1. Building a network

We would like to bring people together worldwide who are interested in the prevention of diabetes mellitus and develop a network for them.
Therefore we are interested in everyone who is active in diabetes prevention including all different views, professions, settings and approaches. We are interested in the national leader of a primary prevention program as well as the nurse or mother preventing diabetes for a single person in Asia, Europe, Africa or Australia and America.
This includes also those who think that diabetes mellitus and its associated medical, economical and social problems affects them in their work, responsibilities and personal life – like politicians, public Health experts or health care providers.
The main focus of this programme is to develop a platform where people involved in prevention of diabetes at all levels, sectors and disciplines worldwide can gather. The overall goal is to stimulate and support active communication between all members with the aims of:

  • Sharing information, experiences, advice and resources
  • Empowerment of all people active in prevention of diabetes at all levels, sectors and disciplines.
  • Defining diabetes prevention practice in the “real world”
  • Leading to success in diabetes prevention practice

I would like to invite you to join this initiative and build together a network of people active in diabetes prevention world wide. I think in the current stage of discussing the implementation of prevention programs into clinical practice, everyone can benefit from such an initiative. A successful network can add value to all those who try to implement diabetes prevention activities into their clinical work within the community, also for policy development and for the researcher in the field. We are planning several actions in the network like you can read below, and are open to every suggestion from you to make the network an added value to YOU. I hope you can join the network and can make the network a success to all of us.

Sincerely yours

Peter Schwarz
Professor for Prevention and Care of Diabetes

2. Network Newsletter information

In the network we want to develop an information system for all members, informing about news in diabetes prevention including science, prevention practice, preventions programmes and new initiatives of interest to the network members. The current plan is to send on regular basis 2-page newsletter summarizing

  • Scientific articles in diabetes prevention
  • Articles relevant for Prevention practice
  • Information about prevention projects worldwide
  • New products in diabetes prevention

This newsletter will be sent form the network on behalf of the network and we invited every network member to provide input to the newsletters (your project, your article written or comments of an article read by you). You can read more about the network newsletter concept after registration.
Are you interested to receive this information and to give input to the Network Information Newsletters? Then join the network today and register here.

3. Developing Practice guidance for diabetes prevention practice in the “real world”

One idea of the network is to develop step by step practical guidelines for diabetes prevention in a consensus process with all partners joining the network. The focus here is what “practical” is. The idea is to present an introducing chapter to an issue relevant to prevention practice which then it is discussed by the network partners and adjusted to different regional needs and specifications, national requirement and scientific expertise. With this process we can develop a practice guideline which can be applied and used in hopefully all regions worldwide. It is expected that this guideline can be efficient in practical use because the prevention “practitioners” have developed it. At the end the members of the network can develop a consensus guideline driven by the people active in diabetes prevention in real practice.
Are you interested to join this discussion and to give input to the network diabetes prevention practice guideline? Then start today and join the network now. Register here.

4. “Prevention in Practice” book issued during the 6th World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes and its Complications in April, 2010

During the 6th World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes and its Complications in April, 2010 (WCPD2010), we will issue for the first time a book summarizing practical experiences and information about the implementation of diabetes prevention programmes worldwide. Our aim is to establish a standard technical handbook presenting different strategies for the prevention of diabetes realized in a practice setting, looking to enable the reader to learn from these experiences while establishing his own strategy. Therefore we would like to invite you - as member of the network and active in diabetes prevention - to participate in the book and to write a short chapter about your experience. All participants at the WCPD 2010 will receive a free copy of this book.
If you are interested to participate and to provide a short chapter about your experience in diabetes prevention, then join the network now and register here.

5. Issuing “Prevention in Practice “ Grants

In the future we would like to issue grants for people active in diabetes prevention, looking to help them to build up their own program. The primary focus will be the practical relevance of the proposed action. All members in the network can apply if there is a scheduled call. If the applications fulfill the guidelines, then the application will be presented to all members of the network and every registered member can vote who should get the grant. This means you as a network member have a good chance to receive a grant for prevention practice but also the responsibility to vote and decide honestly who should get the support.

6. Developing and distributing printed material for prevention practice

To be as practical as possible, the network should be a place where every network member can get access to prevention material – freely available for everyone. This for example can include the FINDRISK Score in different languages - freely downloadable and modifiable for everyone. Step by step we are going to add more material including intervention material and training material for intervention managers worldwide.
If you have interest on obtaining this material, then join the network today. Register here.

7. Science in the network

One of our ideas is to use the network also for answering scientific questions related to diabetes prevention. This may includes question-based surveys but also establishing multicentric scientific approaches and trials/surveys applied to all people included in any kind of prevention programme. This can be a clear added value to the scientific knowledge in diabetes prevention worldwide.
If this topic is of your interest, please register and be part of the Worldwide Network ‘Who is Active in Diabetes Prevention’ now. Please register here.
