- To determine if there is a gap between behavioral symptoms and previously recognized mental health conditions in youth victims of peer assault injuries and to describe gender differences in psychological symptoms.
- The aim of this study was to determine the specific aspects of early parenting in psychosocially at-risk families most strongly related to children’s social-emotional adaptation to school.
- Since the initial conceptualization of the medical home in the 1960s and 70s in pediatrics,1 its definition and principles have evolved. The addition of clinicians in family medicine and internal medicine, policymakers, payer groups, and consumer groups to medical home study and implementation has given tremendous positive momentum to the movement to create patient- and family-centered medical homes for children, adolescents and adults. While there is a great deal of similarity between medical home concepts and models for the care of adults and children, some principles should be emphasized in child and adolescent health, and a few health concepts are unique.
- It has been a genuine pleasure to serve as the president of the Academic Pediatric Association (APA). The APA plays a critical leadership role in setting the agendas that shape clinical care, education, research, and advocacy on behalf of kids and families. Today, I wanted to reflect on leadership lessons I have learned and relate them to the challenges we face to improve the health and well-being of children and families. I refer to these challenges as “the wisdom,” “the will,” and “the wallet.”
