriers of the intervention. 2) To translate Stanford DSMP in a spiritual context for Hispanic faith community members and compare the effectiveness of a FB versus FP approach in improving diabetes outcomes.
|Experimental: Faith-Based (FB, BHT DSMS)
The BHT DSMD intervention strategies adapted Stanford DSMP in a spiritual context is used in this group. Participants in the FB group will participate in BHT DSMS, which includes a Health Sermon, a 6-session Health Bible Study with cooking demonstrations, the Stanford DSMP and a Diabetes Resource Seminar delivered by two trained church lay leaders.
Behavioral: Faith-Based (FB, BHT DSMS)
BHT DSMS Intervention components include Health Sermon and a 6-session Health Bible Study with cooking demonstrations, followed by the Stanford DSMP and a Diabetes Resource Seminar. All intervention activities are implemented by trained church lay leaders.
|Active Comparator: Faith-Placed (FP, Stanford DSMP)
The traditional Stanford DSMP is conducted in this control group. Participants in the FP group will first attend a 7-session community health and safety curriculum as a partial attention control intervention, followed by the Stanford DSMP and Diabetes Resource Seminar facilitated by the local public health department.
Other: Faith-Placed (FP, Stanford DSMP)
Standard Stanford DSMP delivered by health professional

- Church eligibility: [Churches must be predominantly Hispanics (60%) with at least 20
adult congregants with T2D willing to participate in the study. The rationale for 20
diabetic voluntary participants per church is based on the Stanford requirement of
12-16 participants allowed per support group and with an anticipated 25% attrition.]
- Participants' eligibility: Participants will be adults age 21 and above that have been
diagnosed with T2D.
- Children, adults under 21 years of age, and pregnant women
