Sharing and Teaching ECGs to Minimize Infarction (STEMI): reducing diagnostic time for acute coronary occlusion in the emergency department

Sharing and Teaching ECGs to Minimize Infarction (STEMI): reducing diagnostic time for acute coronary occlusion in the emergency department

  • natasha K gakhal 02 July 2021

    this is a good initiative focused on improving specifically ED diagnosis of STEMI and treatment. I agree there may be hawthorn effect at play here but it does appear that audit and feedback worked and was sustained. It's noted that a third of MDs visited the website each week- do you have any data to show if it was the same one third of MDs visiting each week ( small group of MDs like it and use it regularly) or many MDs used it intermittently? This may help to tailor your intervention to get more consistent high number visits. May be helpful to do a MD survey to see what was the main driver for the decreased ETA time was- the grand rounds or the website or possibly something else not accounted for.
