Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


People with prediabetes (those who have "borderline" hyperglycaemia) are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, but progression to diabetes is by no means inevitable. A number of interventions for individuals who are at high risk have been shown to reduce the risk. The WAKEUP (Ways of Addressing Knowledge Education and Understanding in Pre-diabetes) information toolkit for people with prediabetes and their health practitioners was developed in 2007 and updated in 2014. Principles for delivering a brief intervention based on the freely available WAKEUP materials are presented.
