Abstract

This dissertation aimed to explore the barriers, facilitators, and user preferences of digital health use for diabetes self-management among Black men while also investigating clinicians’ perspectives of digital health use for clinical decision making and management of diabetes. Chapter one contains an introduction to digital health and diabetes management among Black men, followed by gaps in the literature and aims addressed within this dissertation. Chapter Two is a study designed to evaluate the barriers and facilitators to digital health use for self-management of diabetes among Black men. Chapter Three is a study intended to investigate desired design requirements for a diabetes self-management app among Black men living with diabetes with Black men as the key stakeholders. Chapter Four is a study constructed to evaluate clinicians’ perspectives of the utility of patient generated health data to guide clinical decision making and self-management of diabetes. Chapter five provides an overall review of the dissertation, a discussion on the implications of the research, study limitations, and directions for future research.
