An unbiased, independent panel developed a statement of the 2013 NIH Consensus Development Conference: Diagnosing Gestational Diabetes Mellitus which summarizes the conference and identifies future research priorities.
The evidence report for the NIH Consensus Development Conference: Diagnosing Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is based on research conducted by the University of Alberta Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) under contract to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The EPC performed a systematic review of the relevant scientific literature on GDM prior to developing the evidence report and assessment. The information in this report is intended to help health care decisionmakers—patients and clinicians, health system leaders, and policymakers, among others—make well-informed decisions and thereby improve the quality of health care services.

Program and Abstracts Book
The purpose for the program and abstract book for the NIH Consensus Development Conference: Diagnosing Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is to provide an overview of key information that will be useful to conference attendees. Such items include the GDM conference background information, the agenda, a list of key people involved in the conference, featured speakers’ abstracts, upcoming conferences hosted by the NIH Office of Disease Prevention, and the history of the consensus development conference. This resource can also be used by people who are unable to attend and are seeking information on the conference content.
Program and Abstracts Supplement
Due to Hurricane Sandy, the NIH Consensus Development Conference: Diagnosing Gestational Diabetes Mellitus originally scheduled for October, 2012, was postponed and rescheduled for March 4-6, 2013. This supplement to the program and abstract book was developed to reflect any changes to the agenda and contact information for panelists, speakers, and conference staff.
