Abstract (type = abstract)
The sub Saharan immigrant population in the United States has nearly doubled every year since 1980. The prevalence of diabetes and diabetes complications are high among African (Kenyan) immigrants due to poor diets, physical inactivity and poor stress management. Lack of knowledge regarding diabetes prevention and management contributes to this problem. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to implement a culturally tailored educational diabetes program for Kenyan immigrants to improve knowledge and self-efficacy in the management of their diabetes. This quality improvement project was implemented over a four-week period. Seventeen participants (n=17) completed the program. Diabetes self-efficacy was measured by the Diabetes Management Self Efficacy Scale (DMSES), diabetes knowledge on physical activity and nutrition was assessed by the Diabetes Knowledge Test (DKT). To evaluate the effect of the intervention on self-efficacy and diabetes knowledge paired t-tests were conducted. The results demonstrated significant improvement in self-efficacy (Pearson correlation 0.68, p-value 1.52811E-06) and diabetes knowledge (Pearson correlation 0.55, p-value 7.19886E-09). This project was successful in improving self-efficacy and increasing diabetes knowledge among Kenyan immigrants with diabetes which will hopefully result in better health outcomes.
