The aim of this position paper is to examine the case for supporting behaviour change in pre-diabetic obese people in order to improve their health. The paper sets out the background and motivation for supporting behaviour change before outlining the relevant literature in this health and wellbeing area. The paper then explores the feasibility of SmartLife - a patient-driven application involving healthcare practitioners and peer support interaction with a focus on failure-free, positive reinforcement, patient empowerment and wellbeing.
