This chapter provides a transferable framework for developing a structured education programme aimed at preventing type 2 diabetes in people of South Asian ethnic origin. It shows that there is a lack of evidence surrounding lifestyle modification programmes that are both effective and suitable for implementation in a primary health care setting. In addition, there has been little attempt to address the specific needs of people from ethnic minority backgrounds, who tend to have an increased risk of many chronic diseases compared to white Europeans, and who form a large proportion of the population in many urban areas. The chapter describes a method of addressing this need, and provides the health care community with a systematic and reproducible approach to designing and developing a lifestyle modification programme.
