0353_PAMF_ Improving Chlamydia Screening_Grand Rounds

June 27, 2024

Description:

Sexually active people can get chlamydia, a common, treatable, sexually transmitted disease (STD). There is a gap in chlamydia screening rates in females ages 16 years and older in our general pediatric clinic sites which can lead to under diagnosis of infections in affected females, of whom >84% are estimated to be asymptomatic. Females with untreated infections are at risk for pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, increased risk of HIV, and infertility. This activity will address chlamydia screening rates in females ages 16 and older in general pediatric clinic sites - a metric that PAMF has been underperforming according to the quality dashboard. PAMF has instituted an opt-out screening across multiple general pediatric clinic sites in an attempt to increase the chlamydia screening rates. The goal is to increase the chlamydia screening rate in females ages 16 and older in Palo Alto Medical Foundation general pediatric clinic sites by 5% in 2024. PAMF will use the outcome measure of chlamydia screening rate, process measure of the number of patients who postpone or opt-out of screening, and balance measure of provider satisfaction to inform the quality improvement process. Completion criteria includes 12 months of data collection and process improvement with an emphasis on outcome measures of improving chlamydia screening rates.

Target Audience

Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Nurse, Registered (RN)

Physicians (MD or DO)

Physician Assistant (PA)

Learning Objectives

After this activity, learners should be able to:

1. Review the current PAMF data on chlamydia screening rate in females aged 16+.

2. Design personal practice strategy, documented in the Commitment to Change, to achieve the project goals:

3. Demonstrate a 5% increase of chlamydia screening rates of females aged 16 years and older at general PAMF pediatric clinic sites by 5% in 2024.

4. Prioritize achieving an <50% rate of patients who postpone or opt-out of chlamydia screening.

5. Participate in a survey of participating pediatricians for provider satisfaction with the screening process including qualitative feedback in order to limit the potentially negative impact of chlamydia screening on provider satisfaction and to inform PDSA cycles and real-time change in the screening process.
