Changing Health’s Innovative Intervention Programme to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Summary

Changing Health’s intervention programme to prevent Type 2 diabetes combines new technology and behavioural change experts to encourage people to make long term, positive lifestyle changes. It has been adopted as part of the ​Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programm​e (DPP). The NHS provides face-to-face, structured education and support, but its approach cannot be tailored to individual needs. The solution is a personalised, digital programme using comprehensive research in metabolism, diabetes and behavioural science. It combines bespoke, one-to-one lifestyle coaching (delivered over the phone), with a customisable course of structured diabetes education (delivered via an app). People at risk of diabetes learn how ​they​ can fit simple lifestyle changes into their lives and receive personalised support. Each participant sets goals based on their ability to change at any one time and can call on a dedicated lifestyle coach for support or just to chat about their health.
