Project Title: Lifestyle intervention, that includes diet and physical activity components, for people living with gout in primary care.
The aim of this project is to develop a new lifestyle intervention, that includes diet and physical activity components, for people living with gout in primary care.
Stages of this project include:
1. Evidence synthesis (including review of guidelines, systematic reviews, intervention and qualitative studies) will identify possible intervention components and barriers to lifestyle (including diet and physical activity) behaviours.
2. Semi-structured interviews to explore stakeholder views on views on lifestyle interventions (including diet and physical activity) for gout. Behavioural analysis to evaluate the semi-structured interview data, identify appropriate behaviour change techniques, and specify the intervention components.
3. A Community of Practice (CoP) to co-design the intervention.
4. Develop a protocol for a pilot and feasibility trial of the intervention
PPIE will be incorporated throughout the intervention development process and will align with the UK standards for public involvement.
