Study Description

Brief summary:

Importing quality improvement practices and enhances health education to improving quality of bowel preparation for health screening colonoscopy This is a retrospective data analysis study aimed at obtaining the types of purgative treatments used, the results of bowel preparation, and each subject's demographic characteristics (Age & Gender).

  • Condition or Disease:No-Show Patients
  • Intervention/Treatment:
  • Phase: N/A
Detailed Description

This study aimed to check-up the result and the impact of patient education using a medical team resource management (TRM) method on the adequacy of bowel preparation. Investigators collected a total of 2,104 (884 female, 1,220 male) healthy subjects who underwent a health check-up colonoscopy screening were enrolled before and after the application of the TRM program intervention. The efficacy of the TRM intervention and the factors affecting bowel preparation were estimated using multivariate logistic regression in this study. Enrollment of study subjects and data collection: The subjects enrolled in this study were those who received a health check-up colonoscopy screening in a tertiary center, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital (FEMH), in Taiwan from March 2013 to August 2014. A total of 2,104 healthy subjects who underwent check-up colonoscopy screening were enrolled during the pre-intervention, post-intervention, and validation periods. Investigators need to collect each subject's demographic characteristics (Age & Gender) and the types of purgative treatments used were collected to analyze. According to the Aronchick Bowel Preparation Scale, this study divided the degree of bowel cleansing into four levels, namely, "Excellent", "Good", "Fair" and "Poor". Investigators also need to collect the results of bowel preparation to calculate of the adequate bowel cleansing rate was defined further as the percentage of the participants with "Excellent" or "Good" cleansing in our analysis.

Outcome Measures
  • Primary Outcome Measures: 1. The well-designed education intervention can improve the rate of adequate bowel pr eparation for health screening colonoscopy. [ Time Frame: From March 2013 to August 2014. ]
    The multivariate logistic regression analysis results for adequate bowel preparation after adjustments for age, gender, purgative type, to analyze the adequate bowel preparation rate with different intervention period. Bowel preparation rate were the Good & Excellent % of the total cases. Each subject's demographic characteristics (Age & Gender), the type of purgative and bowel preparation rate were collected from Far Eastern Memorial Hospital (FEMH) in Taiwan. This study was secondary data analysis, and the data contains no person's details, images, or videos.
