Pain assessment in the pediatric population is challenging because of age, developmental stage, and patient cooperation. Cognitive impairment, impaired communication, and physical disability that may accompany traumatic brain injury (TBI) further complicate pain assessments. A pilot descriptive qualitative research study was conducted to investigate nurse perceptions of pain in pediatric patients diagnosed with TBI. Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions: a) Is pain accurately assessed in this population? b) Is pain adequately treated in this population? and c) What obstacles exist, if any, to the assessment and treatment of pain? A convenience sample of three registered nurses employed in a pediatric neurosurgery setting participated in this study...

Despite educational programs, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) rates remain unacceptably high, especially among low-income and African-American populations. The purpose of this review is to examine reasons for parental noncompliance with supine sleep recommendations. A database search in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, PubMed, EBSCOhost, and CINAHL was conducted using keywords SIDS, prevention and control, parental compliance, nursing, supine position, Back to Sleep campaign, and Safe to Sleep campaign...

Transitioning patients from one unit to another is a nursing function that occurs daily. When done effectively, it streamlines continuity of care, decreases anxiety, ensures patients and families maintain confidence in care providers, and avoids readmissions to the intensive care unit (ICU). This article describes a transition plan for transferring patients from the ICU to the general pediatric unit developed by an inpatient, non-critical care cardiology/neuro logical unit to facilitate a smooth and informational transition from the ICU to the non-critical unit...

Admitting pediatric patients promptly to the appropriate unit where they can receive specialty care is of critical importance to safe, quality care. A daily morning huddle was implemented at one children’s hospital as a quality improvement project. The aim of this project was to improve patient flow throughout the children’s hospital by improving interprofessional and interdepartmental communication and collaboration. This article reports on changes in patient flow before and after implementation of the daily huddle, as measured by pediatric emergency department (ED) boarding times...

Pain treatment begins with a nurse’s assessment, which relies on effective assessment skills. Hospital settings have implemented pain assessment education, but there is limited evidence in pediatric transitional care settings. The purpose of this quality improvement (QI) initiative was to develop, implement, and evaluate an evidence-based pain education session with 20 nurses in a pediatric specialty hospital that provides transitional care. Specific aims were to assess nurses’ knowledge and attitudes of pain, and evaluate assessment skills based on nurses’ documentation...

REVIEW
Kanlaya Ditthakasem, John C Kolar
Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) is a common condition and the leading cause of head shape abnormalities in infants. It is characterized by asymmetrical distortion of the skull resulting from external forces on the back of the head. DP has become more prevalent in infants and has increased dramatically since the introduction in 1994 of the “Back to Sleep” campaign. Management of this condition is not often covered by insurance, and can be costly and lengthy; However, DP can be prevented. Early recognition and management can make a significant difference in patients’ outcomes and reduce the cost of treatment...

Over 400,000 children are in foster care in the United States, and more than 100,000 of them are waiting to be adopted. Yet many will age out of foster care into adulthood without an adoptive family. Teens and young adults aging out of foster care, even those with preparation and training for the transition, often do not fare well in young adulthood. Many face challenges in areas of education, employment, homelessness, finances, the criminal justice system, and meeting health and mental healthcare needs. Research demonstrates what only makes sense: teens with tangible support from meaningful adult relationships fare better than those without...

More than 600,000 people die each year as a result of exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS); 28% of those deaths are children. Most exposure for children occurs in the home and is due to a parent smoking. Parental awareness and understanding of the exposure to SHS and the risk that parental smoking brings to the child may be an effective impetus for smoke avoidance and parental tobacco cessation. This descriptive, correlational study used data provided by a convenience sample of 184 smoking parental-figures, representing 376 children, recruited in community settings...

Dental caries is one of the most prevalent and significant health problems in the United States. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, more than one-fourth of children between the ages of two and five years experience early childhood caries before entering kindergarten. The purpose of this study was to explore parent’s knowledge of preschool children’s oral health risk factors. A descriptive design was used with a convenience sample of 87 parents of children who attended day care centers and preschools...

An increase in vaccine hesitancy is contributing to an increase of vaccine refusal and the use of an alternative vaccine schedule (AVS) in the United States. Increasing vaccine knowledge and correcting vaccine misinformation has the potential of shifting parental attitudes, decreasing vaccine hesitancy, and increasing parental intent to vaccinate. The aim was to examine the impact of a voice-over PowerPoint™ presentation on vaccine education and decision-making by vaccine-hesitant parents in a pediatric primary care clinic...

REVIEW
Shayleigh K Dickson
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a clinically diagnosed chronic pain syndrome characterized by severe pain and functional disability following a minor injury. The affected limb often has evidence of changes in sensory, vasomotor, sudomotor/edema, and/or motor/tropic function. The diagnosis of CRPS in the pediatric population is increasingly common, especially among female adolescents. The pain experience of adolescents with CRPS is best understood using the biopsychosocial framework, and the most effective treatment programs target biological, psychological, and social factors...

Nurses and healthcare professionals may have difficulty adjusting to and comprehending their experiences when a patient’s life ends. This has the potential to interfere with patient care. Reflection on past events and actions enables critical discovery of strategies to benefit both nurses and patients. This qualitative phenomenological study explores the lived experiences of nurses caring for dying pediatric patients. The philosophical underpinning of Merleau-Ponty (2008), in combination with the research method of van Manen (1990), was used for this study...
