ABSTRACT:

Considerable attention is being given to the use of research evidence to inform public policy making. Building upon Weiss's model of research utilization, we examined the types and uses of evidence that child welfare administrators used in response to federal policy reforms requiring psychotropic medications oversight for children in foster care. Participants relied on a range of "global" and "local" evidence types throughout the policy development phase. Global research evidence was used to raise awareness about problems associated with psychotropic medication use. Local evidence helped...

ABSTRACT:

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is an independent body comprised of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine. The primary audience for the USPSTF's work is primary care clinicians, and many consider the Task Force's recommendations to be definitive standards for preventive services.

ABSTRACT:

Traditional drill and practice (TDP) and incremental rehearsal (IR) are flashcard drill techniques for teaching sight words to students. Although both have extensive research support, no study to date has compared these methods with children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Utilizing an adaptive alternating treatments design, the present study compared TDP and IR with a second-grade student, educated in a substantially separate classroom, who was diagnosed with ASD (N = 1). Retention, maintenance, and generalization results suggested that both methods were effective...

We examined factors associated with psychiatrists' self-reported monitoring of children who were prescribed SGAs.

Methods
A survey was mailed to a national, randomly selected sample of 1600 child and adolescent psychiatrists from the...

ABSTRACT:

A recent US National Institutes of Health (NIH) advisory1 to its director raises alarm about the future of the physician-scientist, a concern that other articles have noted as well.2,3 The shrinking NIH budget (in real terms) is a well-known barrier to the careers of young investigators, and pediatricians have not been immune. Indeed, the rates of NIH grant awards to departments of pediatrics have declined from 23.8% to 16.8% during the past decade.4 Because the NIH advisory also criticized the certifying boards for not doing enough to support the physician-scientist...
