1 After Core Strategies SDPI DP Grantee Meeting March 10, 2006 Denver, CO

2 What is After Core ? Provide participant support after 16 Core sessions Assist participants in achieving and/or maintaining goals Critical to helping prevent diabetes Affirms that we understand the cycles of behavior change

3 -15-10-50+5 0 5 10 15 20 Hazard Rate for Developing Diabetes As A Function of Weight Change From Baseline Hazard rate per 100/yr Mean weight change from baseline (kg) Average Risk Intensive Lifestyle Group

4 DPP After Core Goals Reach and/or maintain weight loss goals Reach and/or maintain activity goals Retain participants in program

5 DPP Requirements for Contacts After Core Whatever needed for adherence to goals Contact at least monthly, and see participants in person at least every two months (most participants desired/needed more frequent contact) Three group sessions offered per year –Healthy eating, activity, behavior Encourage individualization

6 DP SDPI Grant Requirements for After Core Goal: Continue progress toward goals or maintenance of goals Encourage monthly (minimum quarterly) follow up with participants after the 16 week curriculum Manual for Contacts After Core –In person visits, phone contact, group activities/classes –Individualize topics needed, including behavioral, physical activity, healthy eating

7 DPP Principles for After Core Planning Design the participant contact schedule based on the participant’s recent pattern of adherence Transition participants from weekly visits slowly and ONLY if high levels of adherence persists Be prepared to begin seeing the participant weekly again if needed based on the ongoing pattern of adherence

8 DPP Principles for After Core Planning (continued) Be proactive. Schedule an appointment right away if you discover a downward trend in adherence based on data received between visits by phone or mail Design the schedule based on the participant’s preference, keeping any retention issues in mind.

9 After Core In-Person Visits Greet Weigh-in, collect activity minutes and discuss Review homework and action plans made at previous contact It is important that sessions don’t become loosely organized on “how are things going?” but should have a definite focus such as –Introducing a new topic as planned –Reviewing a topic from an earlier session if needed

10 After Core In-Person Visits (cont.) Complete a problem solving/action plan worksheet that corresponds with the topic covered and review tools Schedule next contact

11 After Core Mail Contacts The purpose of mail contacts is to have the participants inform their coach about their progress in weight loss and physical activity Should be tailored to each participant in order to best support adherence Other contacts like notes of encouragement or greeting cards are good for retention but were not considered a mail contact unless they were reporting requested information back to coach

12 After Core Phone Contacts Set date/time for call ahead of time Ask participant to have completed home assignments available for the call i.e. home weights or exercise minutes Problem solve together any barriers Make a plan and follow-up

13 Remember that in the DPP…
