Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale Missing Data

This report will assist supervisors and family support workers with identifying missing or incorrect data to ensure a complete and correct dataset is represented.

The section below contains information about each tab in the Iowa FSSD Report.

Reminder: Primary Caregivers and children under the age of 6 with profiles and assessments entered into DAISEY are included in this report. The data only reflects families that are actively enrolled during the date range selected in the filter.

“Active/Inactive” status in DAISEY does not apply determine who is counted in this report. Meaning, because a Child or Primary Caregiver is entered as “Inactive” does not exclude them from these reports.

Instructions for accessing underlying client level data and downloading PDF versions of reports are available in the DAISEY Technical Assistance Brief – How to Use DAISEY Reports.

5- Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale Missing Data

Figure 6

Figure 6

Details

Form: Caregiver Profile, Child Profile, and EPDS form.

Questions considered: Primary Caregiver Date of Enrollment, Child’s DOB, EPDS Date of Activity, Which Caregiver Was Involved, EPDS Age Interval, and Primary Caregiver Discharge Date

Who is counted:  All Primary Caregivers who are actively enrolled anytime during the date range selected.

Notes:

  • The EPDS due date for each timing will be calculated with the child’s Date of Birth and Primary Caregiver’s Date of Enrollment.
  • An EPDS will be considered missing (yellow box, Fig.6) if it is not completed within 2 weeks of the timing due date, with the exception of the prenatal and postnatal enrollment screenings, which are due within 3 months of enrollment. For example, the 6 month screening is due 2 weeks after the child turns 6 months old, the 9 month screen is due 2 weeks after the child turns 9 months old, etc.
  • The Prenatal bar includes Primary Caregivers who enrolled prenatally and have reached their 3 month enrollment anniversary in the selected date range. Therefore, if a prenatal mother enrolls on January 15, 2016, her prenatal EPDS is due by April 15, 2016; she will be included in the Prenatal bar for FY16 Quarter 4 (April – June 2016). The prenatal EPDS is considered missing once the Primary Caregiver has been enrolled longer than 3 months and the “Prenatal” screen has not been completed.
  • The Postnatal bar includes Primary Caregivers who enrolled postnatally with a child older than twelve months who have reached their 3 month enrollment anniversary during the selected date range. The postnatal EPDS is considered missing once the Primary Caregiver has been enrolled longer than 3 months and the “Other” EPDS timing has not been completed.
  • If the question ‘Family was enrolled prenatally’ was left blank on the Primary Caregiver profile, they will not be included in this data set. Check missing data for Primary Caregivers to ensure accuracy of this report.
