AIM: Very preterm (VPT) children (≤32 weeks) have school readiness difficulties across multiple domains, but routine follow-up is often limited. We assessed the performance of VPT children on the Before School Check (B4SC), a community-based screening programme of school readiness at 4 years of age. METHODS: VPT children discharged from Wellington and Auckland Neonatal Intensive Care Units (2005-2009) were compared to a national control cohort born during the same period...

AIM: With the increase in popularity of energy drinks come multiple concerns about the associated health indicators of young people. The current study aims to describe the frequency of consumption of energy drinks in a nationally representative sample of adolescents and to explore the relationship between energy drink consumption and health risk behaviours, body size and mental health. METHODS: Data were collected as part of Youth'12, a nationally representative survey of high school students in New Zealand (2012)...

REVIEW
Marius M Flege, Simon F Thomsen
Remuneration in paediatric research poses an ethical dilemma. Too large a sum might cause parents to enrol their children in research projects with no benefit for the child, whereas too modest a sum might hamper recruitment. The institutional review boards have the responsibility to only approve remuneration in paediatric trials with ethically sound research plans. However, little is known about which factors influence institutional review boards' evaluation of remuneration in paediatric research.

AIM: To identify strengths and obstacles for improving the quality of newborn care in the Solomon Islands. Improving the quality of newborn care is a priority in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Action Plan for Healthy Newborns in the Western Pacific. The neonatal mortality rate in the Solomon Islands, a lower-middle-income country, has improved slower than overall child mortality. In 2013, neonatal mortality (13.2/1000) constituted 44% of under-5 deaths (30.1/1000). METHODS: A cross-sectional study of newborn care in five provincial hospitals using a World Health Organization assessment tool for hospital quality of care...

AIM: Globally, rates of paediatric food-induced anaphylaxis (FIA) are increasing. Little data is available regarding the epidemiology of FIA among New Zealand (NZ) children. This study investigated the incidence of paediatric (0-14 years) FIA hospital presentations in NZ over a 10-year period. METHODS: Ministry of Health public hospital discharge data from 2006 to 2015 were analysed using FIA-related International Classification of Diseases codes (T78.0 - anaphylactic shock due to adverse food reaction and T78...

AIM: The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is effective in preventing cervical cancer, but its global uptake rate in vulnerable populations is unsatisfactory. Physician's recommendation is an important determinant for vaccine uptake, but we have limited understanding on the contributing factors of physician's recommendation. This study investigated whether the knowledge, attitudes and vaccination status of medical students would affect their intention to recommend HPV vaccination. METHODS: This is a population-representative survey of medical schools in Hong Kong...

AIM: To determine (i) the proportion of different referral sources for new referrals to paediatric specialist outpatient clinics and (ii) any association of referral source with utilisation of additional health services. METHODS: Survey of parents presenting with their child at five paediatric specialist outpatient clinics at two Melbourne public hospitals. RESULTS: Just over half (52%) of the respondents were referred by a general practitioner (GP)...

AIM: Haemophilus influenzae continues to cause invasive disease in children despite widespread Hib immunisation. The significance of non-B serotypes continues to be investigated, with evidence of increased invasive non-typeable H. influenzae (NTHi) world-wide. The aim of this study was to examine the current epidemiological and clinical features of invasive H. influenzae disease in children in Queensland, Australia. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all cases of invasive H...

AIM: To assess a national sample of Australian parental confidence in general practitioner (GP) care for illness and injury for their children. METHODS: Cross-sectional, internet-based survey of a national, representative sample of parents of children birth - 17 years in Australia was used. Purposeful recruitment was used to achieve a national, representative sample of 2100 Australian parents, reflective of demographic and geographic distribution based on census data...

AIM: Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) is the most severe form of primary immunodeficiency and is fatal in infancy if untreated. As early diagnosis is associated with improved outcomes, SCID is an ideal condition to consider for inclusion in a newborn screening (NBS) programme in Australia. In this feasibility study, we evaluated the EnLite Neonatal TREC kit for detection of T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) from NBS dried blood spots for the identification of known SCID patients in Victoria...

AIM: Female anorectal malformation is characterised by communication to the exterior by a fistula. There are conflicting reports of the presence of normal anus in the fistula region. This study was undertaken to assess the histopathology and immunohistochemical correlation of the terminal portion of the fistula in female patients and suitability of fistula incorporation in the reconstruction of the neo-anus. METHODS: This prospective study included 13 patients of female anorectal malformation...

AIM: To determine the range of cerebral blood flow velocities (CBFVs) and Doppler indices of cerebrovascular resistance in normal-term neonates as a baseline for a study of hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. METHODS: The CBFVs, resistive index (RI) and pulsatility index (PI) were measured in the anterior and middle cerebral arteries (ACA and MCA) of 38 normal neonates. RESULTS: The mean peak systolic, end diastolic and time-averaged velocities (PSV, EDV and TAV) were 36...

AIM: The management of births at borderline viability continues to present dilemmas for health professionals and parents. The aim of the study was to review local outcomes of infants born between 22 and 24 weeks of gestation between 2004 and 2010 in Western Australia (WA) to aid perinatal counselling. METHODS: Survival data for the study were sourced retrospectively from the Neonatal Clinical Care Unit and Department of Health records of births in WA. Neurodevelopmental follow-up outcomes were assessed using the most recent standardised assessment (Griffiths, Bayley-III and Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence, 3rd Ed) and medical examination of infants/children 12 months to 8 years from follow-up clinic appointments...

AIM: To determine whether participation in the continuous quality improvement (CQI) Audit and Best Practice for Chronic Disease programme improved care and outcomes for Indigenous children. METHODS: Data were collected from 59 Australian primary health-care centres providing services to Indigenous people and participating in the programme (February 2008 and December 2013). Indigenous children aged less than 2 years and centres that completed three or more consecutive annual audits within the 6-year study period were included...

AIM: To describe nutritional practices among preterm extremely low-birthweight (ELBW) infants and their impact on growth and to compare differences in nutritional intervention and comorbidities between those with limited growth velocity (GV < 25th percentile) and those with GV > 25th percentile. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted to assess total protein and energy intake for week 1, days 14, 21 and 28 of life. Post-natal growth was calculated by measuring GV using an exponential model...

AIM: Associations between short sleep duration and obesity and the relationship between obesity and chronic illness are well documented. Obese children are likely to become obese adults. To date, there is a paucity of information regarding sleep duration and quality for Indigenous Australian people. It may be that poor-quality, short sleep is contributing to the gap in health outcomes for Indigenous people compared with non-Indigenous adults and children. This study sought to investigate the possibility that poor sleep quality may be contributing to health outcomes for Indigenous children by exploring associations between sleep duration and body mass index (BMI)...
