Significant Accomplishments

Significant Accomplishments

Eating Disorders Program

The Eating Disorders Program, directed by Laurie Mitan, MD, provides a safe, supportive, caring environment while using evidence-based approaches to treat adolescents with eating disorders. The program includes clinical, research and training missions, and incorporates faculty and staff from the divisions of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology, Child Psychiatry, Nutrition Therapy and others. Working closely with Abbey Tissot, PhD, Associate Director of Research, our program members presented three well-received posters at the 2012 annual meeting of the Academy of Eating Disorders. The posters explore the longitudinal development of eating disorder symptomatology as it relates to physical development, meal content, and meal timing.

Advocacy for Youth in Detention

Paula Braverman, MD, Director of Community Programs, serves as the medical director of the Hamilton County Juvenile Court Youth Center, also known as “2020.” She is recognized nationally for her advocacy and care of detained youth. Braverman was the lead author on a policy statement from the Committee on Adolescence, published in Pediatrics, which addressed health care for incarcerated youth. Youth in the juvenile correctional system are a high-risk population who often have unmet physical, developmental and mental health needs that occur at higher rates than in the general adolescent population. Ideally, the health needs of these youth should be identified when admitted to a juvenile custodial facility. The policy statement provides an overview of the health needs of youth in the juvenile correctional system, including standards for care and evidence-based interventions.

This pilot study assessed the feasibility, acceptability, and utility of a text messaging system that allowed teenagers with asthma to generate and control medical reminders sent to their mobile phones. Participants gave high ratings on the usefulness, acceptability, and ease of use of the text messaging system.  While this study was not powered to determine whether the intervention impacted outcome, it has provided critical data for two ongoing studies which seek to determine if the intervention improves adherence to treatment and ultimately improves asthma outcomes.

Dr. Kahn and colleagues in the Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN) examined risk perceptions after human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination among HIV-infected young women in the context of an HPV vaccine clinical trial. Most young women appropriately perceived that vaccination did not lower their risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) other than HPV, and the vast majority reported that there was still a need for safer sexual behaviors after vaccination. Higher knowledge about HPV and HPV vaccines was associated with perceived need for safer sexual behaviors. Although almost all young women in this study believed that safer sexual behaviors were still important after vaccination, a subset did report that they were at less risk for STIs other than HPV, demonstrating that educational interventions are needed to prevent misperceptions and promote healthy behaviors after vaccination.

Prior studies of quality improvement activities in resident education have focused on resident participation in quality improvement projects of their own creation, which were often not completed.  In contrast, this study demonstrated high rates of participation in hospital-initiated activities which may allow residents to learn crucial skills in a setting that is structured to ensure implementation of quality improvement activities.

In this survey of adolescent girls who received their first human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine dose, most girls appropriately perceived themselves to be at risk of sexually transmitted infections other than HPV, and the vast majority of girls continued to perceive the importance of safer sexual behavior after receiving the vaccine. The study findings also suggest that educating girls and mothers about the HPV vaccine, and encouraging mother-daughter communication about the vaccine, may help prevent misperceptions among girls receiving the vaccine. This study was among the first to show that most adolescent girls understand the limits of protection afforded by the HPV vaccine and thus the need for continued safer sexual behaviors.
