Summary BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) increases the risk of adverse short- and long-term outcomes, including development of type 2 diabetes. The US Diabetes Prevention Program demonstrates this risk can be halved with an intensive health behavior change intervention in women with pre-diabetes averaging 12 years since a GDM pregnancy. In recent years, the number of studies looking at changing the behaviors of women with previous GDM closer to the time of delivery has steadily grown, but reported outcomes vary and most studies are not long enough or large enough to examine incident diabetes. This initiative aims to develop a core outcome set (COS) for interventions seeking to prevent diabetes after pregnancy (DAP) in both women with prior GDM and their families. METHODS: The COS-DAP project will use established COS methodology, in four stages: (1) a systematic literature review of DAP prevention intervention studies following GDM; (2) discussion and cataloguing of outcomes measured and implementation components at an investigator meeting; (3) a two-round online Delphi survey aimed at prioritizing the identified outcomes; and (4) a consensus meeting with key stakeholders to review, discuss, and refine suitable COS measures, using nominal group technique. DISCUSSION: COS-DAP aims to develop a COS for health behavior change interventions to prevent DAP. The COS is expected to enhance opportunities for comparison of future studies and allow for better synthesis of the effects. The inclusion of multiple stakeholder perspectives will increase the final COSs applicability and relevance. TRIAL REGISTRATION: Comet Initiative, COMET 1083; PROSPERO, CRD42018084853 .
