Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD was recently awarded a 3-year Innovative Translational Science Award from the American Diabetes Association for her project, “Identifying Actionable Self-Management Barriers for Adults with Type 1 Diabetes.”  Building upon her prior work developing PRISM (Problem Recognition in Illness Self-Management), a 10-minute survey to identify diabetes self-management barriers among youth, the newly funded research will develop and validate a version of PRISM to assess diabetes self-management barriers among adults.  Availability of this survey tool for adults is expected to positively impact diabetes care by aligning the self-management resources provided with the actual needs of a person with type 1 diabetes.  The PRISM tool for youth is available at: https://www.hipxchange.org/PRISM.
