Background Our study aims to explore the experience of having a central venous access device (CVAD) from the perspective of the child and family and how movements within and outside of hospital environments influence this experience. Methods A mixed-methods study was conducted across Children’s Health Queensland (Australia), including inpatient an...
Article
Background: Paediatric peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) insertion using traditional landmark insertion technique can be difficult. Aim: To systematically review the evidence comparing landmark to ultrasound guidance for PIVC insertion in general paediatric patients. Study design: Cochrane methodology to systematically search for randomis...

Objective To develop and validate a difficult intravenous access risk assessment and escalation pathway, to increase first time intravenous insertion success in paediatrics. Methods Mixed methods underpinned by literature and co-production principles. Iterative development of the instrument was informed through semi-structured interviews and stake...
Article
Background: Central venous access devices (CVADs) are integral to cancer care provision. Despite the high prevalence of CVAD complications in children with cancer, preventative strategies are understudied. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess study feasibility, occlusive events, thrombolytic use, adverse events, and direct costs of cat...

Background Healthcare delivery is reliant on a functional central venous access device (CVAD), but the knowledge surrounding the burden of pediatric CVAD-associated harm is limited. Methods A prospective cohort study at a tertiary-referral pediatric hospital in Australia. Children <18 years undergoing insertion of a CVAD were screened from the ope...

Objectives The aim of this study was to examine patient perceptions regarding vascular access quality measurement.MethodsA web-based, cross-sectional survey was performed using a convenience sample of healthcare consumers with vascular access experience, recruited from September 2019 to June 2020. Survey respondents were asked to rate the perceived...
Article
The aim of this review was to determine the range of outcomes reported in long-term follow-up studies of children and adolescents with chronic pain. Using a scoping review methodology, a systematic search for studies reporting outcomes in children and adolescents with chronic pain over a ≥12 month period was undertaken. Studies were eligible for in...
Article
Objective: Early childhood is a high-risk period for exposure to traumatic medical events due to injury/illness. It is also one of the most important and vulnerable periods due to rapid development in neurobiological systems, attachment relationships, cognitive and linguistic capacities, and emotion regulation. The aim of this topical review is to...
Article
Objective: To examine the effectiveness of antimicrobial and antithrombogenic materials incorporated into peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) to prevent bloodstream infection, thrombosis, and catheter occlusion. Methods: Prospective cohort study involving 52 hospitals participating in the Michigan Hospital Medicine Safety Consortium....
Article
Chronic pain is common in young people aged 10–14 years. Interdisciplinary, clinician-delivered treatments, while effective, are often criticized for failing to be readily accessible. Mobile health applications (mHealth apps) have been proposed as effective treatment adjuncts that address these challenges, while meeting the needs of tech-savvy youn...
Article
Objectives The objectives of this study was to explore the accuracy of the Cornell Assessment for Pediatric Delirium (CAP-D), Pediatric Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (pCAM-ICU), and Preschool Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (psCAM-ICU) when implemented in routine care as delirium screening tools, an...
Article

Background: Data regarding vascular access device use and outcomes are limited. In part, this gap reflects the absence of guidance on what variables should be collected to assess patient outcomes. We sought to derive international consensus on a vascular access minimum dataset. Methods: A modified Delphi study with three rounds (two electronic s...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: To critically review the evidence for the selection and insertion of pediatric vascular access devices (VADs). Data sources: Data were sourced from the US National Library of Medicine, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health, the Cochrane Library databases, Embase, and international clinical trial databases. Study selection: C...
Article
Background: Peripheral venous cannulation is considered a routine procedure, yet 50% of first attempt insertions fail, necessitating repeat insertion attempts. Identification of children with difficult intravenous access (DIVA) can help promote prompt escalation to an appropriately skilled clinician. Objective: To describe current international...
Article
Persistent pain is a global health care issue affecting more than 30% of children and young people. mHealth applications delivered using smartphones, are an innovative method to engage children in pain self-management. This article outlines the evidence concerning the development, implementation, and evaluation of mHealth apps for these children in...

Introduction: It has been reported that post-hospitalisation behaviour change (PHBC) occurs in over 50% of children undergoing a general anaesthetic and manifests as behaviours such as sleep and eating disorders, defiance of authority, nightmares, enuresis and temper tantrums. The effect is usually short-lived (2-4 weeks); however, in 5-10% of chi...
Article
Delirium is a common and serious neuropsychiatric complication in critically ill patients of all ages. In the context of critical illness, delirium may emerge as a result of a cascade of underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms and signals organ failure of the brain. Awareness of the clinical importance of delirium in adults is growing as emerging re...
