Congenital Heart Disease and Neurodevelopment Excerpt :

Congenital Heart Disease and Neurodevelopment: Understanding and Improving Outcomes brings together the work of leading researchers from the U.K., Europe, and the U.S. to provide a comprehensive examination of the causes, risks, and neurodevelopmental and psychological outcomes in children with congenital heart disease. The book includes longitudinal studies which have tracked outcomes from birth through late childhood and explores the emergent phenotype and etiologies, risk, and protective factors that strengthen proposed models. Medical and surgical advances have meant that greater numbers of children with even the most severe congenital heart disease (CHD) now survive well into adulthood. Studies over the past 20 years have suggested certain neurodevelopmental and psychological features are common, with clinical interventions being internationally articulated. The U.K. Belfast Center has developed and evaluated unique early intervention programs to circumvent the common problems discerned and promote optimal adjustment and outcomes. The first edition of Congenital Heart Disease and Neurodevelopment: Understanding and Improving Outcomes describes these programs in detail and outlines promising results obtained by researchers worldwide. Such interventions, together with the U.S. consensus statement (Circulation, 2012) on neurodevelopmental screening, hold great promise for clinical interventions. Features input from leading research experts in the field Describes cutting-edge research on longitudinal studies that link neurodevelopmental phenotypes with cutting-edge neuroimaging studies Discusses the first series of early intervention studies developed in Belfast targeted at key developmental transitions—birth and diagnosis, early childhood, and adolescence Includes clinical implications and action points in each section Features generalizable potential of interventions across other pediatric populations

Neurodevelopmental and Psychological Phenotypes in Congenital Heart Disease Excerpt :

Medical and surgical advances have meant that greater numbers of children with even the most severe congenital heart disease (CHD) now survive well into adulthood. This essentially represents an emergent clinical population. Empirical studies over the past 20 years have suggested certain neurodevelopmental and psychological features are common, with a phenotype becoming clear and implications for clinical interventions being internationally articulated. This volume brings together the work of the leading researchers in this area from the U.K., Europe, and the U.S. These include longitudinal studies which have tracked neurodevelopmental and psychological outcomes from birth through to late childhood. In this book, the emergent phenotype will be explored and, importantly, etiologies, risk, and protective factors elucidated using longitudinal designs that strengthen proposed models. Uniquely, the U.K. Belfast Center has developed and evaluated early intervention programmes to circumvent the common problems discerned and promote optimal adjustment and outcomes. The first edition of Neurodevelopmental and Psychological Phenotypes in Children with Congenital Heart Disease describes these programs in detail and outlines promising results obtained by researchers worldwide. Such interventions, together with the U.S. consensus statement (Circulation, 2012) on neurodevelopmental screening, will be considered as models of good clinical interventions for this population. * Written by the leading research experts in the field - U.K., U.S. and Europe. * Derived from cutting-edge research in the area conducted by the authors, who have led longitudinal studies that have strengthened findings and model credibility. * Describes leading research from Boston that link neurodevelopmental phenotypes with cutting edge neuroimaging studies. * Discusses the first series of early intervention studies developed in Belfast targeted at key developmental transitions - birth/diagnosis, early child

AN URBAN BIOETHICS APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING DISPARITIES IN NEURODEVELOPMENTAL OUTCOMES FOR CHILDREN WITH CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE Excerpt :

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and often resultsin neurodevelopmental impairments and psychological problems which impede educational and occupational attainment and decrease overall quality of life into adulthood. While morbidity and mortality outcomes have improved over the last several decades, non-Hispanic black and Hispanic children continue to experience a disproportionate burden of CHD. An urban bioethics approach to disparities in cardiac neurodevelopmental outcomes necessitates an examination of the context, setting, and structures in which CHD care is delivered. This thesis proposes a model through which access to and quality of cardiac care impact disparities in neurodevelopmental outcomes. The thesis describes an initial evaluation of the proposed model conducted through retrospective record review. Though research funding and hospital resources have historically flowed toward optimizing surgical and other clinical care techniques, results indicate that factors such as poverty and other social determinants of health have a greater impact on many CHD outcomes. An urban bioethics framework asks us to additionally consider the ways in which cardiac care teams act as barriers to high quality care. Findings are discussed in terms of next steps and a proposed qualitative study to further evaluate results.

Congenital Anomalies Excerpt :

Nowadays, nobody can imagine practicing obstetrics without using obstetrical ultrasound. Working in the prenatal diagnosis field requires dedication, patience, skills, experience, caution, and empathy. The concept of this book was guided by the desire to provide some help to the ultrasound operators. On a daily basis, they are confronted with the challenging task of ruling out or suspecting/confirming the diagnosis of fetal anomalies, either structural or chromosomal. The chapters of this book contain objective and exhaustive updated reviews of the pertinent literature, so that the reader would have a wide reference basis on each subject. Yet, many authors scan the fetus themselves or are directly involved with managing pregnancies with structural malformations or chromosomal anomalies. They kindly shared their personal experience and lessons learned over the years. This book is beneficial for all the professionals working in the prenatal diagnosis.

Handbook of Treatment Planning for Children with Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders Excerpt :

This handbook addresses treatment planning for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDDs) using a medical home perspective. It examines the medical home model, which has been promoted as the standard of care by the American Academy of Pediatrics since 2002, emphasizing collaboration between patients, families, and providers to optimize care. The handbook addresses treatment planning, including the coordination of the care provided by multiple specialists with a clear, shared vision for maximizing each child’s potential. Key areas of coverage include: · Elements of treatment planning, history of the medical home model, documentation, and strategies to facilitate communication. · Goals of treatment from the perspectives of the family, person served, care providers, and fiscal and regulatory bodies. · Role of each specialist, highlighting the most common conditions experienced by children with ASD and other NDD with expectations for assessment and treatment. · Detailed recommendations for making referrals and assisting the child and family in preparing for appointments. The Handbook of Treatment Planning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Other Neurodevelopmental Disabilities is a must-have resource for researchers, professors, and graduate students as well as clinicians, therapists, and other professionals across such interrelated disciplines as clinical child, school, and developmental psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, rehabilitation medicine/therapy, pediatrics, and special education.
