In The News: ‘The Birds and the Bees,’ Ultrasound-guided IV Line Placement, First CHOPS Syndrome Symposium, Social Media-based Parenting Program, Bystander CPR

Take a look at who’s been in the press lately. This week we’re covering physician-endorsed parent-teen talks, the high rate of success with ultrasound-guided intravenous line placement, and how moms with postpartum depression are being helped with a social media-based parenting program.

Physician Endorsed ‘Birds and the Bees’ Parent-teen Talk may Prove Effective 

New research shows that brief parent-targeted interventions in the primary care setting can increase communication between parents and their teens about sexual and alcohol behavior. This method may serve as an important strategy for parents to influence adolescent behaviors and health outcomes.

Artful Thinking, Teledermatology App, Genetic Mutations in Hearing Loss, Dr. Vinay Nadkarni

Art meets medicine and cell phones support skin diagnoses in this week’s roundup of research news at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as our latest headlines show science can find the best partners in unlikely places. Along with a creative study on the power of art observation for ophthalmology led by Gil Binenbaum, MD, MSCE, pediatric eye surgeon at CHOP, we also cover updates from researchers developing a teledermatology app, learn about novel pathways in the gene mutations that cause hearing loss, and congratulate Vinay Nadkarni, MD, on his latest honor from the American Heart Association.
