Assessment of the Effect of Behavioral Change Strategies on Knowledge Translation and Pharmacist Interventions for Antimicrobial Stewardship: PIAS-KT Study Sukhjinder Sidhu Sean Gorman Richard Slavik Nicole Bruchet Sarah Murray Tasha Ramsey
Background Priority disease states are prevalent and associated with significant burden to patients and health system – ED visits, hospitalizations, prolonged length of stay Pharmacists resolving priority disease DTPs improves quality of drug therapy and reduces health care utilization and costs Makowsky MK, et al.

Background Disease state educational modules (DSEMs) for priority diseases were implemented to support pharmacists in providing high value interventions To guide interventions, key pharmacist interventions (KPIs) proven to reduce mortality, morbidity, health utilization were developed with DSEMs
Background AIMS study showed that DSEMs increased DSEM DTP and KPI resolution, but opportunity for improvement still exists DSEM-KT study showed that multifaceted behavioral change strategies improved IH pharmacist knowledge and care for heart failure Slavik RS, Slavik VC, Hamilton B.

1.Initiate appropriate antibiotics. 2.Discontinue empiric antibiotics that are not indicated. 3.De-escalate antibiotics based on C&S data and clinical response. 4.Perform IV to PO step-down of antibiotics. 5.Promote appropriate duration of antibiotic therapy. Background Pneumonia and UTI Key Pharmacist Interventions Interior Health Pharmacy Services
Objective To evaluate the impact of a multifaceted professional behavioral change strategy on IH pharmacist knowledge translation and interventions for pneumonia and UTI
Methods Design Prospective quasi-experimental, one group, pre/post study Setting Tertiary (KGH, RIH); regional (PRH, VJH, EKH, KBH); community (SOH, SLH, KLH, OMH, CMH) pharmacy departments across IH (July 1/13 to June 30/14)
Methods Inclusion Criteria IH clinical pharmacists and residents were administered a PRE and POST therapeutics quiz to assess knowledge translation DTP data during the PRE intervention phase (July 1 to Dec 31/13) and the POST intervention phase (Jan 1 to June 30/14) were included to assess behavioral change
Methods Intervention Bundle of proven multifaceted professional behavioral change strategies provided over a 8-week period – Audit and feedback – Local opinion leaders – Educational meeting – Educational outreach – Printed education materials – Reminders
Methods Primary Outcome The change in the proportion of DSEM DTPs resolved for pneumonia + UTI from PRE to POST phase Secondary Outcomes The change in the proportion of DSEM KPI resolved for pneumonia + UTI from PRE to POST phase Change in pharmacists’ quiz scores on pneumonia + UTI KPI therapeutics from PRE to POST phase The change in the proportion of DSEM DTPs resolved for heart failure by IH pharmacists

Conclusions Significant improvement in knowledge translation for pneumonia + UTI therapeutics Significant improvement in proportion of DSEM DTPs resolved for pneumonia + UTI Significant improvements in proportion of DSEM KPI resolved for pneumonia + UTI Significant reduction in proportion of DSEM DTPs resolved for heart failure
