Brief summary

Objectives: The approved project aimed to develop an effective educational program for use by Australian women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and by health professionals involved in their care. Educational materials from this project include an information booklet, a web-based program that can be accessed at an information kiosk (touch screen computer) at the hospital diabetes clinic, home PCs, and mobile technologies. Educational materials are initially available in English and Vietnamese languages. Programs contain culturally appropriate information such as typical food for the different ethnic groups, relevant in the area.
Methods: Pregnant women aged 18-45 years with GDM who have a singleton pregnancy, are eligible to participate in this study. Women who agree to participate in the study will be given a participant information sheet and consent form. Participants will be recruited from the Pregnancy diabetes Clinic, at Sunshine Hospital and introduced to the GDM educational modules using the touch screen computer located in the clinic. Participants will also be given the URL to access to the program and they can learn the modules at home by using their home PCs, mobile phones, or tablets. At the end of the 4 weeks programs, participants will be asked to complete the questionnaire. The final result will be analysed by using statistic software SPSS v. 20. An appropriate statistical analysis will be used to find out the effectiveness of a web-based educational program on women's knowledge of GDM, including the influence of the program on weights of the women after delivery, baby weights and blood glucose level after delivery. The biostatistician will be consulted when the study is published.
