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...

Physical activity is important but may be difficult to evaluate in young children (YC) with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) because of parents' fears of hypoglycemia, difficulties engaging YC in physical activity, and use of assessment devices. This study aimed to explore the acceptability and feasibility of an in-lab exercise session for YC with T1D. Ten YC ages 3 through7 years with T1D participated in a 20-minute exercise session while wearing blinded continuous glucose monitors and accelerometers. High acceptability was found for participation in the exercise session; high feasibility and acceptability were reported for the assessments...

Pulmonary emboli (PE) and deep venous thrombus (DVT) are two conditions considered to affect primarily adults. These conditions, however, can and do affect neonates, toddlers, school-age children, and adolescents. Factors contributing to the development of PE and DVT are often associated with genetic mutations in Antithrombin III, Protein C, and Protein S. This article presents a primary care case study of an adolescent who was diagnosed with and underwent treatment for bilateral PE and a DVT, and reviews the underlying primary genetic mutations, diagnostic workup, and management of his clinical condition...

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder typically diagnosed in the toddler and preschool years. Intensive early intervention (EI) using applied behavior analytic procedures is the evidenced-based intervention most effective in improving developmental outcomes. Unfortunately, there are numerous barriers to accessing EI services for toddlers with ASD. This article addresses (a) the process of developing an EI program using primarily applied behavior analytic services with multidisciplinary health care providers, (b) a description of the service delivery provided, (c) educational and training programs to increase qualified staff, and (d) advocacy efforts to improve community capacity...

It has been well documented that a serious injury to an athlete can cause psychological symptoms such as depression. However, much of the literature focuses on the collegiate athlete. Little is known about the prevalence of depressive symptoms in the young athlete who experiences an injury that adversely affects the ability to compete in his/her selected sport or may end athletic participation altogether. As sports specialization becomes increasingly widespread and age of participation becomes younger, depressive symptoms may be found in child and adolescent athletes...

INTRODUCTION: Evidence suggests that urinary and fecal incontinence and abnormal voiding and defecation dynamics are different manifestations of the same syndrome. This article reports the success of an innovative program for care of children with incontinence and dysfunctional elimination. This program is innovative because it is the first to combine subspecialty services (urology, gastroenterology, and psychiatry) in a single point of care for this population and the first reported independent nurse practitioner-run specialty referral practice in a free-standing pediatric ambulatory subspecialty setting...

INTRODUCTION: Pediatric patient falls with head-to-floor impact have the greatest potential for injury. METHODS: An objective measure of head injury severity, the Head Injury Criterion (HIC15), was calculated from anthropometric and biomechanical components of patient falls. A secondary aim was to compare HIC15 levels with the hospital's subjective assignment of level of harm (1-9 scale) used for regulatory reports. RESULTS: Adverse event reports yielded a sample of 49 falls from heights of 72...

INTRODUCTION: Our objective was to describe the early breastfeeding experience of primiparous women. METHODS: Healthy, primiparous women intending to exclusively breastfeed downloaded a commercial infant feeding mobile application (app) during their postpartum hospitalization. Women free-texted breastfeeding thoughts and experiences through 8 weeks postpartum in the app's diary. Diary content was qualitatively coded. RESULTS: Thirty-five participants completed diaries and were included in analyses...

BACKGROUND: Rising incidence and prevalence of childhood obesity and related costly health consequences suggest the need for an effective training tool at the primary care level. Evidence-based studies show how a healthy diet and physical activity help reduce the incidence of obesity. METHODS: The objective for this quality improvement project was to evaluate the effectiveness of an evidence-based educational tool in improving healthy eating and physical activity habits among overweight and obese children in a primary care setting over 3 months...

Qualitative secondary analysis (QSA) is the use of qualitative data that was collected by someone else or was collected to answer a different research question. Secondary analysis of qualitative data provides an opportunity to maximize data utility, particularly with difficult-to-reach patient populations. However, qualitative secondary analysis methods require careful consideration and explicit description to best understand, contextualize, and evaluate the research results. In this article, we describe methodologic considerations using a case exemplar to illustrate challenges specific to qualitative secondary analysis and strategies to overcome them...

OBJECTIVE: This study presents results from an educational training to increase adolescent dating violence (ADV) screening among primary care clinicians and provides adolescents' perceptions regarding discussing ADV with their clinicians. METHODS: A national dating violence advocacy group provided a training in ADV to 16 clinicians serving an urban health clinic. Knowledge, self-efficacy, and expectations were examined before training, after training, and at a 6-month follow-up...

PURPOSE: To examine the associations between feeding practices and eating environments of low-socioeconomic Hispanic infants. METHODS: Secondary analysis of cross-sectional data from a sample of 62 low-income immigrant Hispanic mothers and their infants (age range = 4-12 months). Measures of infant feeding practices (food groups and beverages consumption) and eating environment domains were included using the Infant Feeding Scale. RESULTS: TV exposure and allowing the infant to play with toys during meals significantly correlated with intake of energy-dense foods in 4- to 6-month-olds (p = ...

INTRODUCTION: Confidential care is recommended for all adolescents to facilitate risk behavior screening and discussion of sensitive topics. Only 40% of adolescents receive confidential care. The purpose of this integrative review is to describe research related to the practice of confidential care for adolescents. Evidence was analyzed to identify strategies to increase confidential care and improve risk behavior screening. METHOD: Whittemore and Knafl's integrative literature review process was applied...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to explore reasons why parents may refuse administration of the human papillomavirus vaccine to their children. The data from this multisite study will contribute to our understanding of why parents may refuse administration of the vaccine. METHODS: This mixed-methods study took place in several pediatric settings after a pilot study was completed. After a health visit in which the vaccine was refused, a survey was provided to the parent in a private room...
