  • A recipe for assessing fidelity in family and health systems.
    • Abstract: Following recipes is an analogy for maintaining intervention integrity, or, fidelity. Fidelity is the extent to which an intervention is implemented as intended. This editorial presents a recipe for assessing fidelity in family and health systems. The author discusses the challenges posed by the complex recipes of families and health systems interventions, in both research and clinical practice. The author concludes that increasing the measurement and reporting of fidelity is paramount in the exploding literature around family and health systems research. Researchers and practice improvement champions must find ways to assess fidelity or its proximal indicators and work to innovate new, more efficient methods that allow for ubiquitous fidelity assessment and monitoring systems, ensuring the best care for the families and system stakeholders they serve.

  • Patterns of coping among caregivers of children with spinal cord injury:
           Associations with parent and child well-being.
    • Abstract: Introduction: Few studies have investigated how caregivers manage stressors associated with their child’s spinal cord injury (SCI) and how these patterns relate to their child’s coping and adjustment. The current study explored empirically derived coping profiles among caregivers of youth with SCI and the relation of these patterns to parent and youth psychosocial outcomes. Method: This was a cross-sectional survey of 318 children (ages 1 to 18) and a primary caregiver. Participants completed measures assessing demographics, coping, quality of life (QOL), anxiety, and depression. We utilized hierarchical and nonhierarchical cluster analyses to identify unique coping patterns and one-way analysis of variance with control variables to assess relations between parental coping and psychosocial well-being. Results: The analyses produced 3 parent coping clusters, which included avoidant (n = 47), constructive (n = 119), and adjusted/low (n = 152). ANCOVAs revealed that parents in the avoidant cluster, who utilized disengagement and blaming strategies, had significantly worse mental health symptoms compared to the constructive and adjusted low coping clusters. Specifically, avoidant coping was significantly related to increased symptoms of caregiver depression (p < .001) and anxiety (p < .001) as well as children’s self-report of anxiety (p = .002), depression (p < .005) and emotional QOL (p < .001). Discussion: These findings highlight the importance of fostering constructive and positive coping for both the children who face chronic illness and their caregivers.

  • Who is driving change, and where is it taking us' Interview with an
           expert.
    • Abstract: In addition to providing critical behavioral health services for those with mental health issues and substance use disorders, some Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) in the United States have begun integrating primary care services, referred to as “reverse integration”. Representing the interests of CMHCs across the United States, the National Council for Behavioral Health (NCBH) represents over 3,000 member organizations delivering mental health and/or addictions treatment and services to roughly 10 million patients and families. This article reflects a recent wide-ranging conversation with Linda Rosenberg, the president and CEO of NCBH. Trained as a social worker, Rosenberg was senior deputy commissioner of the New York State Office of Mental Health prior to joining the NCBH and is a dynamic and high-energy strategist and thought leader in the field of community mental health and integrated care. We discussed issues impacting payment for integrated care, including private equity investment, capitated payment, and the role of risk, and how these market dynamics impact vulnerable populations. For the sake of brevity, we summarize our conversation with Ms. Rosenberg and offer her perspective to integrated care practitioners and researchers who largely operate outside of this world of business built on calculated risks and rewards.

