Introduction: CTC is a 15-month intervention study evaluating a patient-centered, home telehealth care model for young adults (YA) ages 16-25 with T1D. The patient-centered CoYoT1 Care arm includes a shared decision-making tool completed by providers (n=3) and patients (n=47) prior to each visit. The present analysis examines how patients and providers collaborated to shape initial visit agendas. Methods: Six potential topics were each rated on a 1-5 scale, where higher values indicate greater importance. Patient and provider ratings within each topic were compared using paired t-tests. Next, ratings were compared between visits where a topic was discussed or not discussed using independent t-tests; patient and provider data were evaluated separately.
Results: Blood sugar ranges and supply/medication issues were discussed most frequently. Providers assigned higher overall importance to emotional well-being than their patients (p=0.005), but this topic was only discussed when patients assigned higher importance (p=0.001). Also, despite higher provider ratings, blood sugar ranges were only discussed when patients assigned higher importance (p=0.003). Discussion: Consistent with the CoYoT1 Care model, patients and providers collaborated to shape visit agendas, slightly favoring the patient perspective. Topics discussed were those assigned higher importance by patients and providers.
