Project Description In 2004-2006, the Greater Green Triangle University Department of Rural Health (GGT UDRH) developed a Diabetes Prevention Program (GGT DPP) for use in Australian primary health care settings. The overall result of the GGT DPP was a 40% risk reduction for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. The second part of the study also tested whether regular structured telephone calls could be effective in maintaining lifestyle changes by providing support to participants. Positive outcomes at 12 months were generally maintained after a further 18 months for those who received regular structured telephone calls as well as those who were in the control group (i.e. no telephone calls).
