The epidemiological transition towards non-communicable diseases is characterised by an upward shift in age of disease burden across the lifecourse. One response, within a suite of wider actions, would be to extend the upper age limit of paediatric practice to embrace adolescent health. We did an online survey to explore the upper age limit of paediatric care, obtaining responses from 1372 paediatricians in 115 countries. Marked variation in the upper age limit was apparent.

Bridge study protocol: an international, observational cohort study on the transition of healthcare for adolescents with chronic conditions
TLDR

Development of an international standard set of patient-centred outcome measures for overall paediatric health: a consensus process
TLDR
An Overall Pediatric Health Standard Set of outcome measures that captures what matters to young people and their families and recognising the biopsychosocial aspects of health for all children and adolescents regardless of health condition is developed.
Evaluation of E148Q and Concomitant AA Amyloidosis in Patients with Familial Mediterranean Fever
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of patients with homozygous E 148Q genotype for close monitoring and further evaluation, and the possible relationship between E148Q and AA amyloidosis needs to be confirmed in other ethnicities.
Literature review: Substance use screening and co-morbidity in medically hospitalized youth.
TLDR
Current screening practices for SU in the MIP clinical setting are subpar and likely result in an underestimation of incidence and morbidity due to limited use of systematic screening tools, according to a systematic review of literature.
The use of convalescent plasma for pediatric patients with SARS-CoV-2: A systematic literature review
TLDR
There is insufficient clinical information on the safety and efficacy of convalescent plasma therapy in children with COVID-19, but the positive outcomes of the few case reports published to date suggest that convalescence plasma therapy may be of potential benefit.

    Archives of Disease in Childhood
  • 2021
TLDR
The Archivist has never supported physically restraining angry or violent and emotionally charged children in the emergency department or on the ward but Dalton E M et al (Pediatrics 2021;148:e2020003939) have tackled this issue and provide some excellent advice and suggestions on how to prevent the need for restraint.
How do children and adolescents experience healthcare professionals? Scoping review and interpretive synthesis
TLDR
It is proposed that a criterion for high-quality child-centred healthcare should be that HCPs communicate in ways that engender trust and involvement, and strengthen the case for making CADs partners in healthcare despite their youth.

Child and Adolescent Health From 1990 to 2015
TLDR
Global trends were driven by reductions in mortality owing to infectious, nutritional, and neonatal disorders, which in the aggregate led to a relative increase in the importance of noncommunicable diseases and injuries in explaining global disease burden.
Age Limit of Pediatrics
TLDR
The decision to continue care with a pediatrician or pediatric medical or surgical subspecialist must take into account the physical and psychosocial needs of the patient and the abilities of the pediatric provider to meet these needs.

TLDR
Adolescents and young adults have benefited from the epidemiological transition less than children have, with a reversal of traditional mortality patterns over the past 50 years, and future global health targets should include a focus on the health problems of people aged 10-24 years.
