Description:
ADDITION-Plus is a trial nested within the Cambridge arm of the Anglo-Danish-Dutch Study of Intensive Treatment in People With Screen Detected Diabetes in Primary Care.

ADDITION-Plus is an extensive data set containing information from baseline, one-year and five-year follow-up.

The database follows the Unit's generic model and standardises its structure and management to match other studies for data sharing.

Abstract:
ADDITION-Plus is an explanatory randomised controlled trial in 34 general practices in Eastern England. 478 patients with recently diagnosed diabetes were individually randomised to receive (i) intensive treatment (n=239), or (ii) intensive treatment plus a theory-based behaviour change intervention led by a facilitator external to the general practice team (n=239). The aim was to assess whether a theory-based behaviour change intervention delivered by trained and quality-assured lifestyle facilitators can achieve and maintain improvements in physical activity, dietary change, medication adherence and smoking cessation in people with recently diagnosed diabetes. Outcomes were assessed at one and five years.

Research areas:
Behaviour change intervention in patients with newly diagnosed diabetes.

Research purposes:
The study aimed to assess whether a theory-based behaviour change intervention delivered by trained and quality-assured lifestyle facilitators can achieve and maintain improvements in physical activity, dietary change, medication adherence and smoking cessation in people with recently diagnosed diabetes.

Population:
478 men and women with recently diagnosed diabetes and a mean age of 60 years.

Status:
Data collection and cleaning is finished for baseline, one-year and five-year datasets. Ten-year follow-up is planned for 2014-15. Data cleaning has been carried out by ADDITION-Plus staff.

Recruitment:
No longer recruiting.

Patients were recruited from 34 general practices in the East of England. The majority of practices (n=26) were participating in the intensive treatment arm of the ADDITION-Cambridge trial of treatment of people with diabetes detected by screening. A further eight practices were recruited to increase the participation of recently clinically diagnosed patients. 478 individuals were recruited for ADDITION-Plus.
