July 4 — Doctoral alumnus publishes article exploring adaptations of existing devices to manage diabetes
Perry Gee, a 2014 alumnus of the doctoral program at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, collaborated with a team of researches from Utah, Washington and California, to analyze social media examining patient do-it-yourself innovations. The team published the online article, “Patient-Driven Diabetes Technologies: Sentiment and Personas of the #WeAreNotWaiting and #OpenAPS Movements,” in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology in July. The team explored Twitter data of tweets with #WeAreNotWaiting and #OpenAPS between 2014 and 2017 to examine patient-led innovation. The study of more than 46,000 Tweets revealed a fast-moving, patient-led movement, supported by health care providers, to bring technology to people with diabetes. The authors concluded that those patients should be part of conversations with health professionals and researchers to expand technologies into diabetes self-management and care. Perry is a nurse scientist at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City and an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Utah.
