Parental perceptions of disease-severity and health-related quality of life in school-age children with congenital heart disease.

J Spec Pediatr Nurs 2018 Jan 20;23(1). Epub 2017 Dec 20.

Professor, Department of of Nursing, University of Massachusetts Boston, Boston, MA, USA.

Purpose: Understanding parents' perceptions of their child's health status is important as parents are drivers of healthcare utilization in the pediatric setting. Understanding parent-perceived disease-severity and its effects on a child's health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) is necessary to evaluate outcomes of care, improve care coordination, and inform policies focused on advancing family-centered care for pediatric cardiac patients. The impact of CHDs and disease-severity on the child's HRQOL has been investigated with inconsistent results. Read More

Comparison of two tools to assess dyad feeding interaction in infants with gastroesophageal reflux disease.

J Spec Pediatr Nurs 2018 Jan 4;23(1). Epub 2017 Dec 4.

University of Colorado, College of Nursing, Aurora, CO, USA.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the Mother-Infant/Toddler Feeding Scale (MITFS) and the Nursing Child Assessment Feeding Scale (NCAFS). Specific questions were as follows: (1) Are there differences between the results of the MITFS and the NCAFS tools in terms of rating infant feeding interactions? And (2) does one tool provide a more detailed, nuanced overview of the quality of feeding interactions than the other?
