DoSA has been fully developed, in conjunction with a panel of South Asian people with Type 2 diabetes.

DoSA is brought to the diabetes education by a collaboration including Successful Diabetes (writing and training, Rosie Walker), King’s College, London (original author Professor Jackie Sturt) and Spirit Healthcare (investor and educators).

Taking part in the DOSA programme means we will ask you to consent to contribute (anonymously) your health information and views about it, to show how effective it is.

Here’s a taste of the DoSA and its companion leaflets!

The DoSA programme manual gives a great deal of information, but also comprises active, practical exercises, quizzes, and self-assessments, to help people reflect on their health and plan to make beneficial changes.

Each 2-week stage is carefully introduced at the start, so people following the programme know exactly what to expect and where the focus will be. The stages complement and build on each other, giving a sense of progress and achievement.

The DoSA companion leaflets are highly practical, colourful and extremely relevant to these two important aspects of life. The short, relevant sections, tips and recommendations are designed to make healthy changes and attentive care of Type 2 diabetes both easy and possible, while still maintaining a South Asian lifestyle and culture. The companion leaflets are easily portable, for quick reference and reminders.
