  3. Problem • Low attendance rates at the Utah Neonatal Follow-Up Program (NFP) • Desire to know what is being done well in clinic • Desire to know what can be improved upon in clinic

  4. Goals • Identification of NFP attendance trends through quantitative data • Identification of NFP attendance barriers through qualitative data • Recommendations to the NFP team from research findings

  5. Quantitative Method • Current attendance trends were identified via data analysis of the NFP follow-up rates from the five largest referral Utah NICU facilities in 2011.

  6. Qualitative Method • Perceptions of program value • Identify potential barriers and solutions to NFP attendance • Baseline knowledge and value of program • Identify potential barriers and solutions to NFP attendance Family Focus Group (SLC & Ogden) Professional Focus Group (PCMC & McKay-Dee)

  14. Study Limitations • Lack of representation of target group families • Four focus groups with a small sample size • Lack of diversity

  15. NFP Attendance Barriers • Lack of education provided to families & NICU staff • Lack of communication between facilities • Lack of NFP and NICU communication • Distance of clinic locations • Medical vs. developmental priorities • Lack of parental understanding that development needs evaluation over time

  16. Recommendations for Improving NFP Attendance • Education provided to families & NICU staff • Communication between facilities • Improve NFP and NICU communication for family contact • Additional clinics

  17. Recommendations for Improving Clinic Satisfaction • Provide a NFP presentation to PCMC Grand Rounds • Feasibility of providers • Check off sheet and check out process • Post-appointment summary • Strategic communication plan • Scheduling consideration

  18. Suggestions for Further Study • Broaden the diversity of the focus groups • Target participants who are referred to the NFP, but do not attend or have not completed the program • Gather data from community pediatricians

  19. Trainee Recommendations for the URLEND Program • Exposure to and problem-solving of systemic, billing and policy issues related to interdisciplinary clinics • Increase opportunity and exposure to clinic administration and operations • Additional emphasis on diagnoses i.e. CP/Down’s Syndrome • Increase family interaction in an informal setting • Increase clinical sites for URLEND trainees
