This trial is a block and cluster-randomized open-label multi-centered pragmatic randomized clinical trial comparing healthcare spending and clinical outcomes for subjects with spine pain of less than six weeks duration, in whom there are no red flag signs or symptoms. Subjects are randomized to one of three treatment strategies: (1) usual primary care provider-led care; (2) usual PCP-led care with spine pain treatment directed by the Identify, Coordinate, and Enhanced decision making (ICE) care model, and (3) usual PCP-led care with spine pain treatment directed by the Individualized Postural Therapy (IPT) care model. Outcomes of interest are spine-related healthcare utilization at one year as well as pain and functionality of the study participants.

The primary purposes of the research associated with this award are: 1) to examine the relationship between spousal opinions regarding hearing aids on patient post-use satisfaction with hearing aids and 2) to assess the relative efficacy of different intervention strategies at addressing pre-use expectations with the ultimate aim of improving satisfaction with hearing aids. MI is being tested as one of the intervention strategies.

This grant was awarded to Asante Health System to provide better chronic care management in rural areas. The objective is to improve outcomes and reduce concomitant healthcare costs for congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients in the rural counties of southern Oregon by deploying a hospital-based health management intervention that couples telemonitoring with Motivational Interviewing-based health coaching immediately subsequent to hospital discharge.

This study will integrate cognitive intervention protocols into a health coaching technology and evaluate the feasibility of a novel and scalable method for delivering tailored cognitive health interventions to elders in their home environment. The development and pilot evaluations in this project are designed as preparation for a larger clinical trial evaluating the effectives of various sustained cognitive interventions delivered over longer periods of time with our remote health coaching technology, which is based on Motivational Interviewing.

The purpose of the Healthy Aging Project Phase II is to test the hypothesis that a motivational interviewing intervention in addition to standard care in a primary care setting can enhance quality of life and reduce health risks for clients over the age of 60.
The purposes of the Healthy Aging Project are to: a) create an individualized health care plan in collaboration with participants based on their vulnerability, risk factors, and personal preferences; b) to support that plan through scientifically based behavioral interventions such as coaching, tailored education, and motivational interviews during primary care visits, etc.; and c) to coordinate a full continuum of care in support of the individualized care plan.

This proposal is designed to test two major theoretical health promotion models to address the unhealthy behaviors of fire fighters. Results will greatly assist health professionals to understand strengths and weaknesses of peer led social learning and individualized approaches to enhance health using the motivational interviewing approach.
