  • Voices of Women With Lived Experience of Substance Use During Pregnancy: A
           Qualitative Study of Motivators and Barriers to Recruitment and Retention
           in Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hilliard; Florence; Goldstein, Ellen; Nervik, Kendra; Croes, Kenneth; Ossorio, Pilar N.; Zgierska, Aleksandra E.
      Abstract: Despite concerns about negative neurocognitive effects of in utero substance exposure on child and brain development, research in this area is limited. This study gathered perspectives of persons with lived experience of substance use (eg, alcohol, prescription and illicit opioids, and other illicit substances) during a previous pregnancy to determine facilitators and barriers to research engagement in this vulnerable population. We conducted structured, in-depth, individual interviews and 2 focus groups of adult persons with lived experience of substance use during a previous pregnancy. Questions were developed by clinical, research, bioethics, and legal experts, with input from diverse stakeholders. They inquired about facilitators and barriers to research recruitment and retention, especially in long-term studies, with attention to bio-sample and neuroimaging data collection and legal issues. Interviews and focus groups were audio-recorded, transcribed, and analyzed using inductive coding qualitative analysis methods. Ten participants completed in-depth interviews and 7 participated in focus groups. Three main themes emerged as potential barriers to research engagement: shame of using drugs while pregnant, fear of punitive action, and mistrust of health care and research professionals. Facilitative factors included trustworthiness, compassion, and a nonjudgmental attitude among research personnel. Inclusion of gender-concordant recovery peer support specialists as research team members was the most frequently identified facilitator important for helping participants reduce fears and bolster trust in research personnel. In this qualitative study, persons with lived experience of substance use during a previous pregnancy identified factors critical for engaging this population in research, emphasizing the involvement of peer support specialists as research team members.

  • Materials and Methods for Recruiting Systematically Marginalized Youth and
           Families for Weight-Management Intervention Trials: Community
           Stakeholders' Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hardin; Heather K.; Bender, Anna E.; Killion, Cheryl M.; Moore, Shirley M.
      Abstract: imageRates of overweight and obesity are problematic among systematically marginalized youth; however, these youth and their families are a hard-to-reach research population. The purpose of our study was to identify facilitators and barriers for recruiting systematically marginalized families in youth weight-management intervention research. This study built upon existing evidence through involvement of youth, parents, community agency workers, and school nurses, and an exploration of both recruitment materials and processes. Seven focus groups were conducted with 48 participants from 4 stakeholder groups (youth, parents, school nurses, and community agency workers). A codebook approach to thematic analysis was used to identify key facilitator and barrier themes related to recruitment materials and processes across the stakeholder groups. Ecological systems theory was applied to contextualize the facilitators and barriers identified. Participants reported the need to actively recruit youth in the study through engaging, fun recruitment materials and processes. Participants reported greater interest in recruitment at community-based events, as compared to recruitment through health care providers, underscoring the depth of distrust that this sample group has for the health care system. Recommendations for recruitment materials and processes for weight-management intervention research with systematically marginalized families are proposed.

  • Perceived Role of Asian Indian Fathers in Florida During Mealtimes:
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Krishnakumar; Priya; Coccia, Catherine
      Abstract: imageResearch has shown that fathers play an important role in children's mealtimes and dietary habits; yet, little is known about the factors that affect how fathers perceive this role, especially among Asian Indians. This study aimed to examine how Asian Indian fathers perceive their role during child mealtimes and the factors that are associated with fathers' mealtime perceptions. Eighty Asian Indian fathers of 6- to 11-year-old children completed an online survey including measures of demographics, acculturation, gender roles, nutrition knowledge, parental self-efficacy, perceived child weight, and the role of father at mealtime (ROFM). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and linear regression. Participants perceived a moderately high level of responsibility during child mealtimes. Regression analysis showed that fathers who had higher income, perceived child weight as being higher, and had higher self-efficacy in feeding children healthy food had higher ROFM. Higher father nutrition knowledge was correlated with lower perceived ROFM, indicating a lack of confidence in utilizing their nutrition knowledge during child mealtimes. The results indicate potential targets to improve Asian Indian fathers' involvement during child mealtimes. These results could be utilized to enhance their engagement in child mealtime healthy eating practices and for childhood obesity prevention.

  • Contrasts of Initial and Gain Scores in Obesity Treatment–Targeted
           Psychosocial Variables by Women Participants' Weight Change Patterns Over
           2 Years

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Annesi; James J.; Stewart, Francine A.
      Abstract: imageThe typical pattern of weight change associated with behavioral obesity treatments has been some loss in weight through approximately 6 months, followed by near complete regain. However, patterns vary widely across individuals. The objectives are to determine whether recent prediction model–based indications of relations among changes in psychosocial correlates of the weight loss behaviors of physical activity and controlled eating vary by patterns of weight change. Women with obesity enrolled in a community-based behavioral obesity treatment who failed to lose at least 5% of their baseline weight (Minimal Effect group, n = 44), lost 5% or greater and then regained most during months 6 to 24 (Loss/Regain group, n = 42), or lost 5% or greater and then maintained/continued loss (Loss/Loss group n = 42) were evaluated. Improvements in physical activity– and eating-related self-regulation and self-efficacy, mood, and emotional eating over 6 months were significant overall and generally most favorable in the Loss/Loss group and least favorable in the Minimal Effect group. Expected model–based relationships between 6-month changes in the aforementioned psychosocial variables were significant and generally not significantly affected by weight change group. However, group substantially affected the prediction of self-regulation of eating at month 24—a key correlate of long-term weight loss. Findings suggested community-based obesity treatment targets and emphases.

