call objectives
Call Objectives

At the end of this conference call, participants will be able to:

  • Identify which Practicing Safety (PS) tools were reported to be the most useful in each of the 3 bundles
  • Recall at least 2 qualitative themes uncovered by post in-depth interviews
  • Analyze the office supports and systems that enable successful adoption of interventions
  • List at least 2 lessons learned from the QuIIN PS project
  • Test 1 or more tools with your own practice team to improve assessment/screening and anticipatory guidance for 1 or more of the PS focused topics
practicing safety the need
Practicing Safety: The Need
  • In 2006, an estimated 906,000 children were found to be victims of child abuse and neglect in the United States and Puerto Rico*
    • 64.1% were victims of neglect
    • 16.0% were physically abused
    • Children under the age of 4 continue to have the highest rate of victimization
    • Over one-quarter (30%) of the 906,000 victims were under the age of 4
    • Nearly 80% (79.4%) of perpetrators of child maltreatment were parents.
  • Pediatricians are in a unique position to address topics that can prevent child abuse and neglect
    • Pediatricians can see a child a total of 13 times for well child visits before age 4
    • Literature documents the high value that parents place on the education and advice shared with them by their pediatrician

practicing safety project aims
Practicing Safety Project Aims
  • Improve assessment/screening and anticipatory guidance by pediatric physicians and staff with parents/caregivers on topics of crying, maternal depression, toilet training, and discipline (to 100% by November 2009).
  • Test use of the Practicing Safety tools for education by pediatric physicians and staff with parents/caregivers on topics of crying, maternal depression, toilet training, and discipline.
  • Test the usefulness of the Practicing Safety tools and ease of use of the tools; and determine strategies for use of the tools.
practicing safety project methods
Practicing Safety Project Methods
  • Modified Learning Collaborative with 14 teams (lead physician plus 2 others from practice)
  • Model for Improvement; Plan, Do, Study, Act; small tests of change
  • Prework period (April 2009)
    • Baseline chart review
    • Pre-Inventory Survey
  • Learning Session 1(May 2009)
  • Action Period (June-November 2009)
    • Monthly Chart Review/Chart Documentation Forms
      • 10 charts of patients at the 2-month visit (infant and mother/caregiver bundles)
      • 10 charts of patients at the 18-month visit (toddler bundle)
    • Monthly Progress Reports
    • Monthly Team Calls
    • Review of Run Charts to guide improvements (posted to a Project Workspace Web site)
  • Follow-up (November 2009)
    • Post-Inventory Survey

  • Increased awareness
  • Challenges
  • Unanticipated positive outcomes
practicing safety lessons learned
Practicing Safety Lessons Learned
  • Practices need guidance in order to incorporate practice-based protocols that address child abuse and neglect prevention as part of well-child care
  • Pediatricians, once supported and mentored, are excited to offer families more concrete and systematic guidance in these areas
  • Practicing Safety can inform more successful implementation of enhanced care and assists practices in establishing a medical home
  • Parents are receptive to guidance on these topics and believe these issues are of significant concern
  • Practicing Safety provided an opportunity for enhanced clinical education for physicians, nurses, residents, etc
practicing safety lessons learned con t
Practicing Safety Lessons Learned (con’t.)
  • Practices tailored tools to fit their patient population.
    • Some practices incorporated tools for more than the project prescribed well-child visit based on age.
    • Some practices collapsed the suggested “green” and “yellow” assessment questions and anticipatory guidance and used both levels routinely as primary prevention topics at well-visits for all of their families with children in the targeted age ranges
  • Some practices found a need for multi-lingual, low literacy and more graphic materials for parents
  • Just participating in PS raised awareness of child abuse and neglect issues for all roles in the pediatric office
  • Chart documentation is key to determining improvements in care
practicing safety lessons learned con t29
Practicing Safety Lessons Learned (con’t.)
  • It is important to have an engaged practice champion to succeed & leadership support, teams enhance practice change
  • Some practices found it challenging to promote the bigger picture of their work to the rest of the practice physicians and staff – the importance of testing and measuring prior to full-on implementation
  • Administrative and clinical priorities compete with making change (H1N1, EMR implementation, staff turnover)
  • Coding and reimbursement remain a challenge
  • The project motivated practices to link with community.
  • Lastly, practices would like more info on diffusion.
