32. Adolescents With Chronic Illnesses: Discovering Eating Disorder Susceptibility and their Health Risks
Medical advances have improved survival rates and treatment outcomes for children and adolescents, with some leading to disease cure while others resulted in chronic conditions. Those, with chronic health conditions, particularly during adolescence might be at risk for emotional and psychological problems, contributing by their developments. During a critical period for body image concerns, they may be at risk of developing unhealthy eating behaviors and eating disorders. Research had shown that those with chronic illnesses were more prone to these issues compared to their healthier peers. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

34. Successful Integration of Digital Psychosocial Screening into Paediatric Hospital Systems for Adolescents and Young Adults
Adolescents and Young Adults (AYA) living with chronic conditions are recognised to have a higher incidence of psychosocial morbidities. HEEADSSS psychosocial interview has been an accepted approach to screening, with recognition that indirect methods yield higher rates of disclosure than face to face ascertainment. The Sydney Children ’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) integrated a digital screening system into its electronic medical record (EMR) available to all staff in 2019 to support standardised psychosocial assessment in all AYA encounters, for example in emergency departments and adolescent wards.

35. Preferences and Experiences of Parents/Guardians of Adolescents and Young Adults With Epilepsy and Intellectual Disability on Decision-Making Surrounding Contraception
To explore the preferences of parents/guardians of adolescents and young adults (AYA) of childbearing potential with co-occurring epilepsy and intellectual disability (ID) regarding decision making surrounding contraception/birth control. We explore and better understand the information they find important to receive from physicians, factors that affect their contraceptive decisions, and sources of anxiety surrounding these medications.

36. Provider Perspectives on Gender-Affirming Hormonal Treatment in Sickle Cell Disease
Many gender minority adolescents and young adults (AYA) pursue gender-affirming medical care, including hormonal treatment. For gender minority AYA with sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited hematologic disease associated with increased thrombosis risk, use of hormonal treatment presents theoretical hormone-related thrombogenic effects. We explored subspecialty provider perspectives related to gender-affirming hormones among gender minority AYA with SCD. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

37. The Need to Improve Sexual and Reproductive Health Counseling and Screening by Pediatric Subspecialists for Adolescents Prescribed Teratogenic Medications
Teratogenic medication use is ubiquitous among adolescents with chronic disease. Little is known regarding sexual and reproductive health (SRH) counseling and screening related to teratogen prescription by pediatric subspecialists. Rheumatologists in particular prescribe a proportionally high number of teratogens. Our purpose was to describe these practices among a broad sample of rheumatologists caring for adolescents.

38. Health Care Utilization in the College Setting: Perspectives of Emerging Adults With Type 1 Diabetes
Health care transition is associated with poor health outcomes if not planned. Moving to college is a significant life event for many emerging adults, especially those with special health care needs. For students living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), the transition to both adult care and college is often characterized by stress and difficulty self-managing the disease. The Health Care Transition Research Consortium model seeks to provide a theoretical framework for the transition experiences of adolescents; however, it does not consider the ancillary health services available at or near college campuses.

39. Health Care Transition Knowledge, Attitudes and Baseline Readiness Scores of Adolescents With Chronic Health Conditions at the East Avenue Medical Center
Health Care Transition improves quality of life, maximizes independence and minimizes interruption in patient care. Adequate knowledge and careful preparation of the adolescent is essential for a successful health care transition process. The aim of this study is to determine the health care transition knowledge, attitudes and baseline readiness scores of adolescents with chronic health conditions at the East Avenue Medical Center.

41. Feasibility of Snack Provision in a Multidisciplinary Eating Disorder Clinic
Eating disorders in adolescents and young adults have been on the rise over the last several years, especially since the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic. This has led to an increase in inpatient hospitalizations as well as increase in teens and their families seeking outpatient treatment and therapy of their eating disorder. Due to the high risk of physical and nutritional decompensation, early diagnosis and intervention may lead to better outcomes. Family Based Treatment (FBT) is an evidence-based treatment approach that is recommended for patients with eating disorders, primarily Anorexia Nervosa. (Source: Journal of Adolescent Health)

42. Clinical Outcomes Among Adolescents Diagnosed With Anorexia Nervosa During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic saw a rise in the incidence and severity of anorexia nervosa (AN) among youth, accompanied by longer wait times for services and limited opportunities for in-person visits. How these changes affected outcomes for adolescents with AN remains largely unknown. We sought to assess clinical outcomes of adolescents with newly diagnosed AN or atypical AN (AAN) over a 1 year period treated during the pandemic compared to preceding years.

45. Orthorexia Nervosa in the Adolescent Population
Orthorexia nervosa (ON) is a pathological obsession with healthy eating that may lead to protein-calorie malnutrition, yet ON is not a formal medical or psychiatric diagnosis. There is increasing interest surrounding ON as new dieting tactics have emerged including those involving “clean eating.” It is our assumption that patients with eating disorders demonstrate more orthorexic tendencies, but that ON symptoms are present in both patients with eating disorders and in the general adolescent (GA) population.