  • Statewide Physician Survey Regarding Pediatric Muslim Fasting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dabaja; Emman; Haidous, Muhammad; Shihan, Hadeel; Haidar-El-Atrache, Sara
      Abstract: imageDuring Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk for the duration of the month. The current literature focuses on adults who fast, with little attention to pediatric practices. An anonymous, digital survey was conducted using Qualtrics software and distributed to residents, fellows, or attendings in Michigan in 2019. Overall, 278 participants were included in the analysis, with 87% (242/278) identifying as pediatric trained physicians. In all, 82% (228/278) of physicians identified as non-Muslim and 76% (211/278) had never partaken in the Muslim fast. About 52% (141/273) of participants had at least a moderate amount of exposure to Muslim pediatric patients in their clinical practice. Most physicians (66%; 175/265) reported they never asked their pediatric patients or their families about fasting. About 61% (167/273) of participants rated their understanding of fasting as minimal to none. Another 52% (142/273) of participants reported feeling somewhat or extremely uncomfortable discussing fasting recommendations with their pediatric patients and their families. Our study is the first of its kind in assessing current knowledge and practice regarding pediatric Muslim fasting among physicians in the United States. In addition, it highlights a gap in physicians' understanding and comfort in providing anticipatory guidance for their Muslim patients.

  • Differences in Health Care Access, Utilization, and Experiences Among
           LGBTQ+ Subgroups in the Southern United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Holt; Natalie R.; Eldridge-Smith, Elizabeth D.; Griffin, James A.; Stepleman, Lara M.; Drescher, Christopher F.; Casanova, Tracy
      Abstract: imageLesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ+) individuals experience health inequities and barriers to accessing appropriate, affirming care. Little is known about differing health care experiences within the LGBTQ+ population, particularly among individuals living in underserved areas. This study explored health care experiences and utilization among LGBTQ+ subgroups: lesbian and gay cisgender individuals (n = 258), bisexual+ cisgender individuals (n = 71), and transgender and gender-diverse individuals (n = 80). Participants were recruited from a geographic region in South Carolina and Georgia and completed an online survey regarding negative health care experiences, barriers to care, and utilization of different health care venues and services. Results revealed significant differences between LGBTQ+ subgroups, with transgender and gender-diverse participants reporting more discriminatory experiences and greater barriers to care. Bisexual+ cisgender individuals also experienced some disparities compared with lesbian and gay cisgender individuals. Most participants endorsed a need for more competent providers. Findings and recommendations are considered within the context of the Southeastern United States for addressing access and utilization disparities among LGBTQ+ communities.

  • Barriers to and Systems Solutions for Increasing Early Childhood Home
           Visiting Referrals by Health Care Providers Serving Urban and Rural
           Communities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cruz; Theresa H.; Woelk, Leona; Vitanzos Cervantes, Ivy C.; Kaminsky, Alexis
      Abstract: imageEarly childhood home visiting (ECHV) is an evidence-based prevention strategy that directly impacts maternal and child health by mitigating the poor outcomes associated with socioeconomic disadvantage and adverse childhood experiences that disproportionately affect marginalized populations. Despite its promise, health care providers in many communities do not routinely refer patients to these services. This qualitative study examined barriers to health care providers' referrals to ECHV services and identified systems-level strategies to overcome those barriers through semistructured interviews with 37 health care providers in New Mexico. Most participants were pediatricians or family practice physicians working in hospitals or community-based primary care settings, and the majority served rural communities. Barriers included insufficient knowledge about ECHV programs; lack of trust of program providers; time constraints; concerns about available funding; lack of a standardized referral process; and concerns about stigma and messaging. Five systems-level recommendations were developed to improve practice: (1) educating health care providers; (2) developing messaging prompts for providers to use when talking with patients about ECHV; (3) increasing engagement among providers and ECHV programs; (4) standardizing referral systems within practices; and (5) promoting universal referrals. Additional research is ongoing to determine the degree to which these health promotion strategies increase referrals and participation in ECHV.

  • Socioeconomic and Health-Related Factors Affecting Congestive Heart
           Failure Readmissions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gusto; Jollibyrd M.; Prehn, Angela W.
      Abstract: imageCongestive heart failure (CHF) readmissions are frequent and costly but preventable. The purpose of this study was to analyze socioeconomic and health-related factors of CHF readmissions by examining the relationship between 30-day readmissions of individuals with CHF and their payer status, race, ethnicity, primary language spoken, living arrangement, and comorbidities. This retrospective case-control study used secondary data from 450 CHF patients admitted to a not-for-profit Northern Virginia hospital from July 2014 to December 2017. Data were analyzed using χ2 and logistic regression. Living arrangements and comorbid chronic renal failure (CRF) were statistically significant predictors of CHF readmissions; all other factors were nonsignificant. Patients who lived with family and those in assisted living facilities were less likely to be readmitted than those who lived alone (odds ratio [OR] = 0.2 and 0.5, respectively). Patients without CRF were less likely to be readmitted than those who had CRF (OR = 0.6). This study contributes data to inform community-based health programs tailored toward frequently readmitted individuals due to CHF exacerbation.
