Abstract

BackgroundThis paper describes the process of developing specifically designed web-based maternity information for women with type 1 diabetes.

MethodsA participatory design was used and the information was evaluated in seven stages by researchers, professional experts and users. All steps of the development process were noted in an online logbook.

ResultsThe information developed gradually and its contents were reviewed by nurse-midwives, nurses and physicians specializing in different key areas including diabetes care, paediatrics, obstetrics and breastfeeding, a clinical dietician and mothers with type 1 diabetes. The draft was reviewed in regard to its cultural suitability and the information material was adjusted to meet quality criterions. Finally, the text was adapted for a lay audience.

ConclusionsUsing participatory design required time and resources, however; it proved a functional way of producing appropriate information for the target group.
