GooD4Mum aims to prevent, among women with past gestational diabetes (GDM), progression to type 2 diabetes. It is a general practice-based cluster randomised controlled trial (RCT) to address system, practice and individual level barriers to implementation of guideline recommendations to increase diabetes screening and lifestyle prevention program uptake in mothers who have had gestational diabetes. We are using the GRHANITE® research data extraction tool and our expertise in de-identified record linkage to link data from the National Diabetes Register NDR and University of Melbourne’s Patron de-identified general practice data. We will compare sensitivity of the national register versus GP records to identify women with past gestational diabetes. The RCT tests a new system for recalling women and trials a new diabetes prevention program.
