Significant Publications

Copeland KA, Sherman SN, Khoury JC, Foster KE, Saelens BE, Kalkwarf HJ. Wide variability in physical activity environments and weather-related outdoor play policies in child care centers within a single county of Ohio. Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 165(5): pg 435-442. 2011.
This was the first study to note the importance of weather-related policies for outdoor play in child care. Depending on the policies and indoor options for gross-motor play, child-care centers may not have any opportunity for active play on days with subfreezing temperatures and light rain. The study was also among the first detailed assessments of the indoor and outdoor playground offerings at child-care centers and to identify a correlation between lower quality physical activity facilities in centers in with a high percentage of children receiving tuition-assistance. 
Kalkwarf HJ, Laor T, Bean JA. Fracture risk in children with a forearm injury is associated with volumetric bone density and cortical area (by peripheral QCT) and areal bone density (by DXA). Osteoporos Int. 22(2): pg 607-616. 2011.
This study examined the correlation between bone mineral density and risk of fracture in children with similar mechanisms of forearm injuries. It's finding that there is an increased risk of fracture with lower bone density suggests that interventions to increase bone density may reduce the incidence of forearm fracture.  Such interventions may also prove to helpful in other extremity fractures.
White CM, Schoettker PJ, Conway PH, Geiser M, Olivea J, Pruett R, Kotagal UR. Utilizing improvement science methods to optimise medication reconciliation. BMJ quality & safety. 20(4): p. 372-380. 2011.
In 2005, The Joint Commission included medication reconciliation as a National Patient Safety Goal to reduce medication errors related to omissions, duplications and interactions. Hospitals continue to struggle to implement successful programs that meet these objectives. The authors used improvement methods and reliability principles to develop and implement a sustained process for medication reconciliation completion at admission at a large, pediatric medical center. Interventions focused on five main areas: leadership and support from senior physicians and nurses to sustain a culture of safety; simplification and standardization of the electronic medication reconciliation application; clarifying roles and responsibilities; creating a highly reliable and visible system. 
Lanphear BP, Hornung RW, Khoury J, Yolton K, Lierl M, Kalkbrenner A. Effects of HEPA air cleaners on unscheduled asthma visits and asthma symptoms for children exposed to secondhand tobacco smoke. Pediatrics. 127(1): pg 93-101. 2011.
This NIH-funded study is one of the very few randomized controlled trials to examine the efficacy of HEPA air cleaners in asthma treatment and control of symptoms. Although it did not reduce reported symptoms, there was a modest reduction in unscheduled asthma visits and particulate matter. It suggests that HEPA air cleaners may be a useful, passive adjunct to management of asthma in children.
Brady PW, Conway PH, Goudie A. Length of intravenous antibiotic therapy and treatment failure in infants with urinary tract infections. Pediatrics. 126(2): pg 196-203. 2010.
Two randomized trials had failed to show a difference in outcomes for treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs) by intravenous (IV) versus oral antibiotic therapy, but concerns existed these may have been underpowered to detect a difference in infants <6 months.  Our large, >12,000 patient retrospective cohort study found that treatment failure for infant UTI is uncommon (1.9%).  When adjusted for propensity for infants to receive long course  (>3 days) IV antibiotics there was no difference in treatment failure rates between infants who received and long and short course antibiotics. Treating more infants with short course IV therapy may decrease resource use without affecting readmission rates.

Division Highlights

Patrick Brady, MD, MSc

Dr. Brady's research interests involve defining predictors and early warning signs of clinical deterioration and then developing highly reliable interventions to identify and mitigate risk to eliminate patient harm.  He is leading large scale improvement projects on patient safety using the concept of situation awareness to decrease patient harm and unsafe transfers.  His goals are both to achieve measurably safer care among inpatients at Cincinnati Children's and to describe and disseminate generalizable interventions to improve situation awareness and patient safety more broadly.

Wiliam Brinkman, MD, MEd

Dr. Brinkman's work focuses on shared decision making between clinicians and patients/parents to deliver care that is evidence-based, family-centered, and of high value. Recent research has explored how physicians and families interact to make treatment decisions for children with ADHD. Dr. Brinkman is currently funded by the National Institute of Mental Health to study factors that influence parent decisions after their child is diagnosed with ADHD.  In addition, he continues to study interventions to facilitate shared decision making in the care of children with ADHD.

Significant Accomplishments

Social Discriminants of Healthcare Utilization in Children with Asthma

Investigators within the Division of General Pediatrics have been working to better understand the social determinants of asthma and ways to intervene to mitigate socioeconomic risks.  Adapting ideas from social economists, Jeff Simmons, MD, and Robert Kahn, MD, PhD, have measured “financial strain” that is associated with a four-fold gradient of asthma readmission risk and is a more important predictor of readmission than race or insurance status.  Financial strain is measured with seven simple questions such as whether a family had to borrow money or move in with others during the past year. Their fellow, Andrew Beck, MD, has found strong correlations between a family’s financial strain and neighborhood measures of socioeconomic risk based on census data and found a 20-fold gradient of asthma admission risk between different neighborhoods in Cincinnati.

These clinician-researchers have used these insights to contribute to institutional multidisciplinary asthma quality improvement work lead by Mona Mansour, MD, MS, and Carolyn Kercsmar, MD, MS (pulmonary).  Many interventions have been implemented that have resulted in children with Medicaid having 30-day and 90-day readmission rates that have decreased by 45 percent and 25 percent, respectively.  Analyses of this work, funded by a Cincinnati Beacon Communities grant, are ongoing.

Online Master’s and Certificate Programs in Medical Education  

The Online Master’s Degree in Education for Healthcare Professionals Program was launched in 2002 and represented a collaboration between the division and the University of Cincinnati College of Education. A Certificate in Medical Education Program was added in 2004.  The programs were developed to address the need for an educational conceptual knowledge and research base for physician and other healthcare professional educators. Developed and administered by Kadriye Lewis, EdD, and Raymond Baker, MD, MEd, these programs were the first totally on-line programs of their kind in the United States and have had over 240 students enrolled.  To date, there have been 51 master’s graduates and 31 certificates issued to professionals from 34 states, Puerto Rico and four countries.  Students come from an array of medical specialties, surgery, dentistry and nursing.  Based on a survey of 12 master’s graduates, who collectively have 52 peer-reviewed papers, $4.25 million in extramural funding (21 grants), 37 teaching awards and six promotions, the program has been highly successful in enhancing the development of academic medical education leaders. Graduates hold leadership positions including a dean, GME program directors and a departmental vice chair. As such, the program has developed a national and international reputation for excellence and plays an important role in training future leaders in medical education.
