Abstract

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University conducted a randomized clinical trial to test the effect of nurse case management and community health worker interventions on diabetes control among inner city African Americans. The results demonstrated that the greatest improvement occurred when nurse case managers and community health workers worked together. This study has implications for how nurse/home health aide collaboration can enhance diabetes management in home care.
