The growing complexity of healthcare requires family and interprofessional partnerships to deliver effective care. Interprofessional coaching can enhance family-centred practice and collaboration. The purpose of this study was to explore the acceptability and feasibility of collaborative coaching training to improve family centredness within acute paediatric rehabilitation. Using a participatory action design, service providers (SPs; n = 36) underwent a 6-month coaching programme involving coaching workshops, learning triads, and tailored sessions with a licensed coach...

BACKGROUND: Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare, but potentially life-threatening complication of thermal injuries in children. The study objective was to systematically review the literature on paediatric TSS after burns or scalds, and describe our experience with this condition in Switzerland. METHODS: All tertiary paediatric healthcare centres managing burns and scalds in Switzerland were inquired. A systematic literature review was performed using EMBASE (1947-2016), MEDLINE (1946-2016), Web of Science (1900-2016) and Google Scholar in October 2016...

OBJECTIVE: While the prevalence of burns in children is highest in low and middle-income countries, most research on burn-related pain intensity and distress is carried out in high-income countries. In this study we assessed pain intensity and distress in paediatric patients with burns undergoing wound care procedures without distraction and parental presence in a South-African children's hospital and sought to identify predictors for the outcomes. METHODS: This observational study, carried out as part of a randomized controlled trial, took place at a burns unit in Cape Town, South Africa and included patients between the ages of 0 and 13 years undergoing their first or second wound care procedure...

We were very interested to read Scheier et al's brief report on the use of intranasal ketamine in their pediatric emergency department, specifically for pain and anxiety in children who had resisted venipuncture or intravenous placement (1). Intravenous access can be difficult for pre-hospital medical teams that are not specialised in paediatric care, namely when children complain of pain from, for example suspected fractures and burns.

BACKGROUND: Burns are a global public health problem. In South Africa, the rate of paediatric burn deaths is 5 times higher than other upper middle-income countries, with concentrations in impoverished settings. Globally, the majority of research focuses on expert and caregiver descriptions of burn occurrence, causation, and prevention, with limited consideration of children's perspectives. This study investigated children's understanding of the causation and prevention of childhood burns...

Referral guidelines for burn care are meant to assist in decision-making as regards patient transfer and admissions to specialized units. Little is known, however, concerning how closely they are followed and whether they are linked to patient care. This is the object of the current study, focused on the paediatric burns centre of the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa. All patients admitted to the centre during the winters of 2011-2015 (n = 1165) were included. The patient files were scrutinized to clarify whether the referral criteria in place were identified (seven in total) and to compile data on patient and injury characteristics...

Toh Prasetyono, I Caroline
A 2-year-old boy presented to the plastic and reconstructive surgery outpatient clinic with bilateral post-burn hand flexion contracture. The contracture had been released twice elsewhere. The third surgical repair on one hand at a time was conducted by the author (TOHP). However, inadeq.uate compliance to the postoperative splinting and exercise led to the recurrence of the contracture in the following year. A customised two-sided splint was therefore created to ensure proper placement and compliance. Reinforcement to the parents to encourage the boy to practise active exercise on demand was also an integral part of the management...

AIM: To establish if there is a correlation between burn incidence and social deprivation in order to formulate a more effective burns prevention strategy. METHODS: A quantitative retrospective review of International Burn Injury Database (IBID) was carried out over a period from 2006 to 2011 to obtain data for children referred to our burns centre in West Midlands. Social deprivation scores for geographical areas were obtained from Office of National Statistics (ONS)...

BACKGROUND: Paediatric burn injury is common and often serious. Injuries occur across New South Wales (NSW), with specialised treatment provided in a centralised burns unit. Early management prior to transfer is essential but variation is seen. OBJECTIVES: To determine if differences exist between referring hospital estimates of the total body surface area (TBSA) of burns, and estimates for the same burns by the Burns Unit. To consider if differences in estimations influence initial and ongoing management, and decisions regarding transfer/retrieval...

BACKGROUND: After a burn, optimal fluid resuscitation is critical for positive patient outcome. Although national guidelines advocate using resuscitation fluids of 4mL per kg body weight and percent body surface area (%BSA) for paediatric burns of >10% BSA, evidence in adults suggest that such volumes lead to over-resuscitation and related complications. Our aim was to investigate whether children managed with biosynthetic dressings (Biobrane™) and reduced fluid volumes remain well hydrated, as determined by clinical and laboratory parameters...

BACKGROUND: Children and adolescents with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) typically have reduced physical activity level and impaired aerobic and anaerobic exercise capacity when compared to their non-JIA counterparts. Low intensity exercise regimens appear to be safe in children with JIA and may results in improvements in overall physical function. Poor adherence to paediatric rheumatology treatment may lead to negative clinical outcomes and possibly increased disease activity. This includes symptoms such as pain, fatigue, quality of life, longer term outcomes including joint damage, as well as increase of healthcare associated costs...

In pregnancy early interventions are recommended for prevention of mother-to-child-transmission (PMTCT) of HIV. We examined whether pregnant women who live with HIV in Europe and are migrants encounter barriers in accessing HIV testing and care. Four cohorts within the European Pregnancy and Paediatric HIV Cohort Collaboration provided data for pooled analysis of 11 795 pregnant women who delivered in 2002-12 across ten European countries. We defined a migrant as a woman delivering in a country different from her country of birth and grouped the countries into seven world regions...

BACKGROUND: Partial thickness burns of up to 10% total body surface area (TBSA) in children are common injuries primarily treated in the outpatient setting using expensive silver-containing dressings. However, economic evaluations in the paediatric burns population are lacking to assist healthcare providers when choosing which dressing to use. The aim of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of three silver dressings for partial thickness burns ≤10% TBSA in children aged 0-15 years using days to full wound re-epithelialization as the health outcome...

OBJECTIVE: Traditional burn dressings demonstrate unfavourable tendencies of shrinking when wet and failing to maintain their integrity when manipulated. To overcome these obstacles, gel-forming fibre dressings have emerged as an alternative. Our objective was to observe the clinical properties and healing ability in the setting of burn wounds in a paediatric centre of a chitosan-based dressing containing silver. METHODS: A sample of 12 partial-thickness burns in 10 children were identified for treatment with the chitosan-based silver dressing...

The European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP) is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles for children from birth into young adulthood. Physical exercise and leisure are essential to the development of healthy bodies, strong minds, and social skills. All children, without regard to their physical or mental capacities, should be provided with the time, the leadership, the facilities, and the equipment needed to exercise through sports while enjoying playing, even competing, in an environment appropriate to their capacities and aspirations...
