Diabetes Prevention Decathlon : South West London Health and Care Partnership
A ten-week structured education prevention programme aimed at those at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Decathletes attend weekly and within their teams collaborate to discover how to best reduce the risks through theory sessions, games, discussion and a weekly 45-minute physical activity session including variety of sports. Decathletes compete in teams to achieve increased activity levels in between sessions to win ‘Sweatcoins’ and redeemable prizes, also by watching learning recap videos and participating in weekly quizzes. Participants are also signposted to relevant local initiatives. South West London, Sweatcoin, Harlequins Foundation and Health Innovation Network partner to deliver the Decathlon.
