1Adult IBD Services in the UK Comparison of(Your Site Name) results against the National Results for the Organisation ofAdult IBD Services in the UKUK IBD Audit 3rd RoundName of presenterDate of presentation
2The Organisational Audit Dataset was agreed by the UK IBD Audit Steering Group in line with the IBD Standards launched in February 2009
3Participation in the 3rd round 202 Sites across the UK entered complete data174 single hospital sites27 Trust-wide sites combining 2 hospitals as a single IBD Service (as was the case at North Bristol)1 Trust-wide site combining 3 hospitals as a single serviceEngland 162 sitesJersey 1 siteNorthern Ireland 11 sitesScotland 13Wales 15
4Publication of results Data was entered by sites onto a password protected audit web tool under the direction of a designated site lead, in almost every case a Consultant Gastroenterologist Data entered between 1st September and 31st October 2010 The results provide contemporary UK-wide data and all participating sites have received site-specific reports which will included local data for comparison against national averages The full National Report was launched on 24th May following World IBD Day as part of Crohn’s and Colitis Month
5Key Findings and recommendations The 3rd round organisational audit report key findings and recommendations were presented against the 6 core areas (A to F) of the National Service Standards for the healthcare of people who have inflammatory bowel disease.
6General Hospital Demographics & Inpatient Activity Key findings: • The number of admissions for both ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease has remained stable • The median number of operations performed per site for both ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease has significantly reduced over 3 rounds of audit (for ulcerative colitis a median of 11 in 2006, 10 in 2008 and 8 in 2010 and for Crohn’s disease a median of 17 in 2006, 13 in 2008 and 12 in 2010) • Patients aged 16 and under are admitted to adult services widely but in small numbers. Age specific services for these patients are substandard • Although the use of IT has widely increased many sites do not know how many patients they treat, with 85% of sites indicating that they had to estimate this figure Key recommendations: • All adult sites that admit patients aged 16 and under should review their service and ensure that age appropriate services are available for these patients as a matter of urgency • The appropriate level of service provision depends on the number of patients being seen with accurate data being key to any application for increased resources. An IBD database should include a list of all individuals being treated by the service

9Standard A – High Quality Clinical Care High quality, safe and integrated clinical care for IBD patients, based on multi‐disciplinary team working and effective collaboration across NHS organisational structures and boundaries.Key findings:There has been a steady improvement in the provision of IBD nurses but most sites remain below levels set out in the national standards of 1.5 WTE IBD nurses per populationThree quarters of services have a named clinical lead with relatively good support from services such as radiology and pathologyA named pharmacist with an interest in IBD is a part of the IBD team in less than 50% of sites with only 9% of IBD meetings having regular pharmacy inputDefined access to psychologists and counsellors with an interest in IBD is only available in 24% and 9% of sites respectivelyMultidisciplinary team meeting take place in three quarters of sitesAccess to dietetic services as reported by sites appears very good in contrast to the clinical audit data from round 2 which showed that few inpatients received any dietetic inputPouch surgery continues to be performed in 80% of sites with a median number of only 3 per yearThere has been a notable increase in dedicated GI wards, now present in 90% of sitesOn average there are 4 beds per toilet with 24% being mixed sex. This is below the minimum standard of 1 toilet per 3 bedsA high level of service is provided for diagnostic services80% of sites have facilities for an annual patient review with most sites using traditional clinic based models of careKey recommendations:Sites should work to establish an identifiable IBD team with a named clinical leadClinical pharmacy support for the IBD team should be strengthened given the high cost and complexity of the drug regimes that are often usedColorectal surgeons should be encouraged to enter the data on pouch operations onto the ACPGBI Ileal Pouch Registry:Sites should work to engage psychology and counselling services.IBD Team meetings and multidisciplinary working should remain a focus of the IBD team in the face of opposing pressuresAny opportunity to improve the bed to toilet ratio should be grasped and IBD teams should seek to create solutions within a defined timescale.

