National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) audit report 2018 | The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership
The National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) audit measures the quality of antenatal care and pregnancy outcomes for women with pre-gestational diabetes.
This is the first year that a Quality Improvement Collaborative (QIC) has been incorporated into the NPID programme for 2018/19 with the aim of focusing on improvement activity.
Some of the key findings include:
- Overall 7 out of 8 women were not well prepared for pregnancy
- There has been an increase in the rate of admissions with hypoglycaemia for women with type 1 diabetes
- Almost one in two babies had complications related to maternal diabetes which is mostly the result of large for gestational age (LGA) babies
- Admissions to neonatal units are more common than in the general population.