  • The first year.
    • Abstract: Poetry representing research data can be a powerful tool to further empathy and understanding of participants’ stories (Furman, Lietz, & Langer, 2006). This poem represents a semi-structured interview, with portions transcribed to embody utterances, tone, and phrasing in the poem’s form. The transcription has been rearranged to produce a holistic and focused story. A combination of Poindexter’s (2002) and Gee’s (1991) linguistic approaches and work inspired the construction of this poem. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • My first client: The lioness.
    • Abstract: This poem is about a mother who suffered from borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia. The mother recently lost custody of her daughter due to her physical abuse of the child. Both were ordered by the court to attend therapy sessions to improve their attachment. As a family therapist, I struggled to keep a balance between empathizing with, and challenging the mother. I wrote this poem and used it in session to help the mother appreciate the effect of her aggressive behaviors on her daughter. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Healthcare’s wicked questions: A complexity approach.
    • Abstract: The previous President’s Column explored Glouberman and Zimmerman’s (2002) differentiation of complex problems versus those that fall under the domains of simple or complicated, concluding with an invitation to enter the fray for health care’s future state (Valeras, 2019). In this second column on the subject of complexity, the author invites us to continue to explore the topic of complexity and embrace it within health care, rather than shy away from it, in order influence the future state. One tactic, when engaging with a complex adaptive system, is to ask Wicked Questions. Williamson (2015) defines Wicked Questions as what is used to to expose the assumptions which shape our actions and choices. Some of the Wicked Questions that can be asked regarding the U.S. health care system are discussed. Exploring complexity and complex adaptive systems may provide the way forward for the challenges we face in health care. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Treating pain in primary care: Optimizing an integrated psychological
           intervention based on perspectives of psychologists, primary care
           providers, and patients.
    • Abstract: Introduction: Although behavioral health treatment can improve distress and pain functioning for patients with chronic pain, few who are referred by their primary care physician will see a behavioral health specialist. Given the benefits of integrating behavioral health into primary care, this may be an avenue for delivering a psychological intervention for chronic pain. The purpose of this study was to optimize a psychological intervention for patients with chronic pain to be delivered in primary care, utilizing the perspectives of providers and patients. Method: Psychologists (n = 9), primary care providers (n = 9), and patients with chronic pain (n = 9) participated in separate focus groups. Participants reviewed the proposed 4-session intervention, provided feedback prompted by a set of open-ended questions, and completed a survey. Results: Statements from focus groups were transcribed and coded into 2 thematic categories: (a) content of the intervention and (b) logistics and design. Participants believed that offering a brief, behavioral intervention for chronic pain in a primary care clinic was feasible and useful. All providers (100%) agreed or strongly agreed that they would refer a patient to this intervention, and 100% of patients agreed or strongly agreed that they would participate. Discussion: Feedback solicited from the focus groups led to alterations to the treatment manual, such as adding a fifth session, using different psychological strategies, and logistical changes in delivery (i.e., meeting biweekly and intervisit contacts). The modified version of this intervention will be evaluated with a pilot randomized controlled clinical trial. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Prevalence and characteristics of universal depression screening in U.S.
           college health centers.
    • Abstract: Introduction: Whereas universal depression screening has potential to increase identification of mental health concerns among college students, the prevalence of universal screening in college health centers is unknown. This study provides an estimate of the prevalence of universal depression screening at public, 4-year universities in the United States. It also documents systems-level facilitators and correlates of universal screening, as well as reasons for not screening. Method: Online cross-sectional survey of college health center directors and student health personnel of public 4-year universities. Results: There were 131 participants who responded to the survey (25% response): 64.2% (54–74%; 95% confidence interval [CI]) of respondents reported that their clinics use universal depression screening. Characteristics associated with universal depression screening use clustered around systems-level resources, including larger student populations and health care staff, greater perceived financial resources, and shorter estimates of time required for screening. Universal screening use was also associated with respondents’ awareness of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation, agreement with the evidence base supporting universal depression screening, and beliefs that codified standards support effective care. Leading reasons for not screening included: lack of mental health professionals, provider reluctance, liability concerns, and lack of clinic space. Discussion: Universal depression screening is reasonably common among college health centers. Care planner discussions regarding depression screening initiatives should address resource concerns, awareness of the USPSTF recommendation and evidence base, and information about the average time it takes to screen. Future research should examine functional outcomes and implementation experiences of college health centers that have adopted universal depression screening.

