  • Description:
    Form Approved OMB No. 0920-0909 Exp. Date: 02/28/2021 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) ( program/index.html) as part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) ( The DPRP provides information to people at high risk of type 2 diabetes, their health care providers, and health payers about the location and performance of type 2 diabetes prevention programs across organizations with various delivery modes (in-person, online, and combination). The purpose of the DPRP is to recognize organizations that have demonstrated their ability to effectively deliver a proven type 2 diabetes prevention lifestyle change program. The recognition program helps to assure that decisions about individual participation, patient referral, and health insurance benefits are based on accurate, reliable, and trustworthy information. The DPRP is further committed to ensuring health equity by increasing access to type 2 diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs among vulnerable populations, including those living in geographically hard to reach or rural areas, through a variety of modalities. The DPRP assures the quality of recognized organizations and provides standardized reporting on their performance. The original 2011 DPRP Standards for type 2 diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs and requirements for recognition were based on successful efficacy and effectiveness studies. In one such efficacy study, the U.S. Diabetes Prevention Program research trial (DPP), participants in the lifestyle intervention losing 5-7% of their bodyweight experienced a 58% lower incidence of type 2 diabetes than those who did not receive the lifestyle intervention (see program-dpp/Documents/DPP_508.pdf). The current standards, though still grounded in the earlier research, incorporate innovations from further translational studies, best practices, and expert opinion. This document—CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program Standards and Operating Procedures (or DPRP Standards, for short)—describes in detail the DPRP standards for type 2 diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs and explains how an organization may apply for, earn, and maintain CDC recognition. dprp-standards.pdf
