1 Quality Assurance Initiatives in Psychiatric and Psychotherapeutic Care for Depression Experiences from the South-German QA project and the German Competence Network on Depression Martin Härter and Petra Sitta Stuttgart,

2 Regulations for QI SGB V § 135a (Abs. 1), 2000 Care providers have an obligation for quality assurance and improvement along standards of evidence based medicine. SGB V § 135a (Abs. 2) Health care providers are obligated to participate in external quality assurance measures, especially if improvement of outcome quality is intended. SGB V § 135a (Abs. 2) Hospitals and other health institutions should implement and improve internal quality management, that guarantees the quality of care by a system of precise procedures and systematic measures and helps to improve it continuously.

Competence Networks a)Schizophrenia b)Depression c)Substance abuse d)Dementia 2000

4 Quality Assurance in Depression - Background - Quality Assurance in Inpatient Treatment of Depression in Baden-Württemberg (Study Period: ) Work Group: Dr. R. Metzger, Bad Schussenried (speaker since 1997) Prof. Dr. R.-D. Stieglitz, Basel (2. speaker, ) PD Dr. Dr. M. Härter, Freiburg (2. speaker since 2000) Dr. Ch. Hornstein, Wiesloch PD Dr. F.

Berger, Freiburg Support: Landesärztekammer Stuttgart

5 Project 3 Quality Management in Treatment of Depression Subprojects 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 (Study Period: )

6 Aims Improvement of diagnostic and therapeutic quality Development of process and outcome quality indicators Internal quality assurance and external comparison of hospitals (bench marking) Implementation and evaluation of quality manage- ment structures Transfer into regular care ?

7 Clinics South German QA project: n = 24 all psychiatric clinics in Baden-Württemberg Competence Network Depression: n = 10 5 clinics in North Rhine Westfalia 5 clinics in Baden-Würrtemberg and Bavaria

8 Service Profiling Process Outcome Admission Discharge Course of treatment Sociodemographic characteristics (e.g. age, sex, marital status, level of education, job situtation, living conditions, mother tongue) D iagnostics (ICD-10, indication for inpatient treatment, reason for relapse/ disorder, family history of mental disorder) Severity of disorder (HAMD, CGI, AMDP, BDI, GAF, attempted suicide, risk to others) Chronicity of disorder (duration, number of in- and outpatient treatments) Diagnostics (blood tests, ECG, EEG) Pharmacotherapy (substance, dosage indication, duration etc.) Psychotherapy (units of individual or group psychotherapy) Other treatments (e.g. occupational therapy, music therapy) Incidents (compliance, problems in psychotherapy, threats, attempted suicide ) Therapeutic effectiveness Change of psychopatholoy (GAF, AMDP, CGI, HAMD, BDI etc.) Patient satisfaction (ZUF- 8, BBA) Duration of inpatient treatment Changes (job situation, personal situation, living conditions etc.) Quality indicators / Patient Characteristics

9 Assessment Tools

10 ICD-10 Diagnosis of depressive disorder Yes NoExclusion from the study Admission Day 1-3 Process (weekly) Discharge Day X Patient: BDI Therapist in charge: DOCU-A/ HAMD Therapist in charge: DOCU-P Patient: BDI, BBA, ZUF-8 Therapist in charge: DOCU-D/ HAMD Change in Diagnosis? Yes Study design


12 Patient Characteristics

13 (Multiple choice) Freiburg (2001), n= 383 Indication for inpatient treatment (%)

14 Indication correct ? Severity at Admission - CGI (%)


16 % Diagnostics (Freiburg 2001, n= 401)

17 Medication

18 Psychotherapy

19 Problems ? Clinical Global Impression Discharge (%)

20 Admission Discharge mean (SD) mean (SD) Freiburg 24,7 (11,6) 12,1 (11,1) (2001) N = 210 Baden-Württemberg27,3 (11,2) 11,1 (9,8) (1999) N= 1587 Baden-Württemberg25,7 (11,4) 10,7 (9,4) (2000) N= 1157 Psychopathology - Beck Depression Inventory

21 Duration of Inpatient Treatment

22 Baden-Württemberg: n=473, categories >5%; BBA The most important for me was Evaluation of treatment by patients

23 Client Satisfaction Scale: ZUF-8


25 Summary structural quality indicators fo inpatient treatment stronger control for indication (inpatient treatment) necessary process quality comparison of diagnostic procedures (necessity?) long mean duration of inpatient treatment remarkable differences in medication and psychotherapy relevance of psychotherapy for patients outcome quality high effectiveness for inpatient treatment relevant percentage of unchanged patients (chronic depression) high patient satisfaction

26 Quality Management Projects in Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Conclusions: + QA in psychiatry is possible + Attempt to implement QA area-wide / regional + Participation of all psychiatric hospitals in Baden-Württemberg + Development of documentation forms + Development and implementation of the concept of benchmarking - no project evaluation - representativity of data is limited (selection of patients?) - data only at admission and discharge - low establishment of QM-measures in clinics - clinical relevance ? - transfer in regular care ?

27 Exp. group: 5 hospitals Contr. group: 5 hospitals Intervention Baseline Post -intervention treatment/evaluation T0T1 Training; Involvement of QM-structures, areas of intervention (benchmarking based) 2002 T0T1 T2 Continuous training Ongoing benchmarkings n=150 pat./hospital Initial Bench- markings No intervention 2003 Step 3Step 4Step 5Step 6 T0T1T2 T0T1T2 3.5/3.6 Time schedule - Main study

28 Quality Management Projects in Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Preliminary Conclusions: + planned total-survey in clinics + reduced and adapted documentation materials + testing the effect of QM-structures - motivation of staff, documentation load for physicians - data for clinical decision making ?
