The process and how you can take part

Over approximately 18 months we will work with women and their support networks (families, partners and friends) affected by diabetes in pregnancy, and health care professionals, to identify where little is known, or there are uncertainties about, health care and wellbeing in diabetes and pregnancy.

We will be following the well-established prioritisation process supported by the James Lind Alliance. There are three main stages:

  1. Gather a long list of uncertainties using an initial survey
  2. Interim Prioritisation. The long list will be sent out in a second survey to identify a shortlist of about 25 questions considered to be most important.
  3. A Final Prioritisation Workshop to order the shortlist and identify our final Top 10 priority research questions.

This initiative is the direct result of the involvement of the NPEU Diabetes in Pregnancy PPI group of women with lived experience of diabetes and pregnancy.
