New York, New York 10029


Purpose:

Diabetes is a growing epidemic within the United States that disproportionately affects economically disadvantaged communities like East Harlem. As diabetic patients are at very high risk for heart disease, experts recommend an aggressive approach towards using statins in people with diabetes. However, statins and other helpful drugs are only effective if patients decide to take them. Adherence to this medication is notoriously poor and is aggravated by its required life-long use. This study is designed to test the effectiveness of a new decision aid in helping diverse, inner-city patients with diabetes understand the risks and benefits in taking statins and whether this enhanced decision making process improves their adherence to the medication.
