Promoting the best mental health outcome following hospital admission in children
CHA Leading Thinkers
Hospital-based healthcare aims to promote the best health outcomes for children, this should include mental health outcomes. Yet we know that children can be at risk of poorer mental health outcomes even with good physical health outcomes. In this presentation Emeritus Professor Justin Kenardy will describe the how often these outcomes occurs, some reasons why, and research into what can be done to promote better mental health outcomes.
Specialized Teams for the Care of Micropremature Infants - Sunnybrook Health Service Centre, Toronto
NICU and Special Care Nurseries
Micropremature infants (born at < 26 weeks’ gestation) have a high risk of mortality or morbidity and are amongst the most challenging patients we care for. Join Dr Michael Dunn, Senior Neonatalogist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Professor in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Toronto to discuss organizational modifications that could lead to improved outcomes for babies and families.
Join this web conference to hear how numerous health districts in NZ joined forces to create a regional climate change risk assessment, reducing workload and costs and fostering collaboration and awareness between health districts. Hear also about the Greening Starship project at Starship Children’s Hospital, an institution wide commitment to environmental stewardship led by clinicians reducing the carbon footprint of one of the largest children’s health services in New Zealand.
Working towards Standard 8: using the electronic Escalation Mapping Tool
Paediatric Safety & Quality
The Escalation Mapping Template (EMT) is a quality improvement tool which can be used to assess the effectiveness of health service providers’ systems for recognising and responding to deterioration in a person’s mental state. The EMT supports services to map their local processes to the systemic recognition and response model, and to evaluate the effectiveness of their processes. Andrew Moors from The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, will give an update on recognising and responding to deterioration in a person’s mental state, including the release of the New & Improved Online EMT. Casey Fowler, Emergency Team CNC, will provide an overview of how Children’s Health QLD used the EMT to map their existing escalation processes.
Adolescent Mentalization-Based Integrative Therapy (AMBIT): A framework to support practice
Child and Adolescent Mental Health
In this talk we will focus on an introduction to AMBIT and how this has been implemented in to a State-wide service for adolescents with persistent, severe and complex needs. AMBIT is a mentalization-based team approach to service hard to reach young people with multiple difficulties including mental health problems (Bevington et al., 2015). It has been specifically developed to support the delivery of evidence-based work, integrated via mentalization-based principles and practices, to a group of young people who are not actively seeking help and who may be oppositional to efforts to help them.
Improving access to care for trans, gender diverse and non-binary young people in rural and regional Australia
Vulnerable Children Series
Referrals to specialist gender services across Australia have increased significantly over the past 10 years in Australia. Unfortunately, the increased demand has severely compromised wait times for these services, and for trans young people living in rural and regional Australia, accessing care can be especially difficult. Gateway Health in Albury-Wodonga commenced a shared care partnership with the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne in 2015. Join Associate Professor Michelle Telfer from RCH, Kerry Power from Gateway and Dr Mark Norden and Dr Andrew Rechtman from Albury Wodonga Paediatric Group - to discuss this model of shared care, with a view to assisting the development of further networks across rural, regional and metropolitan centres to improve access to gender affirming care across the entire Australian system.
Order out of chaos? Autism spectrum disorder coordinators' impact on service delivery in New Zealand
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects 1 in 160 children globally. Each individual with autism has a unique life experience with different onset, combinations, severities, and persistence of ASD symptoms and co-occurring conditions. Accordingly, there is no one-size-fits-all healthcare approach, and healthcare must be agile, responsive, and, above all, accessible. Families of children with ASD often experience challenges navigating multiple systems to access services.
Positive Behaviour Support in Children and Adolescents at risk of Acute Behaviour Disturbance
Acute Behaviour Disturbance presents a significant challenge and burden for health services to manage. Understanding and identifying potential triggers and applying supportive strategies that use a strengths based approach, improves patient and family experience while also maintaining a safe workplace for staff. Join Geraldine Dyer from The Gold Coast University Hospital to discuss a tool that identifies a patients triggers and strengths and strategies to support children and young people attending their hospital. The tool acts as a preventive measure rather than measure that is reactive to an Acute Behaviour Disturbance (ABD).
Parental recognition of the deteriorating child in the Emergency Department
Paediatric Emergency Care
Children in the Emergency Department (ED) deteriorate unexpectedly. Paediatric sentinel events and coroners’ cases have recurring themes related to parent/carers' inability to effectively escalate their concerns about their child's deterioration whilst in the ED. Early recognition of deterioration is fundamental for providing timely treatment and improving outcomes for children. Gain insight into this multi-site pilot project coordinated by Safer Care Victoria and launched by Monash Health; which tested a proactive method for assessing for caregiver concern, and some of the outcome data we have gathered about the relationship between caregiver concern and serious illness.
Murra Mullangari Program - Cultural Safety and Cultural Humility Educations
Improving Value in Healthcare
Murra Mullangari developed by The Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) is the first Indigenous-developed Cultural Safety and Humility program for practising nursing and midwifery specifically. The term ‘Cultural’ in Cultural Safety is not about cultural identity, ethnicity or traditions. Rather, it’s about the ‘culture’ of power. The program is one aspect of life-long learning towards achieving Cultural Safety and Cultural Humility in Nursing and Midwifery practice, especially when caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It also contributes to eliminating racism and addressing inequities in Nursing and Midwifery workforce and in health outcomes. Clinically safe practice is not possible without culturally safe practice.
