One of the main recommendations of the St Vincent Declaration was the following: 'Achieve pregnancy outcome in diabetic women that approximates to that of nondiabetic women'. In consequence, WHO/IDF guidelines for care and management of pregnant diabetic women have been proposed by an invited group of international experts in the field.14 The document brought attention to the important differences in the provision of diabetes and obstetrical care in different European countries. Specifically, the relevance of intensive metabolic care before conception, during pregnancy and parturition, as well as the needs of special training and education of the diabetic women contemplating pregnancy, were addressed. For the purpose of developing the quality assurance program, a DiabCare BIS for diabetes and pregnancy was proposed by members of the WHO/IDF Working Group on Pregnancy Outcomes in the Diabetic Woman (Figure 53.5), with data fields addressing diabetes diagnosis, past obstetrical history, prepregnancy counseling, status at entering the specialized interdisciplinary clinic, maternal and newborn outcomes, and reclassification after pregnancy. The OBSQID (OBStetrical Quality Indicators and Data) Perinatal Aggregated Data (PAD) protocol, mainly focused on outcomes, represents a valid alternative proposed by the Quality of Care and Technologies Program, WHO-Europe being exploited for epidemiologic studies.
