Collaborative funded to improve screening for intimate partner violence

Elizabeth CoxDr. Elizabeth Cox, in collaboration with the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence and West Virginia University, received a Tier 1 Eugene Washington Engagement Award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). This award will develop a collaborative focused on improving screening for intimate partner violence (IPV) in healthcare settings.  Screening for IPV can increase identification by 133%, and both providers and patients, including victims, are generally supportive of screening.  However, screening rates among physicians are low, and current practices are not effective.

Family engagement in pediatric sickle cell disease visits

Parent, Child, DoctorIn a recent article, Dr. Elizabeth Cox et al. sought to explore the origins of communication challenges that adults with sickle cell disease report having in clinic visits. They compared communication between physicians and families in pediatric sickle cell disease, diabetes, and asthma by analyzing videos and parent surveys, and found that children were less engaged in sickle cell disease visits, with providers gathering information from parents more frequently. These findings highlight the opportunity to improve sickle cell disease care by enhancing patient engagement.

The unchartered frontier: Preventive cardiology between the ages of 15 and 35

Heart Care

Risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), such as atherosclerosis and lifestyle behaviors such as poor diet, begin in childhood and can progress through the adult years. A recent review co-authored by Dr. Heather Johnson emphasizes that in order to reduce the burden of CVD, it is important to not only treat risk factors in adolescents and young adults, but also to prevent those risk factors from developing in the first place. Methods to assess CVD risk and deliver cardiovascular preventive care to young adults are also discussed.
