Pre-conception care for women with diabetes (K-13-017-SE)
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Aug 201429 Feb 2016NIHR National Institute for Health Research

Rates of diabetes in pregnancy are increasing rapidly; a trend that looks likely to continue. Diabetes can lead to serious complications for women and babies during pregnancy and birth. Pre-conception care is known to have a positive impact on these health risks; however, the uptake can be low and it is not clear how improve this. Why do some women not access pre-conception services? Understanding that women do not always ‘plan’ a pregnancy will be part of the solution. This research aims to review the existing literature in the field and conduct empirical work to understand why women with pre-existing diabetes do, or do not, access pre-conception care, focusing specifically on the factors that facilitate or discourage uptake. The research also aims to investigate the views of staff and stakeholders in this area to explore their views on existing and future provision of services. This research is funded by the NIHR’s HTA programme and is being conducted by The Open University in collaboration with Birmingham Heartlands Hospital and University of Birmingham.

Contraceptive choices for women with learning disabilities’ is an Open University research project, supported by a grant from Open Society Foundations (Grant No: OR2014-12989). This inclusive project set out to explore women’s contraceptive decision-making and sought to include women with mild to moderate learning disabilities as well as women with high support needs. Between December 2014 and April 2015 we interviewed 19 women living in several locations across the United Kingdom.

MacIntyre Commissioning for Compassion
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Mar 201430 Apr 2015MacIntyre

MacIntyre Care has, in recent years, rolled out ‘Great Interactions’, a comprehensive change management initiative to ensure that front line staff focus on the quality of the relationship between them and service users, their families, advocates and friends. In addition to training, this initiative has encompassed personality profiling, changes to recruitment practice, to appraisals and to first line manager practice; and tools for reflective practice. The Theory of Change is that workforce ‘behaviour’ rather than ‘values’ is the key to increasing choice and control in the lives of people with learning disabilities. This project evaluates the impact of ‘Great Interactions’ to provide evidence to influence commissioners to move away from commissioning based on cost and risk aversion to outcomes based commissioning. To accomplish this, and using a range of research methods including questionnaires, interviews and observation, the project focuses on the following: • What success looks like • The impact of ‘Great Interactions’ training on service users, families and staff

Using a rich mixture of media including audio, video, photographs, illustrations and text, the Open University research team has worked with MacIntyre to develop an inclusive, interactive and accessible website that celebrates the history of MacIntyre and records their history within the context of the broader changes in learning disability policies and practices.
