Pediatric Experiences Of Ptsd Related To Natural Disasters, Victoria J. Denen, Julianna H. Ruckersfeldt, Wyatt S. Kyser

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

Between 1994 and 2013, the International Disaster Database recorded 6,873 natural disasters worldwide, which claimed 1.35 million lives or almost 68,000 lives on average each year. In addition, an average of 218 million people were affected by natural disasters per year during this 20-year period (Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters, 2015). All disasters have the potential to affect psychological health (U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, 2016) and children are especially vulnerable. The purpose of this review of literature was to answer the question, “How do children and adolescents who have survived a form ...


The Effect Of Kinship Foster Care Compared To Non-Kinship Foster Care On Resiliency, Heidi M. Vizino, Alyssa B. Bergthold 2018 Cedarville University

The Effect Of Kinship Foster Care Compared To Non-Kinship Foster Care On Resiliency, Heidi M. Vizino, Alyssa B. Bergthold

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

An estimated 40% to 60% of children in foster care have clinically significant emotional or behavioral problems (US Public Health Service, 2000). Children in foster care experience a range of complex psychosocial issues due to a loss of stability in a foundational biological family unit. Research shows that placement type may have an impact on a child’s socioemotional resiliency and level of access to needed mental health services (Lynch, 2011; Smithgall, Yang, & Weiner 2013; Winokur, 2014). The purpose of this literature review was to evaluate the effect of foster home placement type, specifically kinship foster care compared to non-kinship foster care ...

Exploring Reasons For Opting Out Of Hpv Vaccination Among Patients And Health Care Providers, megan masters 2018 DePaul University

Exploring Reasons For Opting Out Of Hpv Vaccination Among Patients And Health Care Providers, Megan Masters

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Background: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a virus that can infect both males and females, potentially causing genital warts, vaginal, cervical, anal, and vulvar cancers. According to CDC guidelines, the HPV vaccine can be given to boys and girls age 9 to 26 (CDC, 2017). Although cases of HPV have dropped as the number of HPV vaccinations rise, vaccine rates are still far below the Health People 2020 target of 80% coverage. With current rates of 49.5% coverage in females, and 37.5% in males through 2017, it is evident that current routes of vaccine education are not adequate (CDC ...

Use Of Beneficial Complementary And Alternative Medicine For Children With Autism And Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (Adhd), Jaskirin Mand

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Background: In disorders such as autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), parents are more likely to choose unreported complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies such as vitamin therapy, physical therapy, music therapy and yoga. CAM treatments are starting to become more popular in the pediatric population. However, it’s not a discussion that most parents have with their doctor.

Objective: This study is an integrative literature review looking at the effectiveness of CAM therapies on autism and ADHD. The therapies that are focused on are music therapy for autism and physical therapy and elimination diets in children with ADHD ...

Exploring The Need Of Hpv Education Programs In Korean American Communities, Emilia Mondragón, Young-Me Lee

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Aim: 1) To identify cultural influences and other barriers affecting HPV vaccination decisions, 2) To identify educational methods that can deliver HPV related information to Korean American (KA) parents effectively

Background: Given significant concerns about HPV infection, lower immunization rates, and higher cervical cancer risks facing Korean Americans, it is imperative to better understand the barriers to vaccination. Currently, there is no HPV-focused education program that considers the linguistic and cultural barriers of the KA community. Additionally, there is a lack of effective educational content and methods available to reach KA parents.

Methods: An exploratory, qualitative design was conducted. Content ...

Meta-Analysis Of The Effects Of Exercise Interventions On Obese Adolescents, Brandy E. Strahan Phd, Rn, Hyochol Ahn Phd, Ms-Ece, Ms-Cts, Aprn, Anp-Bc, Jonathan Shuster M.Sc., Ph.D.

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

A meta-analysis of 10 randomized control studies published in 2003-2013 was conducted to provide a summary of the effects of exercise interventions on obese adolescents. Outcomes of the reviewed trials included body mass index, weight, glucose, and triglycerides. Data were combined using an inverse variance weighted random effects model. The effect size estimate for BMI was 1.354 kg/m2 (p < 0.001, SE 0.321), indicating that the BMI of individuals in treatment groups improved, as compared to control groups. A statistically significant reduction in weight was greater in the intervention groups than the control groups by 3.815 kg (p = 0.001, SE 1.101). The findings of this meta-analysis show that exercise interventions may improve control of weight and BMI and in turn be a factor in decreasing obesity.

Using Social Narratives To Improve The Healthcare Experiences Of Children Diagnosed With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Margaret Spindel 2017 James Madison University

Using Social Narratives To Improve The Healthcare Experiences Of Children Diagnosed With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Margaret Spindel

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often experience significant emotional stress when they visit a healthcare provider. The focus of this research project was to explore the use of social narratives to help reduce stress associated with this environment. Social narratives are short stories designed to walk a child through a potential situation that they will encounter, that they may not be familiar with, or that they are not currently handling properly. As part of an initial literature review, evidence for the need for additional intervention in the healthcare setting for children with ASD was established. Continuing literature review then ...


The Lived Experiences Of Parents With Chronic Sorrow Who Are Caring For Children With A Chronic Medical Condition, Lori L. Batchelor 2017 University of Texas at Tyler

The Lived Experiences Of Parents With Chronic Sorrow Who Are Caring For Children With A Chronic Medical Condition, Lori L. Batchelor

Nursing Theses and Dissertations

Caring for the millions of children living with a chronic medical condition creates multiple parental burdens. Parents whose children have a diagnosis of a chronic medical condition may experience an ongoing, unresolved grief or sadness phenomenon known as chronic sorrow. This may impact parental ability to manage their child’s health care needs and may lead to negative health outcomes for the parent caregiver, affected child, and the family.

The aim of this interpretive phenomenological study was to understand the nature and meaning of the lived experiences of parents with chronic sorrow who are caring for a child with a ...


The Relationship Between Bmi & Mandated Physical Education Requirements Of Elementary Schools, Kathryn Fairlamb 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Relationship Between Bmi & Mandated Physical Education Requirements Of Elementary Schools, Kathryn Fairlamb

The Eleanor Mann School of Nursing Undergraduate Honors Theses

The physical activity policies of elementary schools in Arkansas and correlations between physical activity requirements and body mass index have been studied. Examination of the policies at the individual school, district, or state level were noted. The statewide BMI database was consulted.
