Aims: Muslims can choose to fast during Ramadan. Guidelines exist for providing clinical
support for this group, but there is a lack of culturally tailored diabetes management interventions
to provide guidance. The study evaluates the implementation of a programme
developed to meet this need.
Methods: A Safer Ramadan is a multi-faceted package comprising a self-management and
community awareness programme, and healthcare professional training. Implementation
of the programme took place in two cities in the UK, prior to Ramadan 2017. Uptake and
attendance were determined, and qualitative interviews and focus groups were completed
with people attending the programme, and with various stakeholders involved in implementation
Results: Success of the implementation varied and engagement by primary care was limited.
Three central themes emerged from the interviews highlighting barriers and facilitators
of the programme implementation. These were the referral pathway, programme
content and feedback on the delivery of the programme.
Conclusions: Provision of interventions that provide support and education for Muslims
during Ramadan was implemented in communities and valued by GPs and practice nurses.
However, heavy workloads to support delivery made it difficult for practices to engage. Recommendations
for future delivery of the programme indicate that greater attention should
be given to marketing and its supporting practices. Furthermore, training for practice
nurses to support patients prior to Ramadan and provision of funding is required.
