Invitation to the launch of the new Planning a Family - Diabetes Notes, 17 October 2012
We would like to invite you to the launch of the new Planning a Family - Diabetes Notes.The notes have been developed by the Perinatal Institute together with the regional Diabetes in Pregnancy Advisory Group (DiPAG). These are in response to evidence from the West Midlands Confidential Enquiry into Diabetes in Pregnancy report (PDF 1.1MB), which identified two thirds of women with diabetes had received suboptimal preconception care (ch 3.4; Key finding 3, p90).
The objective of these new notes is to provide a standardised document which prompts evidence based care whilst also offering women information, advice and engagement in planning their own care. The notes reflect current evidence and best practice (WANDA and Perinatal Institute: Guidelines for the Management of Diabetes in Pregnancy), including:
- NICE Diabetes in Pregnancy guidelines
- NHSLA/CNST standards
- CEMACH recommendations
- NSF for Diabetes
- Regional recommendations and guidelines
In addition, the newly developed series of patient information leaflets will be presented. These can be used as part of individualised care plans and ongoing advice offered by healthcare professionals for women with pre-existing diabetes, and also for women who develop gestational diabetes in pregnancy.
Your participation is encouraged at this launch on Wednesday 17th October 2012, 10am-12 noon, at the Perinatal Institute in Birmingham - see the event flyer for more details (PDF 211.6KB).
