Provider Satisfaction in assessing evidence based guidelines for urinary tract infection in children Veena Gonuguntla MD Mentor: Robert Haws MD

2 Objective of this project
To provide evidence based practice guidelines and assess the provider satisfaction in the management of urinary tract infections in childhood.

3 Background The use of standardized protocols in the clinical setting is gaining wide spread acceptance. These protocols may result in improved patient care, satisfaction and cost savings. The lack of guidelines can result in treatment delays and failures as well as excessive antibiotic usage.

4 UTI statistics UTI affects up to 3% of children in the US annually.
It is reported as second most common infection in children. Accounts for about 0.7 % of total office visits. Emergency visits include 5% - 14% of physician encounters for pediatric UTI. According to recent data by NIH its shown that UTI is much more predominant than statistics show

5 Statistics cont’d…. Data from national ambulatory medical care survey showed that more than 1.1 million annual physician office visits associated with UTI as primary diagnosis. About 1.4 million annual office visits associated with UTI as any listed diagnosis. Inpatient hospitalization is required in 2% - 3% of cases accounting ~ admissions in 2000

6 Financial Statistics The cost of hospitalization for UTI amounts to $180 million annually. True financial burden is much higher as it includes cost of outpatient services Imaging other diagnostic evaluations long term complications management of associated conditions that increase the frequency and morbidity of UTI.

7 Organisms associated with UTI
Gram negative organisms Escherichia coli > 80% Klebsiella species Proteus – common in males Enterobacter species < 2% Pseudomonas species < 2% Gram positive organisms Enterococci species Staphylococcus saprophyticus Staph. aureus (uncommon) Group B strep (uncommon)

8 E-coli Resistance E coli often carry multi drug resistant plasmids and under stress also can transfer these plasmids to other species. Marked increase in E coli resistance is occurring over the last decade to various antibiotics including pencillins, cephalosporins, Trimethoprim - sulfamethoxazole etc. Treatment usually is based on local resistance rates / patterns.

9 What is in literature? Only available UTI guidelines in AAP are from 1999 and only available for < 2 year old infants No recent updated guidelines in AAP for UTI. Controversies regarding use of prophylaxis, regarding imaging after first UTI, admission criteria, treatment options and follow up of UTI.

10 Study Design Comprehensive search and analysis of medical literature.
Reviewing the guidelines Developing algorithm Distribution of algorithm to clinicians. Family practitioners Adolescent medicine Nurse practitioners Pediatricians Neonatologists Emergency medicine Nephro/Urologists

11 Where am I currently in this project?
Searched literature available on management of UTI. Reviewed the available protocols. Selected the guidelines from Cincinnati Children’s hospital website which are found to be most updated and evidence based. Developed Pre and Post assessment questionnaire to assess providers.

12 Algorithm

13 Algorithm cont’d….

14 What’s next…. Sending pre-questionnaire to clinicians.
Distribution of the UTI protocol along with evidence to each step of the protocol to providers in Marshfield Clinic setting. Assessment of provider satisfaction after 6 months of distribution by using ZoomerangTM.

15 Assessment questionnaire
Pre Protocol Questionnaire. Strongly Agree Agree No Opinion Disagree Strongly Disagree 1. I like to use protocols for childhood illnesses 2. I have used protocols for management of UTI previously. 3. I think following a protocol will be useful in management of diseases. 4. I think following protocols will be effective in managing illnesses. 5. I like to use a evidence based protocol for management of UTI.

16 Assessment questionnaire
Post Protocol Questionnaire. Strongly Agree Agree No Opinion Disagree Strongly Disagree 1. This protocol for UTI is easy to understand 2. This protocol is easy to follow. 3. This protocol is helpful for guiding, imaging and followup in children with UTI. 4. I will use this protocol for UTI management in future. 5. I think this protocol improved the quality of care of children with UTI. 6. I think similar protocols for childhood illnesses would be helpful for my practice.

17 Follow up Analyze the data Put the data together and submit to AAP
As a next project will consider to analyze the treatment success with and without protocols.

18 Difficulties anticipated
Controversies regarding diagnosis, treatment or evaluation and questions will be raised (Algorithm will have a literature proof and is evidence based available so far) Parents/ patients acceptance to different treatment approach. Clinician compliance Patient compliance

19 Expectations Empowers health care provider to consistently treat and follow with the most updated evidence based guidelines. Identification of co-morbidities/risk factors. Long term benefits includes decreased antibiotic resistance, cost-effectiveness, accurate investigations.
