This study was a randomized controlled trial. Study sample included 70 children between 8 and 11 years with asthma allergy referred to Children's Hospital Clinic of Khorramabad, Lorestan Province in 2015; they were selected by possible non-consecutive sampling method...

This is a qualitative study with 10 participants, mothers of children aged between 2 months and 9 years. Snowball sampling was used for participants' selection, and semi-structured interviews conducted in participants' households...

The experience of pediatric cancer can be traumatic for children and their families. Living in rural, remote, and regional areas can add to the complexity of care and potential effects on this patient group. Children with cancer who live in rural, remote, and regional settings may be required to travel large distances and spend long periods of time away from home and their "normal" life during phases of treatment and illness. This can lead to further disruption of family life and to the child experiencing new routines and, eventually, difficulties adjusting to life after cancer...

This participatory action research study was situated within a larger research study, which investigated the development of a peer-led Aboriginal parent support program in the remote setting of Halls Creek in Western Australia. The aim of this smaller research component was to explore the self-perceived role of home visiting peer support workers in this remote area. Participatory Action Research methodology was employed, within which eleven Action Learning Sets were used to facilitate participant collaboration (n = 8)...

The number of early primary school (EPS) children (aged 4-8 years) with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) rises each year. Intensive insulin therapy (IIT) can be challenging for these children, as adult support may not be available in the school setting. Diabetes educators (DEs) working in the health system facilitate school diabetes care, which can be time-consuming given the large numbers of children with diabetes. These factors are potential barriers for IIT use in the EPS setting. To explore the experiences of Australian DEs who facilitate IIT use in the EPS setting, a qualitative, narrative inquiry method was used to conduct semi-structured telephone interviews with Australian DEs (n = 13) between December 2014 and June 2016...

The purpose of this study was to conduct a youth participatory action research project to address the disparities in sexually transmitted infection (STI) and HIV rates among homeless youth. Four youth served as co-investigators and cultural informants for the project. The team conducted focus groups (N = 22; ages 16-22) and in-depth interviews (N = 20; ages 18-24) with homeless youth to explore decisions about condomless sex, knowledge of STIs and HIV, health-care access for STI-related services, and perceptions about STI testing...

Emeritus Professor and Editor-in-Chief Edward Alan Glasper discusses why children's nurses must fully adopt the duty of candour in care delivery, which in some countries is a legal obligation, to ensure that consumers of healthcare and their families are apologized to, and communicated with, openly and honestly when things have gone wrong in their care.

Adolescents who have completed their high school studies converge on coastal areas of Australia annually to celebrate their freedom in events known as "Schoolies." The current body of research in relation to Schoolies demonstrates that adolescents consume alcohol and other drugs and engage in sexual activity during these events. Exactly how parents support adolescents in attending these events and how they perceive the Schoolies experience represent major gaps in the literature. To undertake this research, 7 parents were interviewed using a semi-structured approach...

Numerous policy directives highlight the need for planned and well-coordinated support to enable young people with long-term conditions and disabilities to negotiate the transition to adulthood, including making the leap from children-oriented to adult- centered health services. The journey is complex and multi-dimensional. For young people with a disability, long-term condition, or mental health problem there are additional challenges when transitioning between services with differences in expectations, delivery, and culture...

Previous research in pediatric diabetes management has focused on general child behavior, which is linked with treatment adherence and health outcomes in children with type 1 diabetes. Little is known about child diabetes behavior problems specifically. The current study aimed to develop and validate a measure of diabetes-specific child behavior problems, and parents' confidence in managing these behaviors. Participants were a community sample of 186 parents of children aged 2-10 years with type 1 diabetes, recruited via online parenting forums and advertisements placed in school and childcare newsletters throughout Australia...

This study aims to outline the current workplace culture of medication practice in a pediatric medical ward. The objective is to explore the perceptions of nurses in a pediatric clinical setting as to why medication administration errors occur. As nurses have a central role in the medication process, it is essential to explore nurses' perceptions of the factors influencing the medication process. Without this understanding, it is difficult to develop effective prevention strategies aimed at reducing medication administration errors...

The Japanese nursing education system only requires a general nursing qualification. After graduation, many Japanese nurses work within pediatric departments where they receive specialized training in pediatric care. An intervention program for promoting ethical nursing practices among patients and their families was implemented for pediatric nurses with 0-5 years pediatric nursing experience. The objective of this study was to clarify changes in nurses' recognition and behaviors, as well as the intervention's post-initiation durability...

The present study aimed to clarify expressive behaviors demonstrating "well done" in young children aged 3-7 years who were undergoing blood sampling or vaccination, as these behaviors were perceived by parents and nurses in Japan. This study applied a qualitative descriptive design using a retrospective recall approach. Data obtained from semi-structured interviews conducted with 14 parents and 15 nurses were divided into meaning units, each containing a complete expressive behavior demonstrating "well done...

Effective assessment tools are an essential element of early identification of problems, enabling early intervention in the first two or so years of life. This article reports on the development and evaluation of a Universal Assessment Tool for Early Help in Early Years. The project aim was to develop, pilot and evaluate a new universal assessment tool named "My Family Profile" for use within Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, from pregnancy until a child reaches 2/2.5 years of age. A flowchart demonstrates the stages of the process including how each step contributed toward the tool and end report (Neill et al...

Sudden unexplained death in infancy, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), is a global public health challenge. Despite public health campaigns and efforts, SIDS remains the leading cause of postneonatal mortality in many developed countries. In this article, we review SIDS, describe nursing's unique professional position in addressing this problem, and explore how the principles of social justice can inform nursing's response. Motivated by nursing's ethical and moral obligations, the profession is called to take an active role in educating others regarding this phenomenon, to participate in research, and to develop or advocate for policy that aims to reduce the incidence of SIDS on an international scale...

Adolescence is a period characterized by rapid physical, emotional, and mental growth and changes potentially resulting in health challenges. Anemia, which is a fairly common complication in this age group, is reported to negatively affect the cognitive ability of adolescents. Traditionally, ragi (Finger millet: Eleusine coracana), a cereal available in India, has been recommended as nutritional supplement to combat anemia because of its high protein and mineral content as well as anti-microbial property. This study sought to establish the effect of ragi in improving hematological parameters, body mass index, and scholastic performance among adolescent school girls...
