March: Ipas visits 5 NYC hospitals May: Ipas and partners lobby NY City Council for funding, resulting in $2.1 million for construction of Womens Options Center at Kings County Hospital

10 History of TAM: 2005, cont. May 15 – 17, 2005: Technical Assistance and Mentoring Project Training 8 clinicians participated (OB/Gyn, Family Practice, Pediatrics, CNM, PA)

11 Training vs. Mentoring Mentoring and training strategies complement one another for service delivery change Training -Brief and finite period of time -Outcomes relate to knowledge and skills Mentoring -Sustained process -Outcomes relate to relationship building and support

12 A Combined Strategy Mentoring clinicians and health systems through service delivery change Training clinicians to safely and effectively perform outpatient uterine evacuation Developing and disseminating tools and resources to assist in service delivery change Advocating for improved standards and guidelines

13 Four Predictable Stages of Mentoring PreparationNegotiationParticipationClosure Explore motivation, skill level and learning needs Create an agreement and a work plan Practice, build competency and confidence levels Transition on-going responsibilities to continue at institution

14 Criteria for Selecting Mentors Involvement in successful integration of MVA into ambulatory settings Current MVA trainer Ability and willingness to complete scope of work Personal characteristics Listening, flexibility, devotion to high quality care, ability transfer passion, ability to appreciate and affirm personal / organizational diversity

15 Criteria for Selecting Change Agents Participation in Ipas hospital assessment and/or request for Ipas technical assistance Current engagement in effect staff relationships Willingness to meet expected level of commitment: Weekly listserve participation Coordinated telephone communication with Ipas mentors Coordinated site visit with Ipas mentors

16 Criteria for Selecting Participating Institutions Completion of site assessment Geographic priority areas Opportunity windows: Committed change agent Clear institutional goals Commitment to training residents in all technologies Committed leadership Appropriate facilities

17 TAM: The Pilot Year May 2005 – June 2006

18 Pilot Year: Results Performed interventions at 25 institutions, 22 of whom are engaged in ongoing work with TAM Approximately 450 clinicians and staff participated in TAM activities More than 20 active Change Agents work together and with Mentors to influence service delivery change

19 TAM: Institutional Picture

20 o Interventions reached attendings, residents, advanced-practice clinicians and nurses o Between 12 and 74 participants were reported at varying sites Participation in TAM Activities

21 Equipping TAM Participating Institutions Equipping hospitals where the TAM worked current as of the end of FY 2006 Location of the InstitutionFY 2005 SalesFY 2006 Sales New York City: Multiple Hospitals$5179$13,666 Texas: 2 Hospitals$853$5135 Pennsylvania: 2 Hospitals$0$892 Colorado: 1 Hospital$0$2,384 Illinois: 2 Hospitals$0$6038 California: 2 Hospitals$0$30 TOTAL$6,032$28145

22 New York (HHC) Multiple hospitals that are part of a public, urban system Pennsylvania 3 hospitals, including 2 University-based centers Illinois 3 hospitals, including 1 Family Medicine department, and another OB/Gyn department California 2 hospitals, including one ED; 1 large, multi-center network Colorado 1 hospital Where TAM Has Worked Texas 2 hospitals, including 1 University-based centers

23 Improve quality of abortion and miscarriage services delivered by public hospitals that serve poor and marginalized women in NYC Increase the number of clinicians trained to provide abortion services in the US by institutionalizing abortion training in teaching hospitals in NYC Document Ipass service delivery improvement model of dissemination and replication in other areas of the US New York: Objectives

24 NARAL Pro-choice New York research and advocacy 2002 Mayor Michael Bloomberg mandates Womens Options Initiative Ipas role established through Partnerships Communication Technical assistance Mentoring New York: Precursors to Success

25 Developed a basic outline for orientation and training Initial discussions and site assessment Initial onsite visit Overview presentation, Grand Rounds didactic and practicum components Administrative support Ongoing mentoring relationship New York: Outcomes to Build Upon

26 Chicago An example of the potential for change in service delivery due to concentrated mentoring efforts Mentors and Change Agents worked deliberately through the four predictable stages Change Agents at different institutions collaborated and supported one another

27 Chicago: An Institutional Picture One OB/GYN department Goal: improve elective abortion care One Family Medicine department Goal: provide miscarriage management Two strong change agents Collaborated effectively Strong institutional support

28 Chicago: Mentoring and Training Activities Pre-intervention visits Grand Rounds on miscarriage management MVA in-service MVA pelvic model practicum MVA clinical training Journal club

29 California: New Frontiers Taking TAM to larger systems Leveraging built-in monitoring systems Piloting a model for Emergency Departments Collaborating to influence professional guidelines Leveraging built-in monitoring systems Broad, diverse geographic reach

30 California: Collaborations Collaborating with partners to expand: Reach Potential for service delivery change Opportunities to foster additional Mentors

31 California: Reaching New Systems of Care Geographically diverse, multi-facility HMO More than 3.2 members in region Member of large national organization 8.4 members enrolled nationally Provides care in 30 medical centers 8 Residency Programs 431 offices 11,000 physicians Capacity for internal data collection and documentation Based on 2005 data

32 Success Stories Tension at our site was lowered because we spent so much time together – multiple interactions solidified trust and by the time we were really working on MVA, we were already in. It was good to talk with people who we perceive to be barriers to change even if working with them wont bear any fruit – they are glad to be included as part of the team intervention now, and could be bigger barriers in the future if not included. -Change Agent, Chicago

33 Success Stories After Ipass work with us, we now care for all our women the Ipas way. We are using much less anesthesia, providing them with all options, and making sure they have birth control immediately after their procedures. We have seen a dramatic change. Chief of OB/GYN, Large urban public hospital

34 Success Stories Two days ago, in OB triage, I had an Hispanic, non-documented patient with no financial support, missed abortion and no resources, desperate for help that I felt so lucky to be able to use my MVA since OR and L&D were booming and we could not utilize the OR even if we wanted to. It worked great, and I got to train one of the other 2 nd year residents on it. Its great. She was so appreciative and her family was so grateful. She almost had no pain. When I told her we were done, she could not believe it. - Change Agent, 3 rd year OB/GYN resident, Texas hospital

35 The Future of TAM Moving toward a new system of care for Early Pregnancy Loss

36 Institutional Change Sustain and improve mentoring process Continue to work in priority regions Focus on systems of care, to influence more settings Monitor and evaluate changes Collect and disseminate findings

37 Monitoring and Evaluation Build capacity of TAM Research Core Develop map of priority research questions Collect baseline data and ongoing data at intervention sites Disseminate findings

38 Influence Professional Guidelines Work with partners Utilize data from intervention sites Collect and synthesize evidence- based standards of care Present findings to institutions responsible for setting professional guidelines

39 TAM Cultural Change Model High Quality EPL Services throughout the US Monitor & Evaluate Mentoring Ongoing assistance Foster relationships with partners Disseminate findings
