Willis A, Gray L, Khunti K. Ensuring health equality amid the great diabetes epidemic: Translating the leicester self-assessment risk score. J Diabetes Nurs. 2016;20(10):374-5.
There has been a rise in popularity of self-assessment risk scores for chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, which allow individuals to self-assess their own risk of developing a condition and take steps to reduce this risk if necessary. One such tool is the Leicester Self-Assessment Risk Score (Gray et al, 2010), which has been developed to predict the risk of type 2 diabetes in multi-ethnic populations.
