Article
Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood with nearly 7 million children affected in the United States. Nonadherence to controller medication is a substantial issue that results in higher pediatric asthma disease morbidity. The Common Sense Model of Self-Regulation is a useful theoretical framework to understand chronic disease...
Article
Objective: The purpose of this article is to synthesize the current literature on parent and child asthma illness representations and their consequent impact on parent–child asthma shared management. Data sources: This systematic review was conducted in concordance with the PRISMA statement. An electronic search of five computerized databases (Pub...
Article
Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. For children with persistent asthma, asthma control is largely related to controller medication adherence. With increasing calls for children to be involved in their own asthma management, there is a gap in our knowledge about the executive functioning of children with asthma. Objecti...
Article
This study aimed to design and test an Asthma Essentials Kit to support parent-child shared asthma management. Fourteen children (7-11 years) with asthma and their parents participated in this study. Development of the Asthma Essentials Kit involved a generative phase, focused on understanding and designing to meet user needs, and an evaluative pha...
Article
Introduction: The purpose of this study was to describe the holistic impacts of COVID-19 on pediatric advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). Method: A cross-sectional descriptive design was used to survey a convenience sample APRNs affiliated with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. An investigator-developed instrument...

Adolescent mental health is a growing public health issue, with 30% of teens reporting increased stress and 20% of adolescents suffering from depression. Given the scarcity and lack of scalability of mental health services available, the use of self-administered, evidence-based technologies to support adolescent mental health is both timely and imp...
Article
Introduction: This study examines the relationships among recent adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), somatic symptoms, and anxiety/depression symptoms during adolescence and whether anxiety/depression symptoms mediate the relationship between ACEs and somatic symptoms. Methods: Longitudinal prospective data from the Longitudinal Studies of Chi...

Background: The school-age years, approximately ages seven through eleven, represent a natural transition when children begin assuming some responsibility for their asthma management. Previously, we designed a theoretically derived, tailored parent-child shared asthma management mHealth application (app) prototype, Improving Asthma Care Together (I...

Introduction Asthma is an incurable, lifelong condition that places children at increased risk for exacerbation, hospitalization and school absences. Most pediatric asthma interventions target parents alone and are overly prescriptive. Improving Asthma Care Together (IMPACT) is a novel shared management system comprised of a mobile health (mHealth)...

Background: Limited data suggest air pollution exposures may contribute to pediatric high blood pressure (HBP), a known predictor of adult cardiovascular diseases. Methods: We investigated this association in the Conditions Affecting Neurocognitive Development and Learning in Early Childhood (CANDLE) study, a sociodemographically diverse pregnan...
Article
To address the unprecedented levels of stress among adolescents in the United States, our team planned a home study to pilot a self-administered virtual reality (VR) environment for stress reduction. The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a swift pivot to a “no contact” protocol. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe this protocol, including pa...
Article
Toddler immunization completion rates vary across populations in the United States, and this variation may be contributing to the national rise in vaccine preventable diseases. Yet existing theoretical scholarship for improving toddler immunization uptake is largely focused on the individual level, neglecting the multiple system‐level environments...

Study objectives: To describe the feasibility, acceptability and preliminary efficacy of a novel Sleep Intervention for Kids and Parents (SKIP). Parent and child primary sleep outcomes were total sleep time (TST), wake after sleep onset (WASO), sleep efficiency (SE), and bedtime range. Methods: Children aged 6-11 years with asthma and one parent...

The focus on families and application to health sets Families, Systems, & Health apart from other sister journals. Family science is a thriving field of study experiencing rapid advances in the discovery, verification, and application of knowledge about families (Burr, Day, & Bahr, 1993; Doherty, Boss, LaRossa, Schumm, & Steinmetz, 1993; National C...

Article
Background: The intrauterine environment may influence offspring blood pressure, with effects possibly extending into adulthood. The associations between prenatal nutrition and offspring blood pressure, alone or in combination with other sociodemographic or behavioral factors, are unclear. Objective: We investigated the associations of maternal...
Article
Introduction. The school-age years represent a critical time for children to begin assuming shared asthma management responsibility. This study aimed to describe parent- and child-reported asthma responsibility, examine agreement and disagreement, and explore family functioning as a predictor of (dis)agreement. Methods. Twenty children (ages 6 to...

Introduction Training on the recognition and reporting of child maltreatment is a critical component of any health professional education program. Unfortunately, it is nationally recognized that health care professional training on recognition and reporting suspected child maltreatment is insufficient. Similarly, recent attention has been given to...

Introduction Few interprofessional (IP) learning opportunities are designed specifically for advanced health learners who are early in their training yet have already had some clinical experience. This group of learners requires activities that are didactic based but extend beyond the introductory IP curricula typically geared towards prelicensure...
Article
This study examined the relationship between asthma illness representations and reported controller medication adherence of school-aged children (6–11 years) with persistent asthma and their parents. Thirty-four parent–child dyads independently reported on asthma controller medication adherence and asthma illness representations. Hierarchical regre...

Children 6-to-11 years of age, with (n = 70) and without (n = 46) JIA, and their parent participated. Parents completed questionnaires on sleep habits and behavior problems. Compared to control children, JIA child...

Project
Virtual reality presents a potentially scalable and accessible technology to improve mental health in teens. The goal of this project is to transfer mindfulness-based intervention components into interactive, virtual reality experiences through co-design with teens. We hope that making evidence-based components interactive, we will amplify their potential effect to improve mood and reduce stress.
Project
Improving Asthma Care Together (IMPACT) is a novel health application that pairs the parent and child together as a team to manage the child's asthma. For the proposed study, we aim to refine and test IMPACT with 7-11-year-old children with persistent asthma and their parents. The initial feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of IMPACT will be tested in a pilot randomized controlled trial comparing IMPACT to an enhanced usual care control with a sample of 40 children with persistent asthma and their parents. Parent and child asthma self-efficacy, shared management (asthma responsibility) and quality of life will be measured in both study groups before and after the intervention.
