First experiences with- and impressions of a personalized lifestyle intervention for shiftworkers with Type 2 Diabetes, developed by TNO and implemented in an industrial work company with night shift workers. You will hear how the project started in collaboration with Tata Steel, where employees carry out heavy shift work until their old age. What opportunities and support were offered, who appeared to be supporter of the project and the participants. How did they stay motivated and on track for “the change in lifestyle to reverse diabetes in shift work”. On the basis of a sketch of the developments after the introduction of this lifestyle intervention study and on the basis of interviews with participants and counselors we try to give a lively picture of an intervention on the job.
