Development of quality indicators for pregnancy and childbirth in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus.

Modern Rheumatology 2024 April 9
OBJECTIVES: A quality indicator for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus during pregnancy and childbirth that is useful for sharing standard treatment policies has not yet been developed. This study aimed to develop a quality indicator for systemic lupus erythematosus associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

METHODS: To identify candidate quality indicators, we conducted a systematic literature review on the development of quality indicators for systemic lupus erythematosus related to pregnancy and childbirth and on clinical practice guidelines. Candidate quality indicator items were extracted from the final selected articles, and a first evaluation, panel meeting, and second evaluation were conducted to determine whether the candidate items were appropriate as quality indicators. Items for which all panel members reached a consensus were designated pregnancy and childbirth-related systemic lupus erythematosus quality indicators.

RESULTS: Four articles on systemic lupus erythematosus-quality indicator development and 28 practice guidelines were listed through abstract/text screening. Based on these studies, 52 candidate quality indicators were extracted that were limited to items related to pregnancy and childbirth, and 41 items were selected on which all panel members agreed.

CONCLUSION: We developed pregnancy-related systemic lupus erythematosus quality indicators using the RAND/UCLA method and selected 41 items, which could be used clinically.
