3 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada 3 Outline  Stroke Statistics in Canada  Accreditation Canada and the Stroke Distinction Program National and International  Program components and enhancements  Impact of participating in the Stroke Distinction Program through identified performance measures

4 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Accreditation Canada  Major national accreditation body for organizations across all health sectors in Canada, incorporated in 1958  An independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization funded by its members  Over 1200 client organizations (6,000 sites)  International presence, including in Bermuda, Brazil, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Ecuador  Accredited by ISQua

6 Stroke Statistics in Canada  Third leading cause of death 6% of all deaths are due to stroke (Statistics Canada, 2012)  Every year, patients spend more than 639,000 days in acute care hospitals and 4.5 million days in residential care facilities (Canadian Stroke Network, 2011)  23% of patients are treated on a stroke unit In hospitals with a stroke unit, 47% are not treated within the unit (Canadian Stroke Network, 2011) 6

7 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Stroke Statistics in Canada  Mortality rate is 43 per 100,000 people Lower than most OECD members Lowest among comparable countries  In-hospital mortality rate is 9.7 per 100 patients Higher than the OECD average: 8.5 per 100 patients 7

8 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Rationale for the Stroke Distinction Program  More accountability is being placed on stroke care services  Stroke care services are high cost and high impact  Statistics Canada reports that stroke is one of the leading causes of death and adult disability  The Public Health Agency of Canada notes that stroke is one of the most impactful chronic diseases in Canada  Improving care and outcomes will result in efficiencies  Developed to recognize excellence in stroke care 8

9 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada 9 Stroke Distinction Program  Accreditation Canada developed the program in collaboration with the Canadian Stroke Network  Focuses on Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care  Recognizes clinical excellence, leadership, quality, safety, & innovation  On-site survey every 2 years  Stroke distinction is an optional program

10 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada 10 Distinction Cycle

11 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Stroke Distinction Across Canada  12 organizations currently participating in the Stroke Distinction program 9 have achieved stroke distinction  7 Canadian  2 International 3 have begun the process

12 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada International Stroke Distinction™ Introduced in Spring 2012 Implemented in Latin America (Brazil) and Europe (Italy) Highly recommended for organizations focused on innovation and research in stroke care 12

13 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Components of Stroke Distinction 13 The standards:  Acute Care  Rehabilitation  Integrated Systems Other program components:  Performance indicators  Protocols  Innovation  Client Education

14 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Performance Indicators  Data is submitted regularly every 6 months between on-site visits  Organizations are required to: Collect and submit data on all core indicators; Collect and submit data on at least 2/11 optional indicators Achieve the minimum data thresholds for:  Meet thresholds for 7/9 core acute indicators  Meet thresholds for 3/4 core rehabilitation indicators  Provide an action plan for unmet core thresholds 14

15 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Core Performance Indicators IndicatorAcuteRehabIntegrated Stroke / TIA mortality rates Proportion of ischemic stroke clients who receive acute thrombolytic therapy (tPA) Median time to administration of acute thrombolytic agent Proportion of clients treated on stroke unit Proportion of clients treated on a unit where stroke clients are clustered and meet all other stroke unit criteria Length of stay in an acute care hospital setting for clients admitted following an acute stroke event Length of stay in an inpatient rehabilitation setting for clients admitted following an acute stroke event Readmission to acute care for stroke related causes Proportion of acute stroke clients discharged to inpatient rehabilitation Proportion of clients prescribed antithrombotic therapy Proportion of clients with initial dysphagia screening at admission 15

16 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Protocols Acute  Emergency Medical Services (EMS) stroke screening  EMS bypass / direct transport to stroke centres (including air ambulance)  EMS pre-notification of stroke  Emergency Department notification of hospital-based stroke team  Neurovascular imaging for potential stroke patients (rapid access to CT)  tPA eligibility screening (based on current Canadian Stroke Strategy Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care criteria)  tPA administration  Administering acute ASA therapy  NEW FOR 2015 SURVEYS: Formal criteria for identifying appropriate clients for referral to inpatient rehabilitation 16

17 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Protocols Rehab  NEW FOR 2015 SURVEYS: Formal intake criteria for triaging client referrals and accepting clients for inpatient rehabilitation Acute & Rehabilitation  Swallowing ability assessment  Initial assessment of rehabilitation needs  Assessing and managing diabetes mellitus  NEW FOR 2015 SURVEYS: Pressure ulcer prevention  NEW FOR 2015 SURVEYS: Falls prevention 17 Requirements: Adopt and Implement At least 6/11 acute care protocols At least 2/3 rehabilitation protocols

18 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Innovation and Excellence Organizations must have at least one Q.I. project that meets all of the following criteria:  Is evidence based, e.g. aligned with accreditation standards and current Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke  Adds to the overall quality of stroke services within the facility or the region  Includes a completed evaluation, and measures sustainability of the project or initiative  Communicates findings within the organization and externally  Is notable for what it could contribute to the delivery of stroke services 18

19 © Accreditation Canada/Agrément Canada Patient and Family Education  Information provided at each phase of acute care, rehabilitation, community reintegration and long-term recovery should be relevant to the patient’s and the family’s changing needs  Organizations’ patient and family education must meet requirements set by Accreditation Canada  Availability of education material on the unit  Record of patient education 19
