BACKGROUND: Multidisciplinary team meetings (MDTMs) are already in use for certain areas in healthcare (e.g. treatment of cancer). Due to the lack of common standards and accessibility for the applied IT systems, their potential is not yet completely exploited. OBJECTIVES: Common requirements for MDTMs shall be identified and aggregated into a process definition to be automated by an application architecture utilizing modern standards in electronic healthcare, e...

BACKGROUND: The Family Nutrition and Physical Activity Screening Tool (FNPA) evaluates family behavioural and environmental factors associated with pediatric obesity, but it is unknown if FNPA scores differ among youth across obesity severities. Our aim was to determine the association between the FNPA and obesity severity in youth referred to weight management. METHODS: Upon initiating treatment, height, weight, and the FNPA were collected according to standard procedures...

OBJECTIVE: HASH(0x413f0e0) OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of the Family Nutrition and Physical Activity (FNPA) screening tool with weight status, percent body fat, and acanthosis nigricans (AN) in 6- to 13-year-old children from a low socioeconomic, urban community. METHODS: Children (n=415) from four elementary schools located around Flint, Michigan were assessed for body mass index, percent body fat, and AN. The FNPA screening tool was completed by parents...

This paper describes FitKids360, a stage 2 pediatric weight management program. FitKids360 is a physician-referred, multicomponent, low-cost healthy lifestyle program for overweight and obese youth 5-16 years of age and their families. FitKids360 provides an evidence-based approach to the treatment of pediatric overweight by targeting patients' physical activity, screen time, and dietary behaviors using a family-centered approach. The intervention begins with a two-hour orientation and assessment period followed by six weekly sessions...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the independent and combined association of self-efficacy and fatness with physical activity in 5(th) grade children. METHODS: Participants were 281 students (10.4 ± 0.7 years). Physical activity was assessed using a self-report question. Self-efficacy to be physically active was assessed using a 5-point scale. Body fatness was assessed by bioelectrical impedance. Descriptive statistics, ANOVA, and t-tests were used. RESULTS: There were no differences in reported days of physical activity between boys and girls, and normal-fat and over-fat children...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of the Family Nutrition and Physical Activity (FNPA) screening tool with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in 10-year old children. METHODS: A total of 119 children were assessed for body mass index (BMI), percent body fat, waist circumference, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL), and resting blood pressure. A continuous CVD risk score was created using total cholesterol to HDL-cholesterol ratio (TC:HDL), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and waist circumference...

BACKGROUND: The American Heart Association Position Statement on Cardiovascular Health Promotion in Public Schools encourages school-based interventions for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) through risk factor prevention or reduction in children with an emphasis on creating an environment that promotes healthy food choices and physical activity (PA). In an effort to address issues related to CVD risk factors including obesity in Michigan children, a multi-disciplinary team of Michigan State University (MSU) faculty, clinicians, and health profession students was formed to "(S)partner" with elementary school physical education (PE) teachers and MSU Extension staff to develop and implement a cost-effective, sustainable program aimed at CVD risk factor prevention and management for 5th grade students...

PURPOSE: To determine frequencies of different types of chronic uveitis and the possible associated conditions. METHODS: In the retrospective study a review is made of all 336 consecutive patients with chronic uveitis seen during 1983 through 1993. All patients were evaluated ophthalmologically and most of them medically. Traumatic uveitis was excluded from this study. RESULTS: There were 171 (51%) males and 165 (49%) females. Of 336 patients with chronic uveitis, 194 (58%) had anterior uveitis, 76 (23%) had isolated posterior uveitis, 38 (11%) had panuveitis and 28 (8%) intermediate uveitis...

The authors report a series of 128 cases of esophageal burns due to caustic soda, treated between 1974 and 1987 in the Dept. of Surgery of the Friguia Kimbo Alumina Factory Hospital. 95% of patients were children aged less than 15. Ingestion was generally accidental. In view of the delay before patients were seen, in addition to parenteral alimentation, nutrition was covered by an alimentation gastrostomy performed in 96% of patients immediately following admission. Dilator treatment was used in 37 patients with 29 good result, 6 failures, and 2 perforations with 1 death...
