Research Design
The research design which was chosen for this research was the quantitative randomized controlled trial (RCT), which is used to reduce any bias in the research being conducted. Randomly selecting participants and reducing any bias allows the researchers to see how a treatment plan affects the group who is being treated and compare the results to the comparison group who is not receiving any treatment (Kampf, Löffler, & Gastmeier, 2009). The intervention and comparison group will go through an intake which is when we gather medical history, basic patient information, and list of medications currently being taken. Next, both groups will take a survey to see what they already know and do not know about diabetes and management. Then the intervention group will start to implement the new ways to care for their diabetes, which they will be closely monitored in an inpatient facility. This study will take one year to complete to ensure that the participants do intake, educational program, receive and implement treatment plan, do an A1C, influenza vaccine, and one eye exam. The expected outcome of this research is reducing the number of incidences of Diabetic Retinopathy in adults 18 to 75 years of age. The Health Promotion Model (HPM) will be used in my research to show how increased knowledge about diabetes and health management will benefit a diabetic patient and reduce incidences of diabetic retinopathy. The model emphasizes the need to be properly protected and
