Use of Parent Connectors in First Episode Psychosis (FEP)

2019-07-18 10:31:11 | BioPortfolio


This study proposes to adapt an evidence based peer parent navigator (PPN) intervention, called Parent Connectors, in which trained and supervised PPNs deliver weekly telephone-based support for six to nine months to parents or caregivers of all newly enrolled youth or young adults (Y/YA) in FEP services. This PPN model will be used to enhance the delivery of Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) for Y/YA in New York's state program for FEP, called OnTrackNY (OTNY). This research project has potential to add value to the CSC model through the inclusion of a feasible, low burden intervention that may improve family participation in services and Y/YA outcomes. Using random assignment, this study will examine the feasibility and preliminary impact of an accelerator strategy—the inclusion of peer parent navigators or PPNs—in CSC teams.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An interval of care by a health care facility or provider for a specific medical problem or condition. It may be continuous or it may consist of a series of intervals marked by one or more brief separations from care, and can also identify the sequence of care (e.g., emergency, inpatient, outpatient), thus serving as one measure of health care provided.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).

Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.

Organization of medical and nursing care according to the degree of illness and care requirements in the hospital. The elements are intensive care, intermediate care, self-care, long-term care, and organized home care.
