INTRODUCTION: In 2013, the Pediatric Association of the Netherlands launched an evidence-based guideline 'Palliative care for children'. To promote implementation in daily practice and hereby improve quality of paediatric palliative care, we aimed to develop a functional individualised paediatric palliative care plan (IPPCP) that covers physical, psychological, spiritual and social functioning, with great emphasis on the guideline's recommendations, advance care planning and patients' and parents' preferences and desires...

Survival from critical illness can expose children to an array of negative physical and psychological problems. While the perspective of parents and professionals have been well documented, there is limited understanding of how childhood critical care survivors make sense of their experiences in relation to psychosocial well-being. We aimed to explore long-term psychosocial well-being of childhood survivors of critical illness through their stories. A qualitative, exploratory study using serial in-depth interviews was employed...

AIM: With increasing survival rates in paediatric malignancies, the quality-of-life of children during hospitalisation should be given more attention. We aimed to identify factors associated with psychological and psychosomatic symptoms (PPS) that required medication among children hospitalised for treatment of malignancies. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed data of 190 patients aged 2-18 years old. They were diagnosed with malignant diseases and admitted for treatment at St...

BACKGROUND: This systematic review is the first step in a study investigating the resilience methods and processes in families of children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. In particular, this review will focus on chronic or persistent pain, as a common symptom of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, which is the most common rheumatic disease in childhood. The experience of persistent pain can add to the functional disability associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Resilience has relevance to all areas of paediatric psychology, and targeted attention to child, sibling, and parent strengths within the context of paediatric chronic pain and juvenile idiopathic arthritis in particular will augment the field on numerous levels...

AIM: The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22qDS) is a genetic syndrome that results in a complex physical, behavioural and psychological phenotype. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is an established clinical outcome that has been minimally studied in children with 22qDS. The purpose of this study was to explore HRQOL among children and adolescents with 22qDS from the perspective of the child and to determine how their HRQOL measures compare to those of a healthy peer group and a chronic disease peer group...

Vitiligo is a dermatological disease; its exact prevalence is unknown among the paediatric population. We are reporting a case of vitiligo at birth for the first time in Burkina Faso, in the Teaching Hospital Souro Sanou of Bobo-Dioulasso, Paediatric Department. He is a male child, born from HIV-1 positive parents; we received him when he was 2 months to be followed in connection with the prevention of motherto-child transmission. He showed achromic lesions on the skin and on skin appendages at birth. In addition to congenital vitiligo we mentioned, several diagnostic hypotheses were discussed...

INTRODUCTION: Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by short stature, skeletal and haematological/lymphatic defects, distinctive facies, cryptorchidism, and a wide spectrum of congenital heart defects. Recurrent features also include variable cognitive deficits and behavioural problems. Recent research has been focused on the assessment of prevalence, age of onset and characterization of psychiatric features in this disorder. Herein, we evaluated the prevalence of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety and depressive symptoms and syndromes in a cohort of individuals with clinical and molecular diagnosis of NS...

BACKGROUND: Burns are considered one of the biggest wounds and the most devastating injuries humans can receive as they have prolonged consequences which are not only physical, but psychological in addition to the cost of treatment. The aim of the study was to explore the relationships between socio-demographic factors (SDF) and the incidence and mechanisms of burn injuries in children. The objectives were to identify the multiple and various factors responsible for the occurrence of significant burns in children; to explore and investigate the relationship between these factors; to critically analyse SDF on the incidence and mechanisms of burns and to develop a contextual model with a view to informing future health care policy and health promotion programmes...

BACKGROUND: Pressure garment therapy (PGT) is an established treatment for the prevention and treatment of hypertrophic scarring; however, there is limited evidence for its effectiveness. Burn survivors often experience multiple issues many of which are not adequately captured in current PGT trial measures. To assess the effectiveness of PGT it is important to understand what outcomes matter to patients and to consider whether patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) can be used to ascertain the effect of treatments on patients' health-related quality of life...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this case report is to describe a multimodal pain therapeutic concept including the adjunct use of pregabalin in a 4.5 year-old child after forefoot amputation. Phantom limb pain and sensation is a complex pain syndrome that is difficult to treat and prevent. 70-75% of all children develop such a pain syndrome after amputation. We describe here a paediatric patient who underwent forefoot amputation following traumatic foot injury and received multimodal pain therapy including pregabalin...

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea in children is associated with significant medical and psychological morbidities. Polysomnographic testing is the gold-standard method for diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. However, laboratory-based polysomnography is expensive and associated with a substantial healthcare burden. Thus, a simple valid tool to accurately identify those at high risk of obstructive sleep apnea is essential. We performed a retrospective cross-sectional study of children referred to the Youthdale Child and Adolescent Sleep Clinic...

BACKGROUND: Acne vulgaris (acne) is a common adolescent skin condition. It is associated with negative psychological impacts and sufferers do not easily seek help, hence is undertreated. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the self-reported prevalence, severity and psychological sequelae of acne, together with assessing help-seeking behaviour and its barriers, in separate school and hospital samples. We explored opportunistic treatment by paediatricians. METHODS: Self-reported survey with participants drawn from: (1) 120 adolescents aged 13-18 in a London tertiary paediatric outpatient department and (2) 482 adolescents from two London schools, aged 11-18...

In recent years, most of the focus on improving the quality of paediatric care in low-income countries has been on improving primary care using the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness, and improving triage and emergency treatment in hospitals aimed at reducing deaths in the first 24 hours. There has been little attention paid to improving the quality of care for children with chronic or complex diseases. Children with complicated forms of tuberculosis (TB), including central nervous system and chronic pulmonary TB, provide examples of acute and chronic multisystem paediatric illnesses that commonly present to district-level and second-level referral hospitals in low-income countries...

It is important that paediatric orthopaedic surgeons recognise that psychological conditions may present with musculoskeletal symptoms. Identification through careful and sensitive history taking is vital. There is a lack of training in this regard in paediatric orthopaedics. We present a series of cases initially referred for a musculoskeletal complaint. Further probing revealed an underlying psychological problem which was neither picked up by the referring physician nor volunteered by the patient. In our opinion, it is important that this training omission is addressed as such psychological problems may be devastating for these individuals and their families...

Synopsis One of the key aspects of good health care for children and young people is the prevention and management of pain. The experience of persistent pain in children and adolescents not only has a major impact on physical, emotional, social, and developmental well-being, but also impacts the broader world, which includes family, school, and social networks. The multidisciplinary pediatric pain clinic adopts a holistic approach to care through a biopsychosocial model. One outcome of an initial pediatric pain clinic review is the creation of a pain management plan that addresses the pharmacological, physical, psychological, and other domains of care...
