TRIAL DESCRIPTION
Public title Diabetic Retinopathy in Kenya: Uptake of Retinal Examination in patients with Diabetes Mellitus (DURE) study
Official scientific title Diabetic Retinopathy in Kenya: Uptake of Retinal Examination in patients with Diabetes Mellitus (DURE) study
Brief summary describing the background and objectives of the trial Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness. Sight loss from DR causes a significant burden on the individual patient, their families, service providers and the health system. All patients with diabetes are at risk of DR.The recommendation is that such patients should have an annual eye examination in order to detect DR early enough. Previous studies have shown that that the adherence to this recommendation is low. Interventions to improve compliance with recommendations for regular eye examination are thus a priority. The aim of the study is to investigate whether a community level peer support intervention can empower people living with diabetes to undergo an annual retinal examination.

STUDY DESIGN
Intervention assignment Allocation to intervention If randomised, describe how the allocation sequence was generated Describe how the allocation sequence/code was concealed from the person allocating the participants to the intervention arms Masking If masking / blinding was used
Factorial: participants randomly allocated to either no, one, some or all interventions simultaneously Randomised Patient support groups will be allocated to the intervention and control arms. A computer-generated allocation sequence will be provided by a statistician who is not involved in the field work. Patient support groups will be the strata for allocation. Randomization will be at the cluster level (patient support group).Recruitment will be conducted by a research nurse who is masked to the randomization sequence. After recruitment, the allocation determined by an off-site statistician will be revealed on telephone. Masking/blinding used Outcome Assessors
