The South Gloucestershire Diabetes Prevention Pilot Project (SGDPP)
Bryant, Lisa; Kok, Michele
Aim: This pilot study examined the impact, implementation, and delivery costs of a group-based diabetes prevention education programme for participants at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Background: NICE recommends intensive lifestyle change programmes for ‘at-risk’ individuals, to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes. The South Gloucestershire Diabetes Prevention (Pilot) Project (SGDPP) offered the opportunity for such individuals to receive support and education, not previously available locally. Patients were identified from GP practice records and invited to enrol in a six-week X-PERT Prevention of Diabetes (X-POD) programme delivered by trained educators.
Methodology: Changes from baseline to six months in objective measures of weight, BMI, waist circumference, HbA1c, and self-reported physical activity, diet, health status and psychological wellbeing were assessed. Focus groups and interviews were conducted with participants, project staff and wider stakeholders to assess programme implementation. A unit cost economic evaluation of the programme was also undertaken.
Results: Attendance at group education sessions and six-month follow-up were maintained above 84%. Amongst 91 participants providing follow-up data for the outcome evaluation, significant positive changes were observed for weight (4.04kg loss), BMI (1.43kg/m2 reduction), waist circumference (5.32cm loss), HbA1c (3.45mmol reduction), physical activity, and diet (all p
