'Searching for Real-World Effectiveness of Health Care Innovations: Scoping Study of Social Prescribing for Diabetes' (Pilkington et al, Feb 2017)

=== Summary ===å

Our study revealed the varied models of social prescribing and nonmedical, community-based services available to people with type 2 diabetes and the extent of evaluation of these, which would not have been achieved by searching databases alone. The findings of this scoping study do not prove that social prescribing is an effective measure for people with type 2 diabetes in the United Kingdom, but can be used to inform future evaluation and contribute to the development of the evidence base for social prescribing.
