Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study (DPPOS)

The Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study (DPPOS) began as the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) in 1994.  The study assessed patients at high risk of developing diabetes to determine if lifestyle modifications of improved diet and exercise along with on oral anti-diabetes medication would prevent the development of diabetes.  After meeting its objectives, DPPOS was established to assess the long-term effects of these interventions.  One of the measures used in the study is the Quality of Well-Being Scale.  HSRC manages the intake of these assessments, as well as the quarterly data reports, discussed at the quality control meetings held by the Coordinating Center.
