A cluster randomised pragmatic trial will be conducted within an emerging clinical information network composed of 12 Kenyan county hospitals. Hospitals will be randomised to an enhanced feedback intervention delivered over a six month period and compared to standard feedback. The trial to be implemented during a phase of implementing change in guideline recommendations for pneumonia will assess the impact of enhanced feedback on hospital uptake of the revised pneumonia treatment recommendations.
The international guidelines for the classification and treatment of childhood pneumonia were revised recently and in Kenya the national guidelines changed in February 2016. We designed an enhanced feedback intervention aimed at improving uptake of the revised pneumonia treatment policy within a clinical network of 12 Kenyan county referral hospitals.
Hospitals were randomized to receive either enhanced feedback (n = 6 hospitals) or standard feedback (n = 6 hospitals) delivered over a six-month period following nationwide pneumonia treatment policy change. The primary outcome is the proportion of all pneumonia admissions (fulfilling criteria for treatment with oral amoxicillin) who are correctly classified and treated using new guideline recommendations. The proportion of treatment change from oral amoxicillin to alternative antibiotics for pneumonia (considered a proxy measure of treatment failure) will be reported as a secondary outcome.

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.
