[Iodine Deficiency Disorders: Current State of the Problem in the Bryansk Region].

Probl Endokrinol (Mosk) 2021 Aug 3;67(4):84-93. Epub 2021 Aug 3.

Department of Health of the Bryansk Region.

Background: The Bryansk region is one of the regions of the Russian Federation most affected by the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on April 26, 1986.In the conditions of a chronic uncompensated deficiency of iodine in the diet in the first months after the accident, an active seizure of radioactive iodine by the thyroid tissue took place, which inevitably resulted in an increase in thyroid diseases from the population in the future. The article presents the results of a control and epidemiological study carried out in May 2021 by specialists of the National Medical Research Center of Endocrinology of the Ministry of Health of Russia, aimed at assessing the current state of iodine provision in the population of the Bryansk region.

J Pediatr Nurs 2021 Aug 12;60:288-292. Epub 2021 Aug 12.

Got Transition/The National Alliance to Advance Adolescent Health, 5335 Wisconsin Ave., NW, Suite 440, Washington, DC 20015, United States of America.

Background: Children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), particularly those with medical complexity, account for a large proportion of pediatric inpatients and are increasingly surviving to adulthood. However, few studies have evaluated the inpatient care of this population after transition to adult hospitals. This paper describes a Med-Peds Hospitalist service providing inpatient consultation for young adults with childhood conditions and offers a window into issues likely to be faced by young adults with IDD as they face increased admissions to adult hospitals.

Background: People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (PWIDD) are contracting and dying of COVID-19 at significantly greater rates than nondisabled people and people with other disabilities. Despite the increased risk of COVID-19 for the IDD community, there has been less attention drawn to the impact of the pandemic on people with IDD, especially beyond their health and safety. Yet, PWIDD also face unique challenges as a result of the pandemic compared to other populations. Read More

Families Requesting Advocates for Children With Disabilities: The Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of Special Education Advocacy.

Intellect Dev Disabil 2020 04;58(2):158-169

Samantha E. Goldman, Assumption College; Meghan M. Burke, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign; and Ellen G. Casale, Morgan A. Frazier, and Robert M. Hodapp, Vanderbilt University.

Because parents face barriers in advocating for their children within the special education system, some families request help from a special education advocate. In this study, we evaluated the perceptions of caregivers who requested advocacy support to understand why, for whom, when, and where the advocacy services were needed; how the advocate helped; and what the outcomes of the advocacy process were and which variables related to better outcomes. We conducted structured interviews with 36 families who had requested help and connected with an advocate over a 3-year period. Read More

Preventing and Treating Diabetes in Canadian Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Can J Diabetes 2020 Mar 7;44(2):205-210. Epub 2019 Jun 7.

Azrieli Adult Neurodevelopmental Centre, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Despite emerging evidence that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have a high prevalence of diabetes, Canada does not have a strategy to address diabetes in this population. The aim of this review was to review effective health policies and practices to improve diabetes prevention and management developed by other jurisdictions in response to the high prevalence of diabetes among individuals with IDD. To do so, a narrative literature review was conducted based on 18 studies, in addition to 3 examples of resources, 2 systematic reviews, the Canadian diabetes guidelines, the UK diabetes guidelines and Kachika's "NHS RightCare Pathway" report.

Iodine Status in Schoolchildren and Pregnant Women of Lazio, a Central Region of Italy.

Nutrients 2019 Jul 18;11(7). Epub 2019 Jul 18.

Department of Surgical Sciences, "Sapienza" University of Rome, 00161 Rome, Italy.

The inhabitants of Lazio, similarly to those of other Italian regions, have been historically exposed to the detrimental effects of an inadequate intake of iodine. The latter is a micronutrient essential for the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones (TH). Iodine deficiency is responsible for a number of adverse effects on human health known as iodine deficiency disorders (IDD), the most common of which worldwide are goiter and hypothyroidism.

Direct Support Professionals' Perspectives on Ambulatory Health Care Processes and Quality.

Intellect Dev Disabil 2019 06;57(3):188-197

Carl V. Tyler, Developmental Disabilities-Practice-Based Research Network, Case Western Reserve University, Lakewood, OH; Michael D. Wells, Developmental Disabilities-Practice-Based Research Network, Lakewood, OH; Developmental Disabilities-Practice-Based Research Network, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH.

Direct support professionals (DSPs) frequently accompany persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities (IDD) to their health care appointments and could offer valuable insights into potential target areas for health-care improvement. DSPs completed surveys assessing healthcare processes and quality immediately following 118 ambulatory health care encounters involving their patients with IDD. Although DSPs generally judged the quality of health care as good (44%) or excellent (52%), they also observed that physicians directed questions to the DSP that the patient could have answered in 22% of encounters, and noted that physicians failed to ask critical psychosocial information in 24% of encounters.

J Appl Res Intellect Disabil 2019 May 21;32(3):600-609. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh, UK.

Background: Self-management of health includes people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) playing a key role in health management in collaborating with healthcare professionals.
