Behaviour change among people with impaired glucose tolerance: article published

CLAHRC’s Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) Care Call and IGT Health Trainer projects have resulted in the production and publication of an article in the Journal of Health Services Research and Policy.

The article, entitled ‘Behaviour change among people with impaired glucose tolerance: Comparison of telephone-based and face-to-face advice’ looks at research which compares the two lifestyle services for people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, delivered in Salford and Bolton.

The article concludes that local health providers can adapt existing service provision and tailor it to provide lifestyle programmes for people with impaired glucose tolerance. Both telephone and face-to-face service delivery models achieve similar, positive outcomes and offer effective diabetes prevention, although each model may cater for different population needs and a choice of services might be the preferred option.
