|Up-to-date Immunization Status for Children in Child Care||Behavioral: Intervention child care programs||Not Applicable|
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.
