Authors: Reimherr FW, Roesler M, Marchant BK, Gift TE, Retz W, Philipp-Wiegmann F, Reimherr ML Abstract OBJECTIVE: Research supports the importance of emotional symptoms in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which are not reflected in the DSM-5 or ICD-10 criteria. The Wender-Reimherr Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Scale (WRAADDS) assesses these symptoms, plus inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. This scale allowed us to divide adult ADHD into 2 subtypes in a 2015 publication: ADHD inattentive presentation and ADHD emotional dysregulation presentation. The present study refines th...

Current Canadian guidelines for adolescent obstetrical care recommend sexually transmitted infection (STI) screening at entry to care and in the third trimester. Our study assessed the rate of new and recurrent Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhea (NG) infections in the third trimester at an adolescent obstetrics clinic. We hypothesized that targeted repeat screening may be appropriate in this adolescent population.

Adolescent girls presenting to the ED with complaints of abdominal pain require evaluation regarding their risk of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted infection (STI). We sought to assess the rate of counselling regarding safer sex options, including contraception, STI screening, or pregnancy support among girls who presented to the ED with abdominal pain and reported current sexual activity without use of contraception.

Efforts are underway to improve access to birth control with over-the-counter (OTC) contraception. Improved access is particularly important for young people. It would be ideal to increase access to effective contraception with over-the-counter contraception and concomitantly increase sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention; however, dual protection within this context is not well-explored.

Nearly half of adolescents have been sexually active by age 18, and teens represent the highest sexually transmitted infections (STI) rate in the U.S. Adolescents do not obtain routine care so discussing contraception at each visit is imperative. Previous studies focused on missed opportunities for adult or pregnant women, with little attention to adolescent primary care. Our study objectives were to determine the frequency of visits before contraception was discussed/initiated, and to assess factors affecting contraceptive care.

Provision of reproductive health preventive services to adolescents is critical given their high rates of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies. Pediatricians are well-positioned to provide these services, but often face barriers. Practice facilitation (PF) is an evidence-based approach to improve primary care outcomes through a relationship between an external facilitator and a primary care practice. The aim of this study was to use PF to build quality improvement (QI) capacity within community pediatric practices to improve adherence to national guidelines for adolescent reproductive health preventive services.

Characterizing the lived experiences of these youth can provide insight to guide clinicians ’ best practices and refine evidence-based family and school-centered sexual education.

The most effective treatment in ADHD is drug treatment. Stimulant and nonstimulant drug treatments are preferentially used. Atomoxetine is one of the nonstimulant treatments. Although sexual side effects of atomoxetine in adults are reported, there is limited knowledge about sexual side effects in children and adolescents. In this case report, we aimed to describe an adolescen...
