OBJECTIVES: Hospitalizations for ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC) are measured to indicate healthcare system quality, with the premise that fewer hospitalizations would occur with better preceding outpatient care. Our objective was to identify outpatient care received in the 7 days preceding acute pediatric hospitalizations, and to compare receipt of outpatient care by hospitalization type (ACSC vs. non-ACSC). METHODS: This was a retrospective, observational study using a 10-state database of Medicaid claims to identify outpatient visits within 7 days before acute, unplanned hospitalization for children ages 0-17 years...

BACKGROUND: Case-based morning reports are a staple of residency education. Little is known about the role of game-based learning in facilitating case-based discussions. OBJECTIVES: Compare an educational game that can be used for creating impromptu case-based sessions to traditional morning report. METHODS: We created a game called Differential Diagnosis Slot Machine, which allows participants to quickly generate theoretical cases for discussion...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between chronic school absenteeism and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) among school-aged children. METHODS: We conducted a secondary analysis of data from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health including children 6-17 years old. The primary outcome variable was chronic school absenteeism (> 15 days absent in past year). We examined the association between chronic school absenteeism and ACEs using logistic regression with weighting for individual ACEs, summed ACE score, and latent class analysis of ACEs...

OBJECTIVE: Group care has been shown to be effective for delivery of infant well child care. Centering Parenting™ (CP) is a model of group dyad care for mothers and infants. CP may improve quality and efficiency of preventive care, particularly for low income families. Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) may be optimal sites for implementation, however facilitators and barriers may be unique. The aim of this qualitative study was to assess stakeholder perspectives on the feasibility of implementing Centering Parenting(TM) in FQHCs in Baltimore...

OBJECTIVE: To assess adults' perceptions regarding the health and well-being of children today relative to their own health and well-being as youth and the potential for intergenerational differences in those perceptions. METHODS: A cross-sectional, internet-based survey of a nationally representative household sample. The study was conducted using GfK Custom Research's web-enabled KnowledgePanel®, a probability-based panel representative of the U.S. POPULATION: We assessed perceptions of children's health and well-being today compared to when respondents were growing up including (1) physical and mental health and (2) children's education, exercise, diet, health care, safety of communities and emotional support from families, groups and organizations...

OBJECTIVE: Little is known about Latino parents' perceptions of weight-related language in English or Spanish, particularly for counseling obese youth. We sought to identify English and Spanish weight counseling terms perceived as desirable for providers to use, motivating, and inoffensive by Latino parents across demographic groups. METHODS: Latino parents of children treated at urban safety-net clinics completed surveys in English or Spanish. Parents rated the desirable, motivating, or offensive properties of terms for excess weight using a 5-point scale...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the prevalence of reasons why children and adolescents stop and restart attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medicine and whether functional impairment is present after stopping medicine. METHODS: We used the prospective longitudinal cohort from the Multimodal Treatment of Study of Children with ADHD. At the 12 year follow-up when participants were a mean of 21.1 years old, 372 participants (76% male, 64% Caucasian) reported ever taking ADHD medicine...

OBJECTIVE: Clinician prompts increase the likelihood of guideline-recommended corrective actions (preventive medication prescription, dose change, and/or adherence promotion) for symptomatic children with poorly controlled or persistent asthma in the primary care setting, but it is unclear if all children benefit equally. The objectives of this study were to identify whether asthma severity, visit type, and current preventive medication use were predictive of corrective actions during visits for children with symptomatic asthma, and determine whether these factors modified the impact of a prompting intervention...

BACKGROUND: Picky eating is common in children. Few studies have examined predictors of picky eating, and the association of picky eating with weight status and dietary quality is inconsistent in prior literature. We aimed to identify predictors of picky eating and to test the association of picky eating with child body mass index z-score (BMIz), dietary quality, and micronutrient intake. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional analysis of baseline data from a randomized controlled trial to prevent obesity among 506 preschoolers attending Head Start...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated which adolescent health risk behaviors are of concern to parents generally, according to adolescent age, gender, and in the context of perceived risk. We compared adolescent and parent reports of the presence of health-risk behaviors and factors predicting agreement. METHODS: Three hundred adolescents aged 13 to 18 years (mean, 14.5 years; 52% female) who presenting for well care completed an electronic screening tool used to assess health-risk behaviors...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the prevalence of positive screening scores, construct validity, and opportunities for follow up in a large sample of adolescents who chose to fill out the Pediatric Symptom Checklist - Youth Form (PSC-Y) through the Mental Health America (MHA) website. METHODS: MHA sent researchers a de-identified dataset of all PSC-Y's submitted to MHA from May 15, 2015 to May 14, 2016. The analytic dataset contained 29,886 PSC-Y forms from youth aged 11-17 who sought out the website and chose to fill out the PSC-Y anonymously and independently online...

PURPOSE: No standardized curricula exist for training residents in the special needs of children with medical complexity (CMC). We assessed resident satisfaction, knowledge and behavior after implementing a novel online curriculum composed of multimedia modules on care of CMC utilizing virtual simulation. METHODS: We conducted a randomized controlled trial of residents across North America. A web-based curriculum of 6 self-paced, interactive, multimedia modules was developed...

OBJECTIVE: Transfer of care sign-outs (TOCS) for admissions from a Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) have unique challenges. Standardized and reliable assessment tools for TOCS remain elusive. We describe the development, reliability, and validity of a TOCS assessment tool. METHODS: Video recordings of resident TOCS were assessed to capture four domains: completeness, synopsis, foresight, and professionalism. In phase one, 56 TOCS were used to modify the tool and improve reliability...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Outdoor free play is important for preschoolers' physical activity, health and development. Certain temperamental characteristics are associated with obesity, nutrition, and sedentary behaviors in preschoolers, but the relationship between temperament and outdoor play has not been examined. This study examined whether there is an association between temperament and outdoor play in young children. METHODS: Healthy children aged 1 to 5 years recruited to The Applied Research Group for Kids (TARGetKids!), a community-based primary care research network, from July 2008 to September 2013 were included...
