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.
