Abstract

IN BRIEF Type 2 diabetes has been labeled an epidemic in many American Indian communities. Thus, identifying factors that improve medication adherence for American Indian patients is crucial. We found significant and positive relationships among patient-centered care, medication adherence, and diabetes empowerment. In addition, diabetes empowerment partially mediated the relationship between patient-centered care and medication adherence.
