What was this research project about? We aimed to understand why there are low rates of postpartum screening after gestational diabetes (GDM) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, and what might help to improve this. 1. We interviewed seven (7) women who had gestational diabetes to understand barriers and enablers to postpartum screening. 2. Twenty (20) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers came to focus groups to identify strategies to improve postpartum care. 3. Twenty-four (24) other service providers (doctors, nurses, midwives) attended workshops to discuss strategies and how to implement them.
