### Scottish Stroke Audit

3rd National Meeting

7th Dec 04

• NHS QIS funded audit - Oct 02 - 05

• Original plan - 6 to 10 hospitals

• Impact of CHD & Stroke strategy

• NHS QIS standards and visits

• Comparisons between hospitals

• Control charts

• Demonstration of real time data capture system

• Audit of swallow screening

• Update on “MCNs on the Web”

• Identify variation in “performance” and to raise questions about cause of variation

• Identify methods which increase performance?

• Highlight services requiring more investment or re design

• Method of collection data

• Definitions, case ascertainment and audit period

• Method of analysing data

• Which numerator and denominator?

• Chance

• Actual performance of service

• Proportions (%)

• 95% confidence intervals

• Means and medians

• Inter quartile range

• Numerator / Denominator = Proportion

• 60 enter stroke unit

• Proportion is 60/100 = 0.6 or 60%

• We have had problems with denominators

• Is denominator 60 or 100?

• If admit 100 stroke patients

• 60 enter the stroke unit

• therefore 60% managed in a stroke unit

• if half get into stroke unit within a day

• % admitted to SU <1day = 50% or 30%

• NHS QIS want 30% figure

• Measure the proportion entering your stroke unit once

• Calculate the 95% Confidence intervals

• Measure the proportion a further 100 times and one would expect 95 estimates to lie within the 95% confidence intervals.

No. of

patients

Mean = 10

Median = 10

Length of stay in Days

Mean = 10

Median = 10

No of

people.

Length of stay (days)

Mean = total no. of days / total no. of people

Median = LOS where half the people have longer ones and

half shorter ones

A skewed distributione.g. length of stay in acute stroke unit

No.

Mean = 7.3

Median = 6

Days

A very skewed distributione.g. delay to CT scan

No.

Mean = 4.9

Median = 3

Days

No.

Mean = 10

Median = 10

Days

Interquartile range (IQR)

(half the patients are included)

### Comparisons between hospitals

A few hospitals which are currently collecting data are not included because too few data are available.

### Inpatients

• Longer period will provide more patients and more precise estimates

• Longer period will include older data

• Recent short period will not include patients still in hospital - therefore may give biased estimates

Ninewells estimates will have wide Confidence intervals

so differences are more likely to be due to chance

No. of admissions per year Group 1

At Ninewells may be missing cases - not identified or

simply not yet discharged

No. of admissions per year -Group 4

The estimate in your hand out for St Johns is incorrect

Length of Stay in HospitalMean MedianGroup 1

Patients with longer LOS in Ninewells not yet discharged

Why is LOS shorter in ARI than Edinburgh??

Imprecise estimates because small numbers

Shetland a different model of service?

18 beds

Note the 95% CI vary with amount of data collected

35 beds

10 beds

Proportions admitted to Stroke Unit – Group 2

Ayr & Crosshouse are doing well! - ? chance because only 3 month

ARI seem to be having problems getting scans

Delays in Ayr and Crosshouse

Raigmore and Victoria Hospital Kirkaldy having problems

Shetland understandably not scanning all patients

Does ARI perform well because they don’t bother to wait for CT?

May be bad luck because of small numbers but odd given excellent

access to SU & CT - are they giving an alternative antiplatelet drug?

Proportion of ischaemic stroke discharged on secondary preventionGroup 1

X

Ninewells get most patients on triple therapy

Proportion of ischaemic stroke discharged on secondary prevention - Group 4

VHK and QMH stand out

Proportion of ischaemic stroke discharged on secondary prevention - Group 5

Statins not used in Western Isles

Warfarin prevention - Group 5

Antiplatelet

Proportions of pts with ischaemic stroke and AF discharged on Warfarin – Group 1

Very varied use of warfarin in AF

Proportion of ischaemic stroke in AF given Aspirin or Warfarin– Group 2

Warfarin

Antiplatelet

Where columns add up to >100 then combination used?

Something odd about data from Lanarkshire

### Neurovascular clinics Warfarin– Group 5

Delays from Assessment to Duplex (days) Warfarin– Group 5

St Johns reported 3 year data - now sorted

Ninewells & RIE get Duplex before clinic and only few patients

Delays from Assessment to Warfarin– Group 5Brain scan for stroke (days)

In some places scans are obtained before clinic

Conclusions dipyridamole

• We have seen considerable variation in the processes of care

• We need to understand these to strive to provide the best possible service for all

• No hospital can be complacent - there is room for improvement everywhere