21Key ResultsStandard A12 – Arrangements for the Care of Children & Young People who have IBDUK 2010(202 sites)Your SiteDoes your IBD Service look after any patients aged 16 and under?Yes = 39% (78/202)Yes/NoDoes your unit have a specific paediatric to adult transition policy?Yes = 36% (73/202)With regards to the transition policy, 36/78 (46%) sites who said yes to A12.1 said they had a specific transition policy. This compares with 37/124 who said no to A12.1 who said they had a transition policy.
22Standard B – Local delivery of care Care for IBD patients that is delivered as locally as possible, but with rapid access to more specialised services when needed.Key findings:Only one third of sites have a protocol in place with GPs for the shared outpatient management of IBD patients and where they do it is only shared with the patient in 66% of these sites, most often verballyKey recommendations:Recent changes within the NHS will mean more frequent movement of patients between primary and secondary care. It therefore becomes vital that protocols are in place to ensure that the necessary access to secondary care is available in a timely manner, that the appropriate follow up is undertaken and that patients should receive a written statement of their management planAgreed protocols between primary and secondary care will facilitate this and sites should work to establish these protocols
23Key Results UK 2010 Standard B1 – Arrangements for Shared Care (201 sites)Your SiteIs there a defined protocol in place between the IBD Service and GPs for shared outpatient management?Yes = 34% (68/201)Yes/NoShared care protocols uncommon and 34 out of the 68 sites that do have them don’t give information about the protocols to patientsWhilst 93% sites share information about test results or treatment changes with GPs less than 30% of them do so by means other than via letter (27% by electronic record).
24Standard C – Maintaining a patient‐centred service Care for IBD patients that is patient‐centred, responsive to individual needs and offers choice of clinical care and management where possible and appropriate.Key findings:Rapid access to specialist services is good with 94% of sites offering expedited review and 92% reporting that they see patients within 7 days of referral. A range of contact options are available in many sitesWritten information about IBD is available in 99% of sites, most commonly produced by Crohn’s and Colitis UKA choice of follow up options is available in only 51% of sitesPatient involvement in service improvement is at relatively low levels but is improving with a number of alternative methods being usedKey recommendations:Significant improvement has been made in this area and sites should be encouraged to offer a range of follow up options and to involve their patients in service development
25Key Results UK 2010 Your Site Standard C2 – Rapid access to specialist advice UK 2010Your SiteIs there written information for patients with IBD on whom to contact in the event of a relapse?Yes = 79% (159/201)Yes/NoCan patients expect to be seen for specialist review within 7 days of a relapse?Yes = 88% (176/174Do patients have access to contact an IBD Specialist by any of the following methods?PhoneClinic95% (190/201)9.8% (20/175)(70/175)All of the questions above showed significant improvement between rounds 2 and 3 (2008 / 2010) of the UK IBD Audit.
26Key Results UK 2010 Your Site Standard C5 – Involvement of patients in service improvement UK 2010Your SiteAre Patient Panel meetings in place to involve patients in giving their views on the development of your IBD service?Yes = 17%(35/201)Yes/NoBetween rounds 2 and 3 of the UK IBD Audit (2008, 2010), the number of sites reporting patient panel meetings has shown a significant improvement from 11% to 18% (P value: <0.064)
27Standard D – Patient education and support Care for IBD patients that assists patients and their families in understanding Inflammatory Bowel Disease and how it is managed and that supports them in achieving the best quality of life possible within the constraints of the illness.Key findings:Translation services are widely available but written information is available in languages other than English in only 35% of sitesA written care plan for patients is only available in 33% of sitesFormal educational opportunities for patients are available in 57% of sitesThere is very wide spread contact with patient organisations with 99% of sites giving contact information, most commonly for Crohn’s and Colitis UKKey recommendations:Sites should work to develop written care plans for patients if these do not exist with priority given to newly diagnosed patients and those receiving immunomodulators and biological therapies
