  • 1. Bridging the Gap for Underdeveloped Preterm Infants from the Hospital to the Home IRIS LUANNE DE LA CALZADA, OTR/L DECEMBER 12, 2009
  • 2.
    • Underdeveloped babies as a result of preterm birth in young mothers who have had Caesarian section
    • Health Care cost: $7.4 billion a year – 15 times greater than full term babies in their first year of life
    • Average cost: $41,610 for premature babies vs. $2,830 for a healthy, full term baby
    Reference: P.R. Newswire. (2005, March 28). March of Dimes analysis finds direct health care costs for preemies nearly 15 times greater than full term babies. Retrieved on November 9, 2009 at website: http://wwwmarchofdimes.comaboutus/14458_15365.asp

    • In 2006, 12.3% of births in the United States are preterm(<37 weeks of gestation)
    • 31% increase in the preterm birth rate since 1981 [Raju, et al. (2006)]
    • Largest contribution to this increase was from births between 34 and 36 completed weeks of gestation
    • In Texas, there were 54,621 preterm births – 13.7% of total number of births documented
    • 63.1 teen births per 1000 residents

    • High-school drop-out rates – only 17.2% with high school education, 10% with higher education
    • Socio-economic status – average of $24,468 per household, $9,762 per capita income

    • Late preterm infants have higher
    • frequencies of:
    • respiratory distress
    • temperature instability
    • hypoglycemia
    • kernicterus
    • apnea
    • seizures
    • feeding problems
    • rates of hospitalization
    • High correlation between high rates of elective and non-elective Caesarian sections and premature births and mental retardation
    • Changing obstetric practices in the U.S.
    • Need to develop primary, secondary and tertiary prevention
    • Community Need :
    • Lack of well-structured NICU Occupational Therapy Programs

    • Predisposing factors:
    • Early exposure and engagement in sexual activity of female teenagers in the region
    • Low socio-economic status of households in the region
    • Lack of prenatal care and informed consent on risks involved in C-section
    • High immigrant population, unemployment and high school drop-out rates in the region
    • Enabling factor:
    • Lack of awareness among health professionals and the general public of existing well-structured NICU Occupational Therapy Programs
    • Reinforcing factor:
    • Lack of good communication among medical, allied health professionals and parents affecting smooth transition to the home
  • 7.
    • Using the PRECEDE-PROCEED Model, the goal of this
    • health promotion program is to improve client
    • satisfaction and quality of care for underdeveloped
    • preterm infants and their families through seamless
    • hospital-home transition. With occupational therapy
    • intervention in the NICU implemented by May 2010, the
    • objectives of this program therefore are as follows:
    • Consistent staff documentation
    • Streamlined protocol for referral for occupational therapy services
    • Regular family case conferences
    • Creation of printed educational material
    • Formal classes to focus on the empowerment of women
    • and first-time parents
  • 8.
    • Chosen to address the lack of communication at the individual level
    • Designed to instill intentional change
    • Focuses on decision-making
    • Relies on self-report

    • Chosen to address the problem at the community level
    ATTRIBUTE EXAMPLE RELATIVE ADVANTAGE The degree to which an innovation is perceived as better than the previous idea The Rainbow program would facilitate better lines of communication among medical and allied health professionals, as well as with parents of underdeveloped babies. COMPATIBILITY The degree to which an innovation is consistent with existing values, experiences and needs of the adopters The Rainbow Program is consistent with the needs of this underserved population in communities challenged by educational, health-related, and socio-economic needs. COMPLEXITY The degree to which an innovation is perceived to be difficult to understand or use The Rainbow Program will provide the necessary service (Occupational Therapy) to improve the process of discharge planning. There is already an existing discharge planning committee that exists within this facility where OT is also a part. The addition of patients from the NICU during this weekly meeting would be a minor adjustment.

Retrieved on November 20, 2009 from website: http://moodle.embanet.com/ot/mod/assignment/view.php?id=17018 ATTRIBUTE EXAMPLE TRIALABILITY The degree to which an innovation may be tested or experimented with on a limited basis The Rainbow Program can be pilot tested for 2-3 months or one quarter of a year. Program will consist of staff in-services, hosting of continuing education courses in the facility. OBSERVABILITY The degree to which the outcomes of an innovation is visible to others Outcomes are measured through increase in patient satisfaction scores, perceived improvement in service quality based on a needs assessment survey among teenage mothers and parents of NICU babies, and increase in staff satisfaction scores in the NICU and Women’s Department. Scores would be posted in the hospital intranet system.

    • Language barriers between service receptors and a culturally diverse staff
    • Communication barriers typical of a paternalistic biomedical model of patient intervention
    • LIMITATIONS:
    • Limited staffing, time and budget
    • STRENGTHS:
    • Better organized discharge planning and referral system
    • Smoother (faster) lines of communication
    • Improved quality of patient care
    • Increased patient satisfaction and quality of life
