SKIP: Development and evaluation of a prototype for an online multimedia intervention to promote physical activity in children with type 1 diabetes 

This project, funded by the Nottingham Hospitals Charity, is finalising and testing a prototype for an online intervention that promotes physical activity in children aged between nine and 12 who have type 1 diabetes. It's the latest phase of our SKIP research (Supporting Kids with diabetes In Physical activity). 

Our work includes assessing the acceptability of the SKIP prototype among children, parents and health professionals. The results will inform and support our grant submission to the NIHR RfPB stream, in which we propose testing the feasibility of successfully identifying and recruiting patients and delivering the intervention through the NHS. 

Using methods including online package development, PPI consultations and expert panel reviews, we aim to create a final specification, addressing any technical problems so that the intervention can go forward to trial.
