Activities

Summary

Outline—Part A


Introduction l.jpg

Irrational medicine use is widespread and results in problems—

Poor patient outcome

High cost of inappropriate medicine use

Increased risk of ADRs

Emergence of antimicrobial resistance

Measuring medicine use problems is the first step to improving use

Introduction


Methods to investigate medicine use l.jpg

Indicator study methods problems

Use data collected at the individual level—patient, health facility

Data insufficient to judge appropriateness of a medicine for a specific diagnosis

Aggregate data methods

Use routine data (e.g., stock records) not collected at the individual patient level

Give an overview of medicine use and can highlight problem areas

In-depth investigation of medicine use

Prescription audit, patient record review

Drug use evaluation (DUE)

Qualitative methods to understand causes of a medicine use problem

Methods to Investigate Medicine Use


Indicators for health care facilities 1 l.jpg

Measure specific aspects of medicine use and health provider activities in a hospital or health center

Provide information to health care managers concerning medicine use, prescribing habits, and important aspects of patient care to compare or monitor facilities over time

Indicators for Health Care Facilities (1)


Indicators for health care facilities 2 l.jpg

Characteristics of sound indicators activities in a hospital or health center

Relevant

Easily generated and measured

Reliable

Valid

Action-oriented

Indicators for Health Care Facilities (2)


Indicators for health care facilities 3 l.jpg

Use of indicators activities in a hospital or health center

Determine where medicine use problems may exist—when an indicator study shows an extreme result, the DTC can investigate and, as necessary, take action to improve the situation.

Provide a monitoring mechanism

Motivate health care providers to improve and follow established standards

Indicators for Health Care Facilities (3)


Who indicators for phc l.jpg

Developed by INRUD and WHO activities in a hospital or health center

Used for assessing health care and medicine use for primary health care (PHC) in dispensaries, clinics or hospitals

Prescribing indicators

Patient care Indicators

Facility indicators

Complementary medicine use indicators

WHO Indicators for PHC


Prescribing indicators phc l.jpg

WHO/INRUD health facility prescribing indicators activities in a hospital or health center

Average number of medicines per encounter

% of medicines prescribed by generic name

% of encounters with an antibiotic prescribed

% of encounters with an injection prescribed

% of medicines prescribed which are from the essential medicines list or formulary list

Prescribing Indicators—PHC


Prescription 1 l.jpg
Prescription 1 activities in a hospital or health center


Prescription 2 l.jpg

Prescription 4 l.jpg

Prescription 6 l.jpg
Prescription 6 activities in a hospital or health center


Patient care indicators phc l.jpg

WHO/INRUD health facility patient care indicators activities in a hospital or health center

Average consultation time

Average dispensing times

% of medicines actually dispensed

% of medicines that are adequately labeled

% of patients who know how to take their medicines

Patient Care Indicators—PHC


Health facility indicators phc l.jpg

WHO/INRUD health facility indicators activities in a hospital or health center

Availability of essential medicine list or formulary

Availability of key set of indicator medicines

Availability of standard treatment guideline (STG)

Health Facility Indicators—PHC


Complementary indicators phc l.jpg

WHO/INRUD medicine use indicators with less standardization and less experience in actual use

% of patients treated without medicines

Average medicine costs per encounter

% of medicine cost spent on antibiotics

% of medicine cost spent on injections

% of prescriptions in accordance with STG

% of patients satisfied with care provided

% of facilities with access to impartial information

Complementary Indicators—PHC


Performing an indicator study 1 l.jpg

Determine objectives, priorities, and indicators and less experience in actual use

Determine study design according to objectives

Monitoring over time, comparing facilities

Cross-sectional survey, time series

Evaluating interventions

Randomized controlled trial, pre/post with control, time series

Define indicators and data collection procedures

Pilot-test procedures

Performing an Indicator Study (1)


Performing an indicator study 2 l.jpg

Train data collectors and less experience in actual use

Randomly select facilities (at least 20 if possible) in the region from which to collect data

Obtain approximately 30 medicine use encounters for each facility (100 if only one facility is chosen)

Analyze data

Provide results to DTC for evaluation and follow-up

Performing an Indicator Study (2)


Results of indicator studies l.jpg

Results can be used as follows and less experience in actual use—

Describing current treatment practices

Comparing the performance of individual facilities or practitioners

Periodic monitoring and supervision of specific medicine use behaviors

Identifying potential medicine problems that affect patient care

Assessing the impact of an intervention

Hospital antimicrobial indicators 1 developed and being field tested by msh l.jpg

Designed to evaluate and improve and less experience in actual use

antimicrobial use

Facility indicators (four indicators)

Existence of STG and a formulary with approved antimicrobials

Availability of a key set of antimicrobials

Average number of days that this key set of antimicrobials are out of stock over 12 months

Expenditure on antimicrobial medicines as a percentage of total hospital medicine costs

Hospital Antimicrobial Indicators (1)(Developed and being field-tested by MSH)


Hospital antimicrobial indicators 2 l.jpg

Activities 1 and 2


Summary l.jpg

A major function of a DTC is to identify medicine use problems and to implement corrective measures

Performing an indicator study is useful method to—

Identify medicine use problems at the individual patient level

Monitor medicine use by prescribers

Evaluate the impact of interventions