28Key Results UK 2010 Standard D1 – Provision of Information Your Site (201 sites)Your SiteDo you provide patients with a written care plan?Yes = 33% (67/201)Yes/NoDo you provide written information for patients regarding surgery?Yes = 73% (146/201)Translation services provided when needed and specific information available in almost all sites for newly diagnosed patients.75% sites have regular contact with Crohn’s and Colitis UK (indicated still as NACC at the time of data entry)
29Standard E – Information technology and audit An IBD Service that uses IT effectively to support patient care and to optimise clinical management through data collection and audit.Key findings:A register of IBD patients is kept in 55% of sites. Some include all IBD patients, but the majority include specific treatment groupsA real time data collection system to support the management of patients is used in only 19% of sitesOnly 10% of sites submit data to other national or international audits about IBDKey recommendations:Sites should ensure robust mechanisms are in place to capture at least basic data on all IBD patients
30Key Results UK 2010 Your Site Standard E2 – Developing an IBD Database Do you capture clinical data about the IBD patients under your care?Yes = 48% (97/201)Yes/NoDo you use this system in real time to support the management of patients?Yes = 40% (39/97)Between rounds 2 and 3 of the UK IBD Audit (2008, 2010), the number of sites reporting the capture of clinical data about IBD patients has shown a significant improvement from 38% to 51% (P value: <0.015) however 85% of sites in 2010 had to estimate the number of IBD patients that their service manages.
31Key Results 2010 Your Site Standard E3 – Participation in audit Apart from the UK IBD Audit, are you participating in any other national or international audits of care for IBD?Yes = 10% (20/201)Yes/NoDo you submit data (including outcomes) about patients with IBD who undergo surgery, to a national registry?Yes = 17% (35/201)
32Standard F – Evidence‐based practice and research A service that is knowledge‐based and actively supports service improvement and clinical researchKey findings:IBD nurse education is poor with a median of only 2 days per year of IBD specific training35% of sites are participating in UKCRN portfolio IBD studiesAn annual review of the IBD Service is held in only 22% of sitesKey recommendations:Sites need to ensure that IBD nurses have access to sufficient educational opportunities to maintain their specialist knowledge and skillsAll sites should be encouraged to participate in clinical researchAll IBD Teams should hold an annual review of their service
33Key Results 2010 Your Site Standard F1 – Training and Education How many days of IBD specific training did your IBD Nurse specialist have in the past 12 months?Median: 2 (0:5)XX days
34Key Results 2010 Your Site Standard F3 – Service Development Does your IBD Team hold an annual review day to review the IBD Service?Yes = 22% (44/201)Yes/No
35Summary of National Results There have been notable improvements in:- The presence of specialist gastroenterology wards- Sites with at least some IBD Clinical Nurse Specialist provision- Written information for patients on who to contact in the event of a relapseOverall there is good access to diagnostic servicesIBD Services are patient-focused and consultant ledKnown IBD patients have good access to specialist advice and can be seen quickly when relapsingMore sites are meeting directly with patient groups to discuss improvements to IBD ServicesSurgery as an option for inpatients seem to decreasingClinical teams have largely been able to make improvements in areas over which they have direct control and should be able to continue to improve. Difficulties exist where structural changes are required such as provision of toilets.
36Summary of National Results There is still very poor direct access to psychological supportThe ratio of beds per toilet is still to high with too many toilets still being mixed-sex.28% of sites still have no IBD Clinical Nurse Specialist provisionWhere sites do have an IBD Nurse Specialist in the majority of sites this nurse provision is below the minimum as set out in the IBD Standards and they receive little IBD specific training throughout the yearUse of Information Technology in capturing data on IBD patients is not focused and seems unable to provide services with reliable information on their patients
38Next Steps - Development of an action plan to Improve the “Your Site” IBD Service? Areas requiring action??
39The futureSites are encouraged to access and contribute towards the Shared Document Store on the IBD Quality Improvement Project (IBDQIP) website: which provides tools that sites can use to implement change within their IBD Service.Data entry for the Clinical Audit element of the UK IBD Audit 3rd round continues up until the 31st Aug 2010.The Biologics Audit element of the UK IBD Audit 3rd round will begin in the first week of September 2011
