Back to Kentucky PBRN Page


The Kentucky PBRN is testing the ability of local public health agencies to implement quality improvement (QI) strategies as part of a diabetes education and self-management program implemented through regional diabetes centers of excellence across the state. The study is designed to identify factors that influence the adoption and implementation of evidence-based diabetes self-management strategies, and estimate the comparative effectiveness of agency-supported QI strategies in facilitating adoption and implementation.