  • The impact of behavioral health consultations on medical encounter
           duration in pediatric primary care: A retrospective match-controlled
           study.
    • Abstract: Introduction: The disproportionate time required to effectively manage psychosocial concerns is a key barrier to advancing delivery of behavioral care by primary care providers. Improved time efficiency is one potential benefit of the integration of behavioral health consultants (BHCs) into pediatric care, but few studies have systematically studied this outcome. We examined the impact of embedded BHCs on duration of medical encounters in a pediatric primary care clinic. Method: We conducted a retrospective matched-pairs analysis of encounters involving behavioral consultations versus encounters for similar patients that did not include a consultation (N = 114) using electronic health record timestamp data. We examined both medical duration (i.e., medical provider services) and total duration (i.e., medical services + behavioral consultation). Results: Patient encounters involving behavioral consultation had a significantly longer (+11.23 min) total duration than matched controls, but significantly shorter (−11.67 min) medical duration. Discussion: The results indicate BHCs may improve primary care provider efficiency for patients with behavioral concerns, a notable finding given the impact of clinical time-constraints on important health care outcomes.

  • Relationship between parent mood and resilience and child health outcomes
           in pediatric asthma.
    • Abstract: Introduction: Asthma is the most common pediatric chronic disease and disproportionately affects urban, minority, and disadvantaged youth. This study explored the relationship between parent and child psychosocial functioning and asthma-related health outcomes in a sample of at-risk children with asthma. We hypothesized that greater parent resilience would be associated with better parent mood, more symptom-free days (SFDs), better child mood, and less child anxiety. Further, we hypothesized that parent resilience would moderate the relationship between parent mood and SFDs. Method: We performed a secondary analysis of baseline cross-sectional enrollment data. Parents of African American children on Medicaid with persistent asthma reported their children’s asthma SFDs and their own measures of parent quality of life, mood, and resilience, and child mood and anxiety. Results: Baseline data from 217 parents (92.2% female, Mage = 33.8 years ± 9.5) of children (Mage = 6.6 years ± 2.3) were available. Parent resilience was significantly associated with parent mood. Better parent-reported quality of life (QOL) and mood were significantly associated with more child asthma SFDs. In contrast to our hypothesis, parent resilience did not moderate the relationship between parent mood and SFDs. Discussion: Higher parent-reported QOL and mood were significantly associated with better parent report of child asthma SFDs. Although parent resilience was associated with parent mood, it did not moderate the relationship to child SFDs. Future research is warranted to better understand the unique contribution of resilience in families with children with asthma. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Pediatric palliative care in the medical neighborhood for children with
           medical complexity.
    • Abstract: Children with medical complexity (CMC) are a medically fragile pediatric population that experience severe chronic illnesses resulting in significant health care needs, functional limitations, and health care utilization, and are at the highest risk for morbidity and mortality among all children. Furthermore, families and parents of CMC experience significant caregiver hardships and diminished quality of life. The field of pediatric palliative care has grown in recent years, in part to address the physical and psychosocial issues inherent to the care of these chronically ill children. However, as the prevalence and long-term survival of CMC increases with medical advancements, the demand for pediatric palliative care will likely exceed the capacity of current and future pediatric palliative care specialists. Therefore, alternative strategies to ensure access to essential aspects of palliative care must be considered. This article focuses on why and how high-quality palliative care should be integrated into the patient- and family-centered medical home, the ideal care delivery model for CMC and their families. We first discuss how palliative care principles naturally align with and complement the goals of the CMC medical home. Next, we detail what actions pediatric palliative care specialists can take to best support the CMC medical home as “medical neighbors.” Lastly, we describe the fundamental aspects of pediatric palliative care that all clinicians caring for CMC should be able to provide, referred to as “primary pediatric palliative care.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)

  • HELLP—I need somebody.
    • Abstract: This narrative traces the development of a relationship between a family physician and a challenging patient who undergoes a cerebro-vascular accident following severe eclampsia. The story describes the patient’s complicated relations with her husband, her community, the medical system, and the newborn whom she unconsciously blames for her situation. The slow painful process of developing trust in the therapeutic relationship over nearly 2 decades enables the patient to eventually reflect on herself and consider forgiveness. All identifying information regarding the case was changed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
