The Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injury (OASI) Care Bundle

The Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injury (OASI) Care Bundle A quality improvement programme to reduce the incidence of third- and fourth-degree perineal tears Current issues in OASI prevention in the UK Inconsistencies in approaches to preventing OASIs Inconsistencies in training and skills Lack of awareness of risk factors and long-term impact of OASIs Variation in practice between midwives and doctors Our Care Bundle aims to address these issues Trochez R, Waterfield M, Freeman RM.

A care bundle is a small set of evidence-based interventions for a defined patient segment or population and care setting that, when implemented together, will result in significantly better outcomes than when implemented individually. Institute for Healthcare Improvement There are three major components to the intervention which will be implemented together: Such as posters, pens, balloons,

memory aids Campaign materials Champions will attend a Skills Development Day Training in interventions Guidance and support in rolling out in their units Training materials provided: E.g. videos, visual aids and a quiz Multidisciplinary skills development module 4 evidence-based interventions that, when implemented together, will

result in significantly better outcomes than when implemented individually. A Care Bundle Guide will be provided The OASI Care Bundle 1 2 Inform the woman about OASI and what steps can be taken to minimize her risk. (an information leaflet will be provided) Use of manual perineal protection Spontaneous births if position allows it (women excluded) All assisted births (forceps and ventouse) who give birth in water are 3 Medio-lateral episiotomy (60 degree angle) at crowning to be used when indicated.

4 Perineum must be examined after delivery and any tears graded according to the RCOG guidelines. Examination should include a per rectum check, even when the perineum appears intact. The intervention will be facilitated by: 1. Local clinical champions (one midwife and one obstetrician from each unit). They will champion the project including: ensuring that staff have completed the multi-disciplinary skills development module, monitoring local compliance with the care bundle, reporting on unit-level OASI rates, and participating in shared learning days with the other units in their block. 2. Leadership and support from professional organisations will be provided by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) who will actively promote the project and will provide a joint statement endorsing the use of care bundle. In addition, the professional and educational networks of the Colleges will be actively used to support the skills development module. 3. Continuous monitoring and feedback will allow participant units to measure their progress, by reporting their OASI rates, compliance with the care bundle, and uptake of the skills development module. Units will participate in shared learning days with other units to provide a forum to discuss the project as it progresses. Evaluation of implementation outcomes
