A care bundle to improve perioperative mitomycin use in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer

A care bundle to improve perioperative mitomycin use in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer Purpose Intravesical chemotherapy administered within 24 h of the first resection of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) reduces recurrence rates and prolongs recurrence-free intervals. However, there is considerable variation in the use of intravesical chemotherapy amongst urologists. In our hospital, we use mitomycin C (MMC), and our usage was inconsistent. Therefore, we devised a care bundle to improve MMC usage. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the care bundle on postoperative MMC use. Methods We measured baseline postoperative MMC use during the first quarter of 2013. In 2014, we implemented a care bundle by changing MMC delivery, through computer-based clinical information systems and repeated training of key stake- holders. We studied the performance of the bundle through snapshot audits in the last quarter of 2014, a 6-month period in the middle of 2015 and again in the final quarter of 2016. Results We observed an increase in intravesical chemotherapy usage after implementing the care bundle. Instillation rates in our samples increased from 46% (6/13), in 2013 to 89% (8/9), in 2014, 90% (9/10), in 2015 and 100% (12/12), in 2016.

Abstract

Purpose Intravesical chemotherapy administered within 24 h of the first resection of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) reduces recurrence rates and prolongs recurrence-free intervals. However, there is considerable variation in the use of intravesical chemotherapy amongst urologists. In our hospital, we use mitomycin C (MMC), and our usage was inconsistent. Therefore, we devised a care bundle to improve MMC usage. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the care bundle on postoperative MMC use. Methods We measured baseline postoperative MMC use during the first quarter of 2013. In 2014, we implemented a care bundle by changing MMC delivery, through computer-based clinical information systems and repeated training of key stake- holders. We studied the performance of the bundle through snapshot audits in the last quarter of 2014, a 6-month period in the middle of 2015 and again in the final quarter of 2016. Results We observed an increase in intravesical chemotherapy usage after implementing the care bundle. Instillation rates in our samples increased from 46% (6/13), in 2013 to 89% (8/9), in 2014, 90% (9/10), in 2015 and 100% (12/12), in 2016. Conclusion Compliance rates of intravesical chemotherapy in NMIBC can improve by devising care bundles to modify
