HEAL-D: A Culturally-Tailored T2D Self-Management Programme for Black-British Communities

Summary

Addressing poorer diabetes-related outcomes in Black African and Caribbean (BAC) patients is an urgent healthcare priority. Healthy Eating & Active Lifestyles for Diabetes (HEAL-D) is a Type 2 diabetes (T2D) self-management programme, culturally-tailored to meet the needs of BAC patients. HEAL-D was developed using co-creation methods to ensure its cultural relevance and acceptability. It has been evaluated in a pilot study in primary care, showing significant improvements in HbA1c and patient quality of life (QOL) and resulting in south London commissioners adopting it for wider implementation.
