Type 2 Diabetes Management Health Coaching Trial

This has been a randomized controlled trial comparing use of health coaching with smartphone – connected software (NexJ Connected Wellness – NexJ Systems Inc.) vs. health coaching without smartphone-connected interventions. This trial will intervene with and assess 105 individuals with Type 2 Diabetes, randomly divided into the two comparison groups. The primary outcome measure is Hb A1c at 6 months post-intervention. Twenty-three patients have also been given semi-structured interviews to gain detailed self-report about their health coaching experiences.

One paper, based on pilot RCT data, was presented at the 2013 Medicine 2.0 meetings in London, UK. A full journal article will be drafted and submitted on completion of the trial.
