ProKIDS Research Team Receives Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Award

Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, and her PROKids research team received a UW Institute for Clinical and Translational (ICTR) Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) award for their work, “Engaging Stakeholders to Deliver Family-Centered Diabetes Self-Management Resources.” The long-term goal of this line of research is to improve outcomes for children with type 1 diabetes by tailoring the provision of self-management resources to specific family needs. This one-year ICTR award will engage family, community, and clinical stakeholders in order to better understand the outcomes that matter to families of children with type 1 diabetes, and to optimize the implementation of family-centered self-management resources in clinical settings. The PROKids team will partner with families and executives from JDRF as well as stakeholders from the AFCH and the Children’s Diabetes Center (Julie Auenson, CCLS, Dr. Tracy Bekx, Jennifer Brazelton, MA, and Beth Van Den Langenberg, PNP) to achieve the project’s goals.
