Role of Diabetes Specialist Midwife

Up to Antenatal Corticosteroids to Reduce Neonatal Morbidity (RCOG Green-top 7) - Sonia Clark
November 30. 2011
Anita Brockbank

My Trust is in the process of appointing a Diabetic Specialist Midwife, a brand new post, which I will be interviewed for next week. Would anyone be willing to advise me on the best places to research for this please?

My priorities are to research the political agenda and government papers, NICE, NSF, RCOG guidelines, CEMACE; specifically aiming to show my passion for the area, wider public health strategic approach, looking at gestational diabetes (presentation title focusses on this) specifically, but also obesity and the local population's inequality and deprivation, from a regional and national perspective. Am I on the right track?

Is there any summary of the Diabetes Specialist Midwife Annual Meeting from October I could access to get an idea of current issues?

Many thanks,

Hi Anita

It sounds like you are definately on the right tracks and will need to look at your local population and assess the needs looking at what service is already provided and what benefits you will offer the women and the service.  

We have produced an RCM document " Lead Midwife in Diabetes, Standards, Role and Competencies" in partnership with NHS diabetes. I have the programme for the last annual meeting if you want to email me on jane.obrien@stockport.nhs.uk. If you want to ring me 01614195278 I am around today.
