Title: Coverage of influenza, pneumococcal, and herpes zoster immunisation amongst patients with immune-mediated inflammatory conditions and use of reminders to improve vaccination rates in Australian general practice.

  • Funding scheme: FND000653: Pfizer-Independent Grants Program for Learning and Change
  • Description: Overall goal To investigate the current vaccination coverage for influenza, pneumococcus, and herpes zoster amongst patients affected by immune-mediated inflammatory disease (IMID) and increase vaccination rates using targeted printed patient immunisation reminders, electronic health practitioner immunisation reminders, and educational activities in Australian general practice. Target population Patients affected by IMID (rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, or inflammatory bowel disease) attending Australian general practice. Across Australia, these conditions affect approximately 2% of the population (~500.000 individuals). Educational activities will be targeting general practitioners (GPs) and other primary healthcare providers working in these practices. Methods Current vaccination coverage (Stage 1): deidentified data on influenza, pneumococcus and herpes zoster vaccinations for patients with IMID will be extracted, with practice consent, from all participating practices using the Doctors Control Panel (DCP) for 2013-2018. DCP is a well-established software package that retrieves medical information from electronic medical records and identifies preventive health care activities that are due. Time series trial (Stage 2): DCP will also be used to generate targeted printed patient immunisation reminders (read in the waiting room) and electronic GP immunisation reminders (GP computer) in a representative sample of Australian general practices. The outcome measures at the end of the intervention (24 months) are 1) recorded administration of influenza, pneumococcal, and herpes zoster vaccines to patients with IMID, and 2) documented contraindications to, or refusal of, those vaccines over two years. Assessment Compared to the baseline (Stage 1), we expect an improvement of at least 20% in vaccination coverage after the intervention (Stage 2).
