Introduction: Diabetes is one of the commonest long-term conditions in the UK, affecting about 2 million adults. It causes substantial morbidity and premature mortality and costs the NHS about £9 million per annum. Structured education reduces the incidence of complications and NICE advises that all people with T2DM should have structured education at diagnosis with annual reinforcement. In 2006 only 11% of people with T2DM reported being offered such education, suggesting considerable ummet need. This programme aims to address this need through the development, evaluation and implementation of a computer-based self-management programme (SMP) for people with type 2 Diabetes.
Results: Early del;iverables include an understanding of essential and desirable characteristics of a computer-based SMP to inform the development of similar programmes for other long-term conditions. By year 2 we will have an innovative, theoretically-informed SMP of proven acceptability to users through a process of participatory design. By year 5 we will have data on its effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, resources needed for implementation, and impact on health when used in routine clinical practice.
Conclusions: We hope the combination of innovative methodology, strong theoretical undepinning and a highly prevalent chronic condition will be of interest to everyone in the department, especially those with an interest in or experience of using complex interventions.
