Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Adults with Diabetes and Cognitive Impairment or Dementia and Their Care Partners

(IRB#: IRB_00172781)

Continuous Glucose Monitoring is a way to show people with diabetes when they have high or low blood sugar throughout the day. Continuous Glucose Monitoring data can be shared continuously with care partners (family or friends) using an app. However, the person with diabetes and their care partner may need help communicating and problem-solving using the sugar data. This study will explore how to change a current program that uses this data-sharing app. The new program will help older adults with diabetes and cognitive impairment (hard to remember or learn new things), or dementia (memory loss) and their care partners share Continuous Glucose Monitoring data. People in the study will complete a survey and attend a 30-to-90-minute discussion with about 5 to 8 other people to give researchers advice on how to change a current Continuous Glucose Monitoring program. People will be paid for participating.
