Safe pre-pregnancy care in diabetes - PROCEED case study
This case study describes Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's project to improve pre-pregnancy care (PPC) in patients with diabetes.
The project involved raising awareness of the need for PPC amongst both women and health professionals, including pharmacists, SureStart health visitors and clinicians in the fertility clinic.
An innovative model of PPC for women with diabetes was developed, in consultation with women with diabetes. This resulted in a community-based model of care tailored to individual needs.
