Immunization Protection in Child Care (IPiCC) Project (IPiCC)
|Up-to-date Immunization Status for Children in Child Care||Behavioral: Intervention child care programs|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Strategies to Improve Vaccination Coverage in Child Care Centers and Preschools|
- Children enrolled in child care program up-to-date for required immunizations [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]Proportion of children up-to-date for all state required childhood immunizations in the Utah State Immunization Information System (USIIS)
|Study Start Date:||September 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||August 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Intervention child care programs
Intervention child care programs will receive immunization outreach and education.
Behavioral: Intervention child care programs
Interventions will be designed based on findings from Aims 1 and 2, will include outreach and education, and may include on-site demonstration and USIIS training or peer tutoring.
No Intervention: Control child care programs
Control programs will receive no more than usual training regarding childhood immunization requirements.
Specific Aim 1 will describe Utah state and local government activities to ensure compliance of child care programs with state immunization requirements and identify government's barriers to ensuring compliance.
Specific Aim 2 will describe child care program staffs' knowledge, attitudes, and activities related to ensuring that all children are up-to-date for required immunizations and identify program barriers to ensuring up-to-date status.
Specific Aim 3 will evaluate at least 3 strategies to ensure that all children enrolled in child care programs are up-to-date for required immunizations. Aims 1 and 2 will guide the design of these strategies. Specific strategies proposed for Aim 3 are to: 1) design and pilot test an intervention to increase child care program use of the Utah State Immunization Information System (USIIS), 2) design an online immunization education module and conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine whether use of the module changes child care providers' knowledge, attitudes, and activities and increases the proportion of children who are up-to-date for required immunizations; and 3) conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine whether a quality improvement intervention implemented in child care programs increases the proportion of children who are up-to-date for required immunizations.
