"Everybody's responsibility": Conceptualization of youth mental health in Kenya.

J Child Health Care 2018 Dec 28:1367493518814918. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

1 Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour, University of Leicester, Leicester, UK.

There is increasing interest in providing resilience-building interventions in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), but limited evidence on how young people and their carers process mental health and related supports. The aim of this study was to establish stakeholders' conceptualization of youth mental health in a disadvantaged area of Kenya through focus groups with 7 young people aged 14-17 years and their parents, 9 teachers and 11 practitioners or community leads. The four identified themes related to definitions of both mental well-being and mental health problems; a range of contributing factors related to identity resolution, parenting, poverty and social media; attribution of responsibility at different socio-ecological levels; and required awareness, supports and interventions at these levels.

J Child Health Care 2018 Nov 21:1367493518807312. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

1 Louis Dundas Centre for Children's Palliative Care, UCL Institute of Child Health, University College London, London, UK.

This study explored the feasibility of generating reliable information on the frequency, nature and management of breakthrough pain (BTP) in children with life-limiting conditions and life-threatening illnesses (LTIs) from narrative clinical records. In the absence of standardized ways for documenting BTP, we conducted a consensus exercise to develop a glossary of terms that could denote BTP in the records. Thirteen clinicians who contributed to the records reached consensus on 45 terms which could denote BTP, while emphasizing the importance of contextual information. Read More

Early life adversity, use of specialist care and unmet specialist care need among children.

J Child Health Care 2018 Nov 8:1367493518807830. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

4 School of Social Work, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA.

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are linked to increased utilization of health care among adults; however, the impact of ACEs on nonmental health specialist care has been largely overlooked. To address this, data from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health ( n = 89,357) were used to assess the health of children aged 0-17 living with a parent or guardian. Use of specialist care among children in the past 12 months was the outcome of interest and experiencing any one of nine ACEs was the independent variable of interest. Read More

User testing digital, multimedia information to inform children, adolescents and their parents about healthcare trials.

J Child Health Care 2018 Nov 1:1367493518807325. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

2 Department of Health Sciences, Hull York Medical School, University of York, York, UK.

Digital, multimedia information resources (MMIs) containing text, video, animation and pictures are a promising alternative to written participant information materials designed to inform children, adolescents and parents about healthcare trials, but little research has tested whether they are fit for purpose. This study employed a consecutive groups design and user testing questionnaire to assess whether participants were able to find and understand key information in multimedia resources. Two rounds of testing were completed. Read More

Ethical and practical challenges of conducting art-based research with children/young people in the public space of a children's outpatient department.

J Child Health Care 2018 Oct 30:1367493518807318. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

1 Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand.

This article examines the ethical and practical challenges of undertaking a study using art-based methods with children/young people. It is argued that an important component of qualitative research and research with children/young people is researcher reflexivity and flexibility, particularly when the anticipated and actual implemented methods of a study differ. We draw on a study with 175 children/young people aged 5-16 years in a children's outpatients department where 'draw-and-tell' and 'letter writing' were used to elicit children/young people's perceptions of the outpatient environment.

1 Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Children do not always receive adequate medical attention following a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), despite the necessity of this treatment. Adult mTBI knowledge may be one factor that affects if a child receives medical attention, but little is known about association between mTBI knowledge and help-seeking behaviour. Participants were 212 females and 58 males, including 84 parents, with a mean age of 35. Read More

Smokers with children with asthma: Parental perceptions about prototype intervention messages focused on reducing child tobacco exposure and use.

J Child Health Care 2018 Sep 9:1367493518798436. Epub 2018 Sep 9.

4 Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Boston University, MA, USA.

Formative research is needed to develop effective interventions that eliminate secondhand smoke exposure (SHSe) and prevent tobacco use (TU) among children with asthma. This online study included 300 parents who smoke and had a child with asthma (ages 10-14) and evaluated their perceptions about prototypes of parent-directed and child-directed feedback intervention messages focused on reducing child SHSe and future TU; correlates of perceptions were explored. Parents rated examples of parent-directed messages on motivation and helpfulness for eliminating SHSe and promoting conversations about TU and also rated child-directed messages on acceptability and helpfulness for promoting conversations about TU.

Toward developing consensus on family-centred care: An international descriptive study and discussion.

J Child Health Care 2018 Aug 27:1367493518795341. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

5 Faculty of Science, Charles Sturt University, Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Nurses around the world have described family-centred care (FCC) in various ways. With limited evidence regarding its implementation and with dissent among professionals regarding outcomes that are amorphously defined across age groups, systems and global settings, a group of children's nursing experts from around the world collaborated to seek clarification of the terms, deconstruct the elements in the model and describe empirically a consensus of values toward operationally defining FCC. A modified Delphi method was used drawing on expert opinions of participants from eight countries to develop a contemporary and internationally agreed list of 27 statements (descriptors of FCC) that could form the foundation for a measure for future empirical psychometric study of FCC across settings and countries.

Self-efficacy, infant feeding practices, and infant weight gain: An integrative review.

J Child Health Care 2018 Aug 2:1367493518788466. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

1 School of Nursing, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA.

It has been suggested that self-efficacy specific to parenting or feeding may influence the decisions parents make regarding infant feeding; however, a review of this topic has not been conducted. The purpose of this integrative review is to synthesize the literature regarding the potential role of self-efficacy in infant feeding practices or infant weight gain. A total of 40 articles were used to guide this review, which were classified into three categories examining an association with self-efficacy (1) breastfeeding; (2) infant feeding practices such as parental feeding style and dietary quality; and (3) infant weight gain.

2 Department of Neuroscience, Psychology, Drug Research and Child Health (NEUROFARBA), University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

The use of sedation before a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a common practice to overcome motion artifacts and anxiety in children. However, this technique has its drawbacks. We retrospectively compared the number of children undergoing a brain MRI scan with or without sedation before and after the introduction of an educational training protocol using a toy scanner (the Philips Kitten Scanner) and we investigated the effectiveness of this training in relation to children's age and gender.

Family- and child-centred care are philosophies of care used within paediatrics where the family and/or the child are central to healthcare delivery. This study explored the lived experience of hospitalized school-aged children admitted to a paediatric high dependency unit in New Zealand to gain insight into child-centred care from a child's perspective. An interpretive thematic approach was used where the child was asked to draw a picture of 'a person in the hospital' that was further explored through interviews. Read More

3 School of Nursing, University of Northern British Columbia, British Columbia, Canada.

Telehealth as a community-monitoring project within children's urology care is an innovative development. There is limited evidence of the inclusion of staff and parents in the early-stage development and later adoption of telehealth initiatives within routine urological nursing care or families' management of their child's bladder. The aim was to explore the experiences of key stakeholders (parents, clinicians, and technical experts) of the proof of concept telehealth intervention in terms of remote community-based urinalysis monitoring by parents of their child's urine.
