The Diabetes and Pregnancy PSP will focus on identifying the priority questions in relation to any of the following:
- women, their partners, babies, and families
- diabetes, including pre-existing diabetes of any type and subtype, and gestational diabetes
- the time before, during and after pregnancy, including short to long-term health outcomes
- screening, causes and prevention, diagnosis, management and treatment of diabetes
- physical, social, cultural, economic, and psychological aspects
- co-morbidities (other conditions as well as diabetes in pregnancy) and complications
- genetics, fertility and related aspects
- information, education and service improvement
- relevant to the UK population.
The PSP will exclude from its scope questions about:
- pregnancy uncertainties not specific to diabetes
- care of the baby on the neonatal unit
- questions or priorities without a UK focus or relevance
Please note the PSP will take a step-wise approach to defining the scope in that it will be led by the responses to the surveys throughout the process.
