This presentation will illustrate the potential of population risk tools to inform decisions regarding interventions that will optimally reduce population and socioeconomic inequities in diabetes in Canada. A quantitative example will be presented using modelled diabetes estimates from the validated Diabetes Population Risk Tool (DPoRT) applied to 2013–14 Canadian Community Health Survey respondents. A number of potential case scenarios will be presented and implications for the relative effectiveness of different interventions discussed.
