Questions related to Adolescent Health
What is your role as a researcher in this crisis Corona Corvide 19? Your role could be, educating the community around you, the family and surrounding areas, scientific research, scientific studies, vaccine tests, treatment testing, preparing therapeutic chemicals, psychological studies, and social behavior studies.
Too much focus on pandemic containment has sidelined other dimensions of health like reproductive/sexual health, adolescent health, mental health, geriatric health etc. Are we heading on right path? What key strategies need to employed to address such important but neglected health issues during these testing times?
Do you have some recommendation for this this type of survey?
Some standard form of survey?
I am looking for some short form, that can be easily done by children.
I am analyzing a dataset. There I have a group of participants whose age range is 10-17 years. I have their gender, date of birth, height and weight. I want to measure their BMI for age, z-score and percentile using WHO guidelines. WHO provides "Anthro Survey Analyser" to calculate these but in the default format, it can calculate the BMI for the age of under 5 years children (0-60 months) only (both in online anthro tool and offline anthro software).
So, how can I calculate the BMI for age, z score, and percentile of 10-17 years age group children using WHO Anthro Software or Online Survey Analyzer?
Nowadays there is much going on about LGBT+. Sensibility concerning gender and sexual orientation are on the ride. I would like to ask you how you deal with gender while collecting data through online questionnaire.
Are you asking biological gender at birth?
Are you giving as options male/female/other/not declare?
Are you giving as options male/female/not binary?
Can anyone suggest a better way?
And what about methodology? Are you including in the analysis? I recently collected a sample of around 5000 cases for a researc about mental health. Only about 20 claimed themselves as "else". How would you deal with it?
Excluding them from your analysis?
Including even if the sample is definitely not consistent enough?
Thanks in advance. Any input is very much welcome!
I need a clue on which area of Adolescent health problem shall I focus for the PhD concept note. Thank you in advance for your help and professional input in advance.
I would like to use the knowledge, beliefs and practice questionnaire from the following article in my study:
Anderson KD, Chad KE, Spink KS. Osteoporosis knowledge, beliefs, and practices among adolescent females. J Adolesc Health. 2005 Apr;36(4):305-12.
I have emailed the authors to ask for permission but no one is replying my email. What should I do to obtain the permission to use this questionnaire?
We are interested in comparing energetic consumption during performing different style of dances.
Bisphenol A (BPA), as well as some other bisphenols, are hormone disrupting chemicals potentially present in conventional receipts that you and I are handling every day. Recentrly we have made a study in Denmark ("Bisphenol A and its structural analogues in household waste paper", Pivnenko et. al., 2015) and showed that BPA, as well as bisphenol S (BPS), are present in concentrations up to 1.7% in conventional receipts. Are you aware of BPA (or BPS) present in receipts in your country? Could you refer to studies (published or unpublished) quantifying them? Please share your information openly or in a private message. Any help is appreciated.
Does anyone have experience or know of tasks that adolescents (10 to 16) could do on tablets at home during pre-determined times to assess cognitive functioning (memory, planning, attention, etc.)? I prefer very brief <10 minutes or even less. I am interesting in assessing day-to-day fluctuations in cognitive performance that complements traditional lab-based assessments.
I could really use some adolescent-specific information on selective mutism. I am interested in therapy approaches, manuals, anecdotes, insights, whatever you've got.
We treat a young boy (13 year old) with severe hypeparatiroidism (PTH 1700) with paricalcitol 6 ug/week. In an adult we would organize parathyroidectomy. We have some doubt about its utility and safety in adolescent boys.

Are there some music interventions to help teens who are affected by bullying?
P.S. It would be best to give me some surveys on this topic.

I am looking for research articles ( population study, Cross-sectional) on eating/dietary habits of adolescents (15-18 years old). And my second question: Can anyone suggest a good standarised questionnaire on dietary habits that would be suitable to use with adolescents? I would be very grateful for Your help.

I'm survey methodologist for the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) and I'm working on a research project on obtaining parental permission for our teen interview. As part of that project I'm trying to find surveys that interview teens, preferably on the phone, and preferably from RDD (random digit dial) samples.
They can be large-scale or small-scale. They can be educational or health surveys, polls, etc. (topic isn't important).
Study qualities I'm seeking:
1) Interview teens/adolescents of any age under 18
2) Conducted by phone (at least partly). All things considered, surveys in other modes (e.g., web-based or paper-and-pencil) may be helpful, so don't hesitate to suggest. But since our survey is a phone survey (RDD), that's the design I'm most interested in.
3) Require parent permission before talking to the teen.
The rates I'm looking for:
1) Parental permission rate
2) Teen response rate or interview completion rate given parental consent
I don't expect you'll send me these rates (unless you have them handy), but just the names of the surveys would be great.
I did a quick search in the J. of Adol. Res. and J. of Adol., but didn't see any review articles on this topic.
I'm happy to share our research progress in return as it develops, but you can learn more about CHIS in the mean time here.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
I am planning to collect hair samples from patients for measurement of cortisol (up to a pencil thickness in diameter cut as close to the root as possible) but I am not sure how difficult it will be to get a young person to agree to this. Anyone who can comment on their experiences with hair sample collection will be much appreciated.
I am interested in assessing OHQoL in adolescents undergoing orthodontic therapy (teeth braces). Could you suggest any suitable specific instrument?
I’m researching treatment options for children in foster care who are struggling with drug addiction. I read about Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC), Family therapy, multisystem therapy and functional family therapy. I was wondering if anyone knows of Interventions, advice or recommendations for most effective treatments. I’m really looking to find out what you’d consider to be the most efficient method.
What conceptual framework tackles the issue of risky sexual behaviour and contraceptive use among unmarried youth? That is also useful in terms of program and policy formation.
I'm looking for the relations between Massive alcohol consumption or Binge Drinking and bone mineral density in young adults or students.
Jackie Zhuang and I presented this paper at the CDC Health conference in Atlanta 2 years ago. Someone viewing our poster described it as very precious data as we were able to get access to young teens in a middle school. The MSU IRB agreed to parental refusal as consent. If the parents did not send our form of refusal back to school, their child was included in the study. We got very good compliance with the study. Only 3 parents returned the refusal form.
We are currently planing a study about the post-therapeutic stability of therapeutic change effects.
Looking for an instrument (brief) to measure critical health literacy among high school students. Not interested in basic/functional health literacy, such as "do you understand the instructions on your medication." Instead, seeking a way to measure communicative and critical health literacy. WHO definition of interest: "Health literacy represents the cognitive and social skills which determine the motivation and ability of individuals to gain access to, understand and use information in ways which promote and maintain good health" (Nutbeam, 1998).
I've seen some qualitative work on this, and I'm in the process of tracking down quantitative work as well. I've seen reasons cited like privacy (i.e., "I don't want him talking to strangers"), age and appropriateness of topics (i.e,. "I don't want her talking to a stranger about personal topics"). From the focus groups I've observed, I have a feeling that dad's of daughters are the group most likely to refuse participation. Is there any research to support that?
Any key papers on surveying teens and minors that I should be looking at? Any surveys using particularly innovative methods for increasing parent consent? I know the general survey methods literature well, but I'm wondering if there are good papers that might be hiding out there in other fields (or that passed under my radar). The context is phone, mail, and face-to-face surveys specifically, not school-based or doctor-based studies, or surveys where kids can opt themselves in without parent consent.
Thanks in advance for anything you have to share.
I want to investigate the student nurses' attitudes to child and adolescent mental health nursing or aged care mental health nursing. Is anyone could tell me which instrument tool I can use.
