BACKGROUND: Poor antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence leads to drug resistance and treatment failures. The options for second and third line ART regimens, particularly for pediatric patients, are very limited in low and middle-income countries. HIV-infected children are mostly passive drug-takers, thus caretakers play a very important role in assuring ART adherence. Pediatric ART adherence is still a challenging problem in Vietnam since non-adherence is the major risk factor for treatment failure...

The use of pediatric nurse practitioners in emergency departments is common in the United States. Defining competencies that are specific to the wide span of urgent and emergent pediatric conditions, along with a recognized practice standard for education and method of certification for pediatric nurse practitioners practicing in emergency care, is needed. Pediatric emergency departments require a team of providers with a skill set that aligns with each patient's needs. The use of qualified pediatric nurse practitioners on these teams, both primary care and acute care certified, to provide care to these children is expanding, with implications for education and research...

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is the most common pediatric overgrowth syndrome. Features characteristic of the BWS phenotype include both physical attributes, such as macroglossia, abdominal wall defects, gigantism, nevus flammeus, visceromegaly, and mid-face hypoplasia, as well as biochemical abnormalities such as hypoglycemia. It is essential for the neonatal nurse to be able to recognize BWS in the patient's early years of life because of the increased frequency of medical complications, malformations, and the increased risk of embryonic malignancies...

AIMS: To determine if there are brain activity differences between pediatric intensive care nurses and allied health professionals during pain intensity rating tasks and test whether these differences are related to the population observed (infant or adult) and professional experience. BACKGROUND: The underestimation of patients' pain by healthcare professionals has generally been associated with patterns of change in neural response to vicarious pain, notably reduced activation in regions associated with affective sharing and increased activation in regions associated with regulation, compared with controls...

BACKGROUND: With great advances in medical and surgical care, most congenital heart disease patients are living in to adulthood and require lifelong surveillance and expert care for adult onset complications. Care lapse and lack of successful transfer from pediatric to adult care put young adults at risk for increased morbidity and premature death. Hence, transition and transfer from pediatric to adult care is a crucial and critical process to provide access to specialized care and lifelong surveillance...

The optimal care of children with medical complexity (CMC) requires involvement from a network of professionals that includes physicians, nurses, ancillary service providers, and educators. Pediatric health care providers typically have early and frequent contact with the families of CMC. Therefore, they are in a unique position to connect families to developmental, educational, and psychosocial supports. This article reviews important government and community programs that support CMC living in the United States...

Referral and flow management is an important part of outpatient care; some patients require to be seen earlier than the next available appointment because of the nature of their presentation. We did not have a clear pathway for urgent patients being referred to our pediatric neurology service. When we reviewed this process in our Quality Improvement meeting we identified wide variation in the length of time such patients wait to be seen in clinic ranging from 2 to 11 weeks. Only 25% of patients identified as requiring urgent clinic appointments were seen in clinic within 2 weeks of triage...
