This project aimed: a) to investigate the social representations of diabetes, inheritance and genetics amongst family members with familial diabetes risk; b) to explore the utility of social representations theory in explaining identity positioning within and between self-defining sub-groups (e.g. families); c)  to feed back findings into clinical recommendations for family history interventions with ‘at risk’ families.
