Compared with adults, sexually active adolescents are at higher risk of acquiring chlamydia and gonorrhea (CT/GC). Additionally, sex trafficking and sexual violence are serious public health problems. Before this project, no data on the sexual behaviors of adolescents within Utah's Juvenile Justice System had been gathered in a systematic manner that provided a population-based perspective. From July 1, 2015, through December 30, 2016, nurses and staff in 18 Utah Juvenile Justice facilities screened all youth admitted to their facilities...

Child maltreatment is a leading cause of childhood morbidity in the United States, often leading to lifelong adverse health consequences. Currently, there is a nationwide shortage of child abuse pediatricians (CAPs), resulting in many unfilled child abuse positions throughout the United States. In addition, the number of future CAPs currently in fellowship training will meet neither the current need for CAPs nor provide replacements for the senior CAPs who will be retiring in the next 5 to 10 years. Although it is recognized that pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) play an important role in the care of maltreated children, there are few available data on the impact of the PNP as an integral member of the child abuse team...

This case report illustrates the value of a comprehensive perioperative pain assessment composed of quantitative sensory testing and self-reported measures that highlight the impact of pain experienced by a 14-year-old boy suffering from chronic low back pain and sciatica. Before surgery, the pain assessment revealed inefficient endogenous inhibitory pain control with presence of temporal summation of pain. The severe pain was constant and lasted for 18 months. The patient was in a high-anxiety state, and reported significant functional disability and poor sleep quality...

INTRODUCTION: Low-income caregiver perspectives on asthma management are understudied but may illuminate strategies to improve care delivery and child outcomes. METHOD: Purposive sampling methods were used to recruit 15 caregivers of children with frequent asthma emergency department visits. Interviews explored how poverty and stress affect asthma management. Grounded theory coding techniques were used to analyze the data. RESULTS: Participants were the biological mother (100%) and were poor (75% had mean annual income ≤ $30,000)...

The prevalence of food allergy has risen dramatically in the last two decades. Primary care providers encounter food-allergic children on a daily basis. Although the standard of care has traditionally been strict avoidance of the allergen and advisement to carry an epinephrine autoinjector in case of an accidental exposure resulting in a severe reaction, food allergy research has progressed in the past decade concerning various immunotherapies that may provide an alternate treatment strategy. Oral immunotherapy (OIT), performed under the supervision of an allergist, is the most widely studied of these therapies...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of the study was to assess the relationship between oral health educational activities of NPs and their current oral health knowledge and practices. METHOD: An online survey was distributed to practicing NPs and members of the NAPNAP organization. RESULTS: The study results from n = 147 NPs indicated an association between oral health CE attendance and knowledge on the age to initiate fluoride toothpaste, age for an initial dental visit, as well as NPs comfort in educating about oral hygiene, diets to reduce caries, bacterial transmission and caries development, in addition to the NPs comfort in performing a risk assessment, oral exam, and identifying decay and other oral pathology compared to NPs that had not attended a CE course...

The Play Nicely program is a multimedia training program designed to teach caregivers and health care professionals how to manage early childhood aggression and to use positive parenting practices. The aim of this article is to help the practicing clinician determine whether the Play Nicely program should be incorporated into his/her practice and to evaluate whether the program is effective at decreasing positive attitudes toward spanking in a socioeconomically disadvantaged population in both a resident pediatric clinic and a community center...

The purpose of this review was to describe methodologic considerations in using the National Survey of Children With Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN) for transition research in terms of variable inclusion and definition of transition outcomes and to provide suggestions for using NS-CSHCN for transition research. A systematic review was conducted. Inclusion criteria included use of NS-CSHCN data and transition as an outcome variable. Fourteen studies were included. Ten (71%) studies evaluated a sample of all CSHCN...

Adolescent School-Based Health Initiatives (ASBHIs) are designed to increase adolescent access to medical homes and services that are not otherwise available without significant barriers. ASBHIs have been proven to increase access to care for school-aged adolescents with unique needs and limited access to these much-needed medical services. For this descriptive study we conducted a needs assessment to understand and determine the needs and desires for a school-based health initiative in a middle school in the community...

METHODS: Parents completed surveys about their child with epilepsy, their own health and well-being, and the impact of epilepsy on unaffected siblings. RESULTS: The most common parental responses about the sibling were witnessing a seizure, protectiveness of the child with epilepsy, worry about seizures, belief that seizures cause pain, and pride toward the child with epilepsy...

Global efforts are underway to develop, implement and test health care transition (HCT) models of care. Most studies have focused on the transfer of care models. In contrast, the nurse-led interdisciplinary HCT model, Movin' On Up, provides comprehensive HCT services beginning in early adolescence. A retrospective analysis was conducted of data extracted from HCT records of 146 adolescents and emerging adults with spina bifida (with a mean age of 13.91 years) who were provided services in the Movin' On Up HCT program...

Pediatric feeding problems occur in 25% of the general pediatric population and up to 80% of those who have developmental delays. When feeding problems place the child at nutritional risk, families are typically encouraged to increase their child's intake. Family mealtime can become a battle, which further reinforces problematic feeding behaviors from the child and intensifies well-intentioned but unguided parental mealtime efforts. Family has an essential influence on feeding; however, studies to date neglect to address the family context of feeding difficulty...

INTRODUCTION: This study examined the perspectives of pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) regarding the needs of adolescents, parents/caregivers, clinicians, and institutions in the health care transition (HCT) process for adolescents/young adults. METHODS: PNPs (N = 170) participated in a luncheon for those interested in transition at an annual conference. Small groups discussed and recorded their perspectives related to health care transition from adolescent to adult services...

INTRODUCTION: Postpartum depression affects approximately 10% to 20% of mothers and impairs a mother's ability to engage with her child at an emotional and cognitive level, placing the child at greater risk for impaired development. Early diagnosis and management can reduce its negative impacts. Despite mothers being receptive to screening, screening rates are less than 50%. METHODS: This article provides an appraisal of the current state of the evidence on implementing screening for postpartum depression in pediatric primary care...

The number of infants born to mothers with opioid dependence is increasing at an alarming rate, indicating a 5-fold increase for women using opiates and a 3-fold increase in infants born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS; Tsai & Doan, 2016 ). Pediatric Nurse Practitioners providing primary care, who lack experience with this clinical presentation, require evidence-based knowledge to provide the appropriate care to infants born with neonatal abstinence syndrome. Mothers with opioid dependence often desire to breastfeed their newborns, and the PNP may unknowingly discourage them from breastfeeding...
