WORKSHOP: Salutogenic intervention for enabling healthy eating in adults with type 2 diabetes at the 6th international conference on salutogenesis

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, courseAcademic


The aim is to discuss the questions raised in the Position paper on what constitutes a salutogenic intervention by using a concrete example of a salutogenic intervention that aims to enable healthy eating in adults with type 2 diabetes (the SALUD program). The SALUD program focusses on the complexity of integrating healthy eating in everyday-life and is based on a systematic review on salutogenic-oriented interventions and on life-course interviews with adults with type 2 diabetes. Life-course interviews provide information on how everyday-life experiences led to turning points for (un)healthful eating over the life-course. Examining turning points for (un)healthful eating may provide a better understanding of how historical, personal and social contexts are intertwined. Interventions embracing the everyday-life context are expected to facilitate better long-term health effects. We have published about the development of the SALUD program and expect to test the SALUD program in the fall of 2021.
