In 2009, TRIAD investigators began to synthesize the body of study findings into a coherent and useful set of message and reports for dissemination to health care systems, physicians, provider groups, researchers, and patients. A key target group for this dissemination were the state-based, CDC funded Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs.
The TRIAD study group published a comprehensive paper on many of the study's different findings. The paper is entitled "Health Systems, Patient Factors and Quality of Care for Diabetes: A Synthesis of Findings from the TRIAD Study" Diabetes Care, 2010 April; Vol. 33; No.4; 940-947.
In response to a new funding opportunity announcement (FOA) released in December 2009 by CDC, five of the original six TRCs were awarded to carry out a TRIAD "Legacy" study that will conclude in June 2013. During this time, investigators will finish exploring hypotheses and research questions using the unique datasets from the original study, and continue to prepare results for final dissemination.
