Si je me saisis assez peu du sujet, parce que certains s'y consacrent et le font bien, cet article me permet ce matin d'appeler l'attention sur la situation des #enfants et #adolescents qui endurent les #séquelles de leur infection par le #sarscov2.
Plus encore que pour les adultes, leur parole (quand bien même elle est soutenue par celles de leurs parents - et a fortiori d'ailleurs si l'accompagnant est une ♀️) est parfois délégitimée et la réalité de leurs symptômes niée par certains soignants. Voire mise sur le compte
de troubles psychiatriques.
Et ce malgré la publication, un peu plus tardive que celle du corpus général, des recommandations de la @HAS_sante à ce sujet. (Merci à celles qui dans les coulisses ont donné de leur temps et énergie pour parvenir à cela).…

Little is known about the protection following prior infection with different #SARS2 variants, #COVID19 vaccination, and a combination of the two (hybrid immunity) in #adolescents. 1/
A new study from #England estimated protection following previous infection and vaccination against symptomatic PCR-confirmed delta & omicron (BA.1 or BA.2) variants in 11-17-year-olds using a test-negative case-control design. 2/
In unvaccinated adolescents, prior infection with WT, Alpha or Delta provided greater protection against subsequent Delta infection than subsequent Omicron; prior omicron infection provided the highest protection against omicron reinfection 3/ Image

#Suicide by Clinic-Referred #Transgender #Adolescents in the United Kingdom. Great piece here urging us to reflect upon & think about, if evidence based #science is still your thing. Biggs (2022) conclusion asks us to question #medical responsibility.…
How do we know if we are acting responsibly when we are offering ‘information’? What information are we offering? What if that information is on risk for #selfharm & #suicide? As a part of our daily #dutyofcare part of the #safeguarding process?
What about if that information is relied upon when we obtain parental consent for intervention with #children & #adolescents? What if that information isn’t true, is inaccurate, exaggerated, inflated, distorted? #science

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

We reviewed 14 studies of persisting symptoms following #COVID19 in #children & #adolescents

Most had major limitations and should be interpreted with caution.

True risk is likely to be nearer 1 in 100 than often quoted 1 in 7.

#medpeds #IDTwitter

(Long) 🧵1/n
The 14 studies involved 19,426 children & adolescents.

Common persistent symptoms reported 4-12 weeks after acute #COVID19 were:

•sleep disturbance
•concentration difficulties
•abdominal pain.

Symptoms rarely lasted more than 12 weeks.

Seguint el nostre principi de #CompartimConeixement hem publicat l’Eina de cocreació d’espais lúdics amb infants i adolescents. Objectius: contribuir a fer més sistemàtica la #ParticipacióInfància i millorar l’#espaipúblic per una #CiutatJugable

T’ho expliquem en aquest fil 👇
La guia neix de les experiències pilot de cocreació amb infants del Parc Central de @Bcn_NouBarris i el Parc de la Pegaso a @BCN_SantAndreu: 170 nois/es de 5 escoles i 1 esplai van aportar coneixement i experiència a l'equip d'arquitectes per fer el disseny actual #Ciutatjugable
La guia inclou la descripció metodològica de les sessions, els materials necessaris, l'explicació dels rols que han d'assumir els actors implicats i orientacions per tal que la cocreació sigui un èxit. Tot a punt per començar a cocrear!
