Contraceptive care for Canadian youth.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Jul 12;23(4):271-277. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Adolescent Health Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

Sexual and reproductive health is an important component of comprehensive health care for youth. This statement provides guidance for selecting and prescribing contraceptives for youth, including commonly prescribed hormonal contraceptives-the pill, patch, ring and injectable progestin-and long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). LARCs, including subdermal implants (which are not available in Canada) and intrauterine contraceptives (IUCs), are substantially more effective during typical use than hormonal contraceptives.

Potential strategies to improve childhood immunization rates in Canada.

Authors:
Joan L Robinson

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Aug 18;23(5):353-356. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Infectious Diseases and Immunization Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

Immunization rates in Canada are suboptimal. Strategies such as making immunization mandatory for child care or school entry and financial incentives are used in other countries. Additional strategies that could work in the Canadian context include requiring accurate immunization records at school entry, implementing immunization registries at the provincial/territorial level, educating parents and school-aged children about vaccine-preventable diseases and making it more convenient for parents to ensure their children are fully immunized.

Imaging the term neonatal brain.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Aug 18;23(5):322-328. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Fetus and Newborn Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

Brain imaging is important for the diagnosis and management of sick term neonates. Although ultrasound and computed tomography may provide some information, magnetic resonance imaging is now the brain imaging modality of choice because it is the most sensitive technique for detecting and quantifying brain abnormalities and does not expose infants to radiation. This statement describes the principles, roles and limitations of these three imaging modalities and makes recommendations for appropriate use in term neonates. Read More

Hypothermia for newborns with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Jul 12;23(4):285-291. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Fetus and Newborn Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

Therapeutic hypothermia is a standard of care for infants ≥36 weeks gestational age (GA) with moderate-to-severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. Because some studies included infants born at 35 weeks GA, hypothermia should be considered if they meet other criteria. Cooling for infants <35 weeks GA is not recommended. Read More

Medical assistance in dying: A paediatric perspective.

Authors:
Dawn Davies

Paediatr Child Health 2018 May 12;23(2):125-130. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Bioethics Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

The Supreme Court decision in (2015) has led to changes to the Canadian , such that physician-assisted death is now a legal option for consenting adult patients who have a 'grievous and irremediable medical condition' that causes 'enduring' and 'intolerable' suffering. In June 2016, Bill C-14 was enacted, allowing medical assistance in dying (MAID) for an eligible adult whose death is 'reasonably foreseeable'. An independent report on the status of 'mature minors' (who are currently excluded under federal legislation), with focus on their potential eligibility for MAID, was required by the 2016 Act and is expected to be presented to Parliament by December 2018.

Medical decision-making in paediatrics: Infancy to adolescence.

Authors:
Kevin W Coughlin

Paediatr Child Health 2018 May 12;23(2):138-146. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Canadian Paediatric Society, Bioethics Committee, Ottawa, Ontario.

Medical decision-making in the paediatric population is complicated by the wide variation in physical and psychological development that occurs as children progress from infancy to adolescence. Parents and legal guardians are the de facto decision-makers in early infancy, but thereafter, the roles of parents/legal guardians and paediatric patients become ever more complex. Health care providers (HCPs), while not decision-makers per se, have a significant role in medical decision-making throughout childhood. Read More

Cost savings of implementing the SickKids Paediatric Orthopaedic Pathway for proximal humerus fractures in Ontario, Canada.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Sep 1;23(6):e109-e116. Epub 2018 Mar 1.

Institute of Health Policy Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario.

Background: The SickKids Paediatric Orthopaedic Pathway (SKPOP) for proximal humerus fractures may safely reduce the number of radiographs and follow-up assessments for children with these injuries. The study objective was to examine potential cost-savings of the SKPOP from the perspective of the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MOHLTC).

Methods: Two sets of resource profiles, based on direct health care costs were created for a cohort of patients treated at our institution: the first based on actual follow-up assessment values, and the other based on follow-up assessments according to the SKPOP. Read More

A retrospective analysis of clinical characteristics of childhood narcolepsy.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Sep 5;23(6):e95-e101. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

Division of Respiratory Medicine, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario.

Aim: Narcolepsy, encompassing excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), cataplexy, sleep paralysis and hypnogogic hallucinations, was previously considered rare in childhood. Recently, cases of childhood narcolepsy have increased significantly and the reasons for this may include the increasing awareness of narcolepsy as well as the H1N1 vaccination. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical characteristics of childhood narcolepsy, specifically focusing on cataplexy subtypes that may facilitate early recognition of narcolepsy. Read More

Adolescent decision-making in Canadian medical contexts: Integrating neuroscience and consent frameworks.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Sep 7;23(6):374-376. Epub 2018 Apr 7.

Bioethics Department, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario.

The primary objective of this commentary is to integrate current neuroscientific research on brain development during adolescence, with existing consent frameworks that do not designate a minimum age for eligibility to consent to, or refuse medical treatment. To reach this objective, the three consent frameworks used in health care settings are outlined: age-based framework; mature minor framework and capacity-based framework. This commentary draws on the Canadian health care system specifically to consider consent frameworks that grant young people with decision-making capacity. Read More

Screening for kidney disease in Indigenous Canadian children: The FINISHED screen, triage and treat program.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Nov 14;23(7):e134-e142. Epub 2018 Apr 14.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Background: Indigenous populations are disproportionately affected by kidney failure at younger ages than other ethnic groups in Canada. As symptoms do not occur until disease is advanced, early kidney disease risk is often unrecognized.

Objectives: We sought to evaluate the yield of community-based screening for early risk factors for kidney disease in youth from rural Indigenous communities in Canada. Read More

Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Ontario.

Objective: The hidden curriculum is a set of influences that function at the level of organizational structure and culture which fall outside the formal curriculum, and are often unarticulated or unexplored. Learning associated with the hidden curriculum may have negative consequences on trainee educational development. The study goal was to examine how aspects of the hidden curriculum were enacted during ward rounds on a tertiary care general paediatrics clinical teaching unit (CTU). Read More

Redesign of the autism spectrum screening and diagnostic process for children aged 12 to 36 months.

Paediatr Child Health 2018 Aug 22;23(5):308-313. Epub 2018 Jan 22.

Department of Paediatrics, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Alberta Children's Hospital, Calgary, Alberta.

Diagnosing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is challenging, resource-intense and time-consuming due to clinical and etiologic heterogeneity. With the rapid increase in prevalence of ASD, higher demand for diagnostic assessment often means long waitlists for families, and limited access to specialized intervention and support. In 2013, the Alberta Children's Hospital-Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnostic Clinic (ACH-ASDC) experienced a significant waitlist in the 12 to 36 months' population. Read More
