Project Details


NIHR funded study to explore the feasibility of undertaking a clinical trial of strict vs permissive blood glucose control in labour.

Layman's description

Our goal is to design a clinical study comparing blood sugar monitoring strategies in labour for women with diabetes. We will then ask women and experienced doctors and midwives during a telephone
interviews whether, hypothetically, they would be willing to be involved in such a study, and what they feel the barriers would be.

This study is being led by the University of Nottingham. The UK Audit and Research Collaborative in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (national lead: M.Rimmer, Edinburgh) will undertake a national audit of maternal intrapartum glycemic control to contribute to this project and understand UK wide practice on intrapartum glycemic control.
