Table 2 Data Collection for Outcome Measures

From: Tablet-Aided BehavioraL intervention EffecT on Self-management skills (TABLETS) for Diabetes

Outcome Test Measurement
Primary outcome measures Physical activity Measured by the 16-item Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ) [57]
  Diet Dietary intake assessed using the Rapid Eating and Activity Assessment for Participants Short Version (REAP-S) [58]
  Medication adherence Measured with the 8-item self-report Morisky Medication Adherence Scale (MMAS) [59]
  Self-monitoring behavior Measured with the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities (SDSCA) scale [60]
Secondary outcome measures HbA1c, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) Blood specimens obtained at baseline, 2.5 and 6.5 months visits
  Blood pressure (BP) measurements An average of three BP readings done in 2-minute intervals obtained at baseline, 2.5 and 6.5 months by a trained RA using automated BP monitors (OMRON IntelliSenseTM HEM-907XL) with the patient seated comfortably for 5 minutes prior to the measurements
  Cardiovascular disease risk Framingham Risk Score (FRS) estimates the 10-year risk of “hard” coronary heart disease outcomes (myocardial infarction, death) [45]
  Quality of life The SF-12 is a valid and reliable instrument to measure functional status and will be used to assess quality of life at baseline, 2, and 6 months assessments. The SF-12 items reproduce at least 90 % of the variance in PCS-36 and MCS-36 scores [49]
