Our aim was to evaluate the intervention had a significant impact on the adherence to SAP effectiveness of a quality improvement (QI) intervention indications (86.6% in the post-intervention, compared to 82.0% targeting SAP in children, by means of a multicenter prospective prior to the intervention; p < 0.05), and on its appropriateness intervention study, with a before and after design. (35.7% compared to 19.9%; p < 0.01). The impact of the inter- Methods We prospectively investigated elective surgical proce- vention on SAP appropriateness was maintained at follow-up dures performed in children <18 years, prior to the QI interven- (38.3%; p < 0.01 compared to pre-intervention).
