DENTAL EPIDEMIOLOGICAL SURVEY OF RESIDENTIAL AND NURSING HOMES 2006/2007

1. OBJECTIVES

1.1 To record data for the All Wales Common Minimum Data Set, 2007, from a survey of nursing and residential homes in areas in Wales in Winter 2006/2007 and Spring 2007.

1.2 To obtain comparable information relating to access to oral health care services and to maintenance and promotion of oral health within nursing and residential homes in areas of Wales.

1.3 To record results from 10% of homes in face to face interviews and from the remaining 90% of homes by postal questionnaire and where necessary subsequent telephone follow-up.


2. BACKGROUND

2.1 Within Wales the survey findings will be used to aid procurement and provision of dental services.

2.2 The study will be the responsibility of Local Health Boards in Wales, and undertaken on behalf of the LHB through their commissioning processes with the local Community Dental Services.

2.3 All-Wales co-ordination will be by the National Public Health Service (Wales), through the Wales Co-ordinator (contact Mr Nigel Monaghan). Data collation, cleaning and analysis will be undertaken by the Wales Lead for Oral Health Information (contact Mrs Maria Morgan) at the Welsh Oral Health Information Unit.

2.4 Comparability will be achieved by examiners being trained.


  1. SAMPLING

3.1 For this study the subject of examination is the Nursing and Residential Home. The expectation is that the local Community Dental Service will survey all of the nursing and residential homes in its area. Where access is not possible reasons for not being able to collect the data will be recorded.

3.2 The list of Nursing and Residential Homes in each Local Authority can be downloaded from the Care Standards Inspectorate Wales website. The address is:

http://www.csiw.wales.gov.uk/dataviewer/index.asp

To download the details select Adult Residential from the Service Type and Category, select Unitary Authority and click on Search. The results can be printed off for local use.



4. NOTIFICATION OF THE SURVEY AND EXCLUSION OF HOMES FROM THE SURVEY

The Nurse Director of the Local Health Board and the Director of Social Services in the Local Authority will be informed that the survey is to be conducted. In addition the Nurse Director of the Local Health Board and Director of Social Services in the Local Authority should be asked if there are any homes which they would wish to be excluded from this survey prior to approaching home Care Manager (see Appendix 1 for letter which is also provided electronically).


5. DATA COLLECTORS

5.1 The data collectors for this study will be provided from the Community Dental Service from the pool of staff who they would normally use for a school dental survey. It is for the local services to decide which staff to use so as to minimise disruption of their local service.


6. TRAINING AND STANDARDISATION

6.1 All data collectors will attend a training exercise to be held at the Newport Hilton Hotel on 27th – 29th September 2006. Please bring your extension lead and computer to the training and calibration.

6.2 The cost of the training and calibration exercise will be borne by the National Assembly for Wales.

7. EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

7.1 Portable microcomputer using Dental SurveyPlus 2 (Windows Version) and appropriate extension and adapter leads and plugs for entry of data.

7.2 Spare recording charts, pencils, rubber and sharpener for use in case of computer failure when conducting face to face or telephone interviews.

8. DATA COLLECTION FOR THE 10% FACE TO FACE INTERVIEWS

8.1 A letter should be sent to the care home in advance of making contact to arrange an interview time and date (see Appendix 2 for letter).

8.2 Where possible it is suggested that data should be collected from the Care Manager or equivalent person during a visit to the nursing/residential home.

8.3 Where it is not possible to visit to obtain the data the information can be collected by telephone.

8.4 The responses to the questions should be directly entered into the computer.
9. INTERVIEW PRINCIPLES FOR THE 10% SAMPLE

9.1 The questions will be asked of the care manager, read from the interview questionnaire (see Appendix 2).

9.2 Answers will be recorded onto the survey format. The format includes both multiple choice options for closed questions and free-text fields for entry of other information.

10. DATA COLLECTION FOR THE 90%

10.1 To maximise the response rate the process for conducting the postal survey is:



  • Postal Questionnaire Mailing 1 (see Appendix 3 for covering letter and postal questionnaire) and capture date of mailing (see Appendix 4)

  • Postal Questionnaire Mailing 2 (2 weeks after Mailing 1 and only to non-responders) and capture date of mailing (see Appendix 4)

  • Telephone reminder 1 of non-responders (2 weeks after Mailing 2) and capture date of call (see Appendix 4).

  • 10 Weeks after first mailing if home has not responded treat as home did not reply and record this (see Appendix 4).

10.2 To ensure complete accurate data is captured from responders the process for data capture is:

  • Mail questionnaires and record mailing date for each home (see Appendix 4)

  • As responses are received record receipt date (see Appendix 4)

  • Check questionnaire for non-response to questions or responses which are difficult to read or to code. Where these are present conduct follow-up telephone call for clarification and capture of missing answers and record the date of this call (see Appendix 4).

  • Enter the data into the SurveyPlus format provided and record the date of data entry (see Appendix 4).




  1. CAPTURE AND FORWARDING OF DATA

11.1 A Dental Survey Plus 2 format will be supplied by Mr N Monaghan and must be used for data collection and analysis. The Dental Survey Plus 2 format will be available in July/August 2006. The format should not be altered. If additional data is to be collected locally it should be collected separately.

11.2 An indication of the refusals by Directors of Social Services, by LHB Nurse Directors and by Nursing/Residential Homes should be provided on an excel spreadsheet (see Appendix 4) to the WOHIU with the interview data file.


12. THE INFORMATION TO BE COLLECTED

Depending on the data collection method used (i.e. postal questionnaire, face-to-face interview or telephone survey) the types of information collected will vary slightly. However the data recorded on the Dental SurveyPlus format will be the same for all data collection methods. The sections below outline the information which will be recorded on the survey format.

Dear Colleague
Re: Survey of Residential and Nursing Homes in Wales
The National Public Health Service is co-ordinating a survey of Residential and Nursing Care Homes across the principality. We hope to collect information on issues such as access to routine and emergency dental care. The information collected in this survey will be valuable for Local Health Boards and Local Authorities in assessing the health needs of this important population. This will help us to improve future access to dental care for residents of Nursing and Residential Care Homes.
Whilst it is intended to gather information from all Residential and Nursing Homes in Wales, I realise there may be reasons why you would not wish us to gather this information from one or two of your local Nursing and Residential Care Homes. I would be grateful therefore if you could write to the contact at the bottom of this letter with details of any home that you would wish to be excluded from the survey. The survey will be conducted some time between the end of September 2006 and beginning of July 2007.
I do hope that you will feel able to support us gathering this information. I look forward to being able to provide you with more detailed information on issues in relation to Nursing Home Care Policy and access to dental care for Nursing and Residential residents in due course.
The local contact is
Yours sincerely

Mr Nigel Monaghan
