Addressing Iron Deficiency Anemia 181 st Street Clinic (Washington Heights Family Health Center) 2006 -7 PDSA Project
Why Tackle Iron Deficiency? #1 Nutritional Disorder in World 80% Fe Deficient 30% some form of Fe Deficient Anemia Easily Administered Therapy
SUPPLEMENTATION WORKS! Effect on of treatment n . 78 mg/d. L difference in those treated Positive Effects on Developmental Outcomes Cognition?
AIM Statement Reduce the impact of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia in children under 3 in our practice by: Increasing the identification of children at risk Implementing evidencebased treatment of iron deficiency anemia Establishing primary prevention of iron deficiency for an at-risk population (Patients aged 1 -3 years)
PDSA for Prevention of Anemia P: Implement primary prevention of iron deficiency D: Providers began prescribing prophylactic MVI with iron to all patients aged 1 -3 years S: Chart Review (2 wks post intervention): n Providers prescribing prophylactic MVI with Iron to 81% of patients 1 -3 years A: Expanded education efforts to ALL providers including nurse practitioners
AAP Iron-deficiency Screening and Treatment Guidelines Universal Screening in high risk communities n Hgb or Hct between 9 -12 months, and again 6 months later Treatment n Treat pts 6 m-1. 9 y with Hb <11. 0 mg/d. L, 2 -5 yrs with Hb < 11. 1 with 3 - 6 mg/kg/day of elemental iron n Repeat CBC 1 month into treatment – if hgb increased by 1 g/dl then continue for 2 more months, if NOT then further testing recommended n Repeat testing 6 months after successful treatment
How Are We Screening? Pre-intervention Measurement: to assess variability in current screening practices n n 2 year olds 9 -12 month olds CBC AND a hemocue (68%) CBC AND a hemocue (31%) CBC (55%) CBC (28%) Hemacue alone 14% Hemacue alone 4% Proposals brought to providers on ways to implement uniform screening methods n n n Which ages to screen patients Hemocue vs. venipuncture Coordinating venipunctures with state mandated Pb screening
Changes Made To Screening At/ around 12 months: CBC and lead At/around 18 months: Hemocue At/around 24 months: CBC and lead
Screening P: Tentative consensus made to conduct CBC screening at 12 venous, 18 month hemocue, and 24 months venous D: Providers informed via email of new plan to screen at theses specific ages S: Chart review of recent 12 -24 month old visits 18/20 (90%) pts with CBC/Pb screen by 1 year of age 8/12 (66%) pts with f/u hemocue between 15 -24 months A: Conducted discussion via email to foster awareness of and buy-in to the new screening protocol
Current Protocol Primary Prevention n Prescribe prophylactic MVI with Iron for all pts 1 -3 years to continue for duration of at least 1 year Screening n CBC at 12 month, Hemocue 18 months, and 24 months CBC and Hemocue Treatment n n Treating all pts under 5 yrs with Hb < 11 with 2 - 4 mg/kg/day of elemental iron Repeat CBC 1 month into treatment – if hgb increased by 1 g/dl then continue for 2 more months, if NOT then further testing recommended
Treatment Pre-Intervention Measurement: n 4/16 (25%) patients with iron-deficiency anemia given correct treatment doses of Iron according to AAP Providers educated on AAP guidelines Discussion of how we plan to implement/adapt the AAP guidelines, e. g: n n Dosage Anemia definition (i. e. cut-offs by age – vs AAP)
Chart Review—Are we appropriately documenting, diagnosing, & treating anemia? patients age 1 to 3 with dx code of anemia over a 6 month period Results: n n n (1) 94% proper “anemia diagnosis (2) 81% treated with 2 -4 mg/kg/day dosing of Fer-in-sol (3) 81% correctly instructed for follow-up as per documentation (4) 94% followed up regardless of documentation (5) 63% documented resolution of anemia (though some still in Tx at time of review) Goals: Are we reaching them? Documentation might not lead us to believe so…
Compliance Problem Randomly selected group of parents of one to 3 year olds. Only 40% took the vitamins nearly all the time (5 times a week or more). 50% of the parents surveyed admitted non-compliance (one dose a week or less)
Compliance Chart Review 1 to 3 year olds from each provider 59% had documentation of child taking Polyvisol with Fe. All charts documented appropriate screening times for CBC Reasons for non-compliance
Steps Towards Compliance IRON RICH FOOD HANDOUT English version: revised the handout at a 4 th grade reading level using the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Index. b) Spanish version: translators and Fernandez-Huerta scale between 5 th and 6 th grade.
Future Directions Finalize consensus screening protocol and achieve provider buy-in Why are parents not giving the Iron? n Are the Handouts helping? Chart reviews n Treatment – Are we treating for kids who meet criteria? For patients diagnosed with anemia how is the follow-up – testing at 1 month? Continuing for 3 months at least? n Primary Prevention – Are patients staying on the MVI with Iron? Is it resulting in fewer kids with anemia?
Previous PDSA? Dental Health n 50% documentation of discussion Developmental or Speech Delay n n 50% documented discussion 0% used sticker’s from last year’s project
