Transactional Model of Parental Adjustment and Caregiving Burden Following a Children's Acquired Disability
Conclusions  The findings revealed the relationship between objective severity indices and caregiver burden. They suggest that parents ’ adjustment may affect their perception of the child’s adjustment to disability, and emphasize the role of parental perceptions over time. Therefore, parents who are less likely to adjust effectively should be identified early on to facilitate professional intervention. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Psychology)

Parental Experiences of Adolescent Cancer-Related Fatigue: A Qualitative Study
ConclusionsParents see adolescent cancer-related fatigue as multi-faceted and experience it as unpredictable and attributed to cancer. They struggle to distinguish normal adolescent behavior from problematic fatigue, and to balance supporting and empowering the adolescent to live life to the fullest whilst also being realistic about the limitations imposed by fatigue and the benefits of activity. Parents try to manage fatigue practically but want more information about adolescent cancer-related fatigue to help establish their own and their adolescent ’s expectations.

Commentary:  Harnessing the Parent Perspective to Understand Cancer-Related Fatigue in Adolescents
As a result of medical innovations, survival rates for pediatric cancer are around 83% today (Siegel, 2016). Unfortunately, two thirds of survivors of childhood cancer will experience long-term side effects from their cancer and its treatments (Blaauwbroek et al., 2007), such as fatigue. Fatigue is defined as a general lack of energy, tiredness, or exhaustion, is different from the tiredness a person feels at the end of the day, is not related to activity, and may not resolve with additional rest or sleep (Canadian Cancer Society, 2019). Up to 100% of children report experiencing fatigue during and immediately after cancer...

Illness Uncertainty Longitudinally Predicts Distress Among Caregivers of Children Born With DSD
AbstractObjectiveA subset of parents of children with disorders/differences of sex development (DSD) including ambiguous genitalia experience clinically elevated levels of anxious and depressive symptoms. Research indicates that uncertainty about their child ’s DSD is associated with parent psychosocial distress; however, previous studies have been cross-sectional or correlational in nature. The current study is the first to examine the longitudinal trajectory of the relationship between caregiver-perceived uncertainty about their child’s DSD and ca regiver anxious and depressive symptoms across the first 12 mo...

In some cases, institutions have halted in-person visits that are not of medical necessity. This has left many randomized behavioral clinical trials in unprecedented positions.

Predictors of Distinct Trajectories of Medical Responsibility in Youth with Spina Bifida
ConclusionsMost youth exhibited relatively rapid increases in responsibility over the course of late childhood and adolescence, but there was a smaller portion of the sample that did not exhibit this type of developmental trajectory. The magnitude of the IQ effect on group differentiation appeared to attenuate the effects of most other predictors. It will be important for clinicians working with youth with SB to recognize that the transfer of medical responsibility from parent to child cannot be expected to unfold in the same manner for all families of youth with SB.

JPP Student Journal Club Commentary: Associations between Boys ’ Early Childhood Exposure to Family and Neighborhood Poverty and Body Mass Index in Early Adolescence

For example, the uptake and implementation of behavioral interventions to prevent obesity may be restricted by neighborhood level factors such as reduced access to healthy foods and limited areas for physical activity (Drewnowski& Specter, 2004;Sallis et  al., 2012).

Over the past several years, there has been increasing attention to transparency in the conduct of and reporting of clinical trials. This is for good reason.

JPP Student Journal Club Commentary: From Clinic to Community: Translating Obesity Intervention Research Findings to Applications
Since at least 2001, rural children are more likely to be overweight or obese than their urban counterparts (Johnson& Johnson, 2015;Ogden et  al., 2018). Despite this statistic, many, if not most, randomized control trials of weight management have been conducted with controlled, urban, clinic settings with middle- to upper-income participants, thus creating a gap between research findings and real-world application. Unsurprisingly, evidence-based practices tailored for urban populations may be less successful when applied to rural areas, given the differences in resource availability, and cultural factors.
