Description of innovation
Around 5% of UK pregnancies are diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which is associated with increased perinatal morbidity and a seven-fold risk of developing type 2 diabetes in later life.

‘GDM: Things you need to know, but maybe don’t!’ aims to improve the patient experience of women diagnosed with GDM. Originally produced as a DVD in four languages (English, Urdu, Arabic and Somali) and later converted to a website, it was evaluated in a randomised controlled trial among 150 multi-ethnic women with newly diagnosed GDM. It is now used routinely in patient education.
