Objectives There continues to be a pressing need to increase referrals to family-centered early intervention (EI) for more eligible infants and toddlers with inadequate consideration for the role of senior, mentoring professionals. Methods To address a dearth in our understanding, a subset of Pediatric Residency Training Directors shared views on EI, referral, and relevant training efforts. Results Participating directors primarily reported limited understanding of EI. Greater knowledge of family-focused EI correlated with its perceived helpfulness (r = ...

The multiple socioecological determinants of asthma mandate that pediatricians develop a treatment strategy beyond the practice-based setting. To expand to a more impactful community-based role, pediatricians must look to form partnerships with groups that are capable of promoting social and environmental change. Traditionally, these groups have included schools, governmental agencies, and child care establishments. One group that is not actively being availed of are employers who have shown success in improving adult-based outcomes through wellness programs...

INTRODUCTION: The systematic assessment of child development in the first years of life is an essential component of pediatric health checkups. The Ages and Stages Questionnaire, third edition (ASQ-3) is the most validated scale, and has been recommended by the UNICEF to verify if children have a normal neurological development. It is a monitoring instrument to assess the main developmental areas, including communication, gross motor, fine motor, personal-social, and problem solving skills, and to compare the local population to the international development standards...

In Italy, in 2016, we conducted a cross-sectional survey to estimate vaccine hesitancy and investigate its determinants among parents of children aged 16-36 months. Data on parental attitudes and beliefs about vaccinations were collected through a questionnaire administered online or self-administered at pediatricians' offices and nurseries. Parents were classified as pro-vaccine, vaccine-hesitant or anti-vaccine, according to self-reported tetanus and measles vaccination status of their child. Multivariable logistic regression was used to investigate factors associated with hesitancy...

Growth is one of the most important characteristics of human development. This process occurs from the moment of conception through the final stages of puberty. There are multiple factors that contribute to growth in humans. Although it may seem complex, a pediatrician should note that growth can be fairly predictable. The advantage to predictable changes in growth is that clinicians should be able to promptly detect any deviation and evaluate it in a timely manner. One of the most helpful tools to assess changes in growth is the use of a growth chart...

Delayed puberty is defined as the absence of physical signs of puberty 2 to 2.5 standard deviations above the mean age and affects approximately 2% of adolescents. Causes of delayed puberty are broadly divided into two categories: hypergonadotropic hypogonadism and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. One exception to this classification system is constitutional delay of growth and puberty, the most common cause of delayed puberty. For the general pediatrician, knowledge of the different causes and initial steps to evaluation is crucial when a patient with delayed puberty presents...

Premature thelarche is a benign condition that affects young girls and may be interpreted as a sign of central precocious puberty (CPP). Parental concern is common when breast development is noted in a young girl. It is important to differentiate premature thelarche from CPP, as the latter is a more serious disorder that may affect final adult height and menarcheal age, and may have psychological implications as well. Distinguishing between the two conditions clinically may help the patients avoid unnecessary testing...

I recently diagnosed my first adolescent patient with new-onset HIV. As a primary care pediatrician, these cases are rare. I cried with the shock of the initial diagnosis, just as the patient did when I told him. One of my first thoughts was how could I have served him better. He had been inconsistent with condom use, and had several partners. I had encouraged safe sex practices, told him to talk to his partners about pregnancy prevention, and screened for sexually transmitted disease nearly every time he came into my office...

Recent literature, public policy, and funding opportunities call attention to the need for better increased integration of health and mental health care services in primary care settings so as to best meet the needs of children and families. There are many benefits to such integration, but pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) face multiple barriers to identifying and managing patients with mental health difficulties. One way to address this problem is through the integration of psychologists into primary care settings who can collaborate with PCPs to provide integrated behavioral health care to youth and families...
