The NHS Long Term Plan (www.longtermplan.nhs.uk/) launched in January 2019 states: 'by 2020/21, all pregnant women with type 1 diabetes will be offered continuous glucose monitoring, helping to improve neonatal outcomes’. This recommendation is based on clinical evidence from the CONCEPTT trial that real-time Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is associated with improved maternal glucose control and significant reductions in neonatal complications attributed to maternal hyperglycaemia. Importantly the benefits were comparable across all study sites, in women using pumps and multiple daily injections and in women with higher HbA1c levels in early pregnancy. The health economic analyses demonstrated that newborns of mothers using CGM has fewer and shorter neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admissions, CGM is cost-saving for the NHS.

 

The aim of this workshop is to share best practice for starting, managing and optimising real-time Continuous Glucose Monitoring (RT-CGM) and intermittent/flash glucose monitoring in pregnancy. It will support antenatal health care staff to deliver safe, effective and high quality care of pregnant women using CGM.

The workshop will be led by Professor Helen Murphy (Professor of Medicine (Diabetes and Antenatal Care - Norwich Medical School)

Topics to be included

  • Getting started: CGM set up in pregnancy (alarms, alerts and calibration tests)
  • Responding to high and low sensor glucose values
  • Reflection: Reflection on real time data, Reflection on clinic downloads
  • Tips for established CGM users
