NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ NDTMS Young People Services Core Dataset ‘F’ March 2009 Jill Smith NEPHO – NDTMS Team
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ National Drug (and Alcohol) Treatment Monitoring System Began collecting performance data on treatment of adult problem drug users, then YP drug & alcohol misusers, then adult alcohol –Client details –Episode details –Treatment modality/intervention details –Treatment outcome Profiles (TOP) details –Local Regional fields
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ National Drug (and Alcohol) Treatment Monitoring System Number of fields has expanded and changed Reference options within fields have expanded and changed Additional services completing NDTMS Additional Government Departments involvement Now on Core Dataset F Where to begin?
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ All fields should be completed Some fields should be reviewed Some fields should be completed at discharge Some fields can be completed after discharge Garbage in ~ Garbage out Analysis and information jeopardised when fields left blank Basics: Data Completion
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ Basics: Understand the Questions The NTA Business Definition and Reference Data Documentation is important and changes as understanding of usage and meaning develops
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ Basics: Get hold of the documentation NTA WEBSITE FOR DOCUMENTATION:- http://www.nta.nhs.uk/areas/ndtms/core_da ta_set_page.aspx NB: Awaiting revised guidance for young persons' treatment providers

NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 2. TOP / Care Coordination flag Does the treatment provider currently have care coordination responsibility for the client in regards to completing the TOP information when appropriate, during the client’s time in structured treatment? One service to manage TOP process (agreed at a local Treatment System level) One set of TOPs for one episode of care Consent for sharing TOP process data
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 2. TOP / Care Coordination flag Recent enquiry received by NDTMS team: Re top coordination surely ALL providers are required to fill in a care plan for their organization and if they do who decides who is the overall care coordinator? Care Planning is not the same as Care Coordination Decisions about Care Coordination have to be made at a local level and even then there must be ongoing communication between services to ensure all the clients’ needs are being met
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes a) Referral Date/Referred to Intervention Date? Clarification of need for 2-way communication: Referral date: when the service and YP agreed to referral Referred to Intervention Date: when keyworker and YP agreed to treatment Understanding is important as this information is linked to the performance of services in YP being assessed within 5 days of referral.

NewChild Looked After Out of LA – this refers to a child looked after who is currently placed outside the geographical boundaries of the Local Authority responsible for them NewYoung Person Living in Supported Housing - this refers to accommodation specifically commissioned to meet the needs of young people.

NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes….. e) Children Living With? Age of ‘child’ raised to under 18 – and now at presentation only f) Hep B & Hep C Status? New: Assessed as not appropriate to offer g) Interventions New: YP - non-structured intervention New: Adult Alcohol – Brief intervention Use of combined Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions can lead to performance measurement errors with serious consequences
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes….. h) Discharge Reason (Separated from Discharge Destination) Please note that different definitions will apply to the above codes depending on the setting of treatment i.e. in YP providers or if the client is being treated primarily for Alcohol. YP Discharge Reason? – Planned
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes….. h) Discharge Reason YP Discharge Reason? - Neutral The distinction between In and Not in Custody may be difficult to determine in some cases – more clarification is being sought.
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes h) Discharge Reason YP Discharge Reason? - Unplanned This option would also have to be used if a client is still known to be using crack/heroin, even occasionally, at the end of care-planned treatment.
NDTMS – Core Dataset ‘F’ 3. Reference data changes….. j) Employment Status? Removed: Not in Education or Training or employment Attending PRU/Special Schooling arrangements

Alcohol and the North East Reminder Do not record parent/carers interventions unless the misuser is a client, has consented to NDTMS and is involved in the intervention.
Alcohol and the North East Reminder Complete all 3 levels of Substance Misuse which got client into treatment.
Alcohol and the North East Reminder There will be a revision of the NTA’s recommended Consent and Confidentiality Toolkit. This will be published following final legal advise and consultation – hopefully during April 2009. Do you know where to find it? Do you know what it says now? Has your service incorporated the advice into your own documentation?
Alcohol and the North East Drug treatment health care assessment date – Young People Treatment providers should only record a date when a young person receives an assessment from a health clinician such as a Nurse, Doctor or Psychiatrist AND when the assessment relates specifically to their substance misuse such as in relation to clinical management, issues arising from injecting behaviour, blood borne viruses or dual diagnosis. Providers should refer to Assessing Y P for substance misuse 2007 for guidance on when it is appropriate for a young person to be assessed by a health clinician. Further guidance in relation to health care assessments for young people will be published alongside the forthcoming harm reduction guidance by the end of 2009. Reminder
