This is a multi-county randomized controlled trial of the Fostering Healthy Futures (FHF) preventive intervention program (consisting of mentoring and skills groups) with 256 maltreated preadolescent youth in out-of-home care. It is hypothesized that participation in the FHF program will result in better functioning in cognitive, social, and behavioral domains, and that these gains will result in improved mental health functioning, quality of life, and reductions in problem be...
This study evaluated the impact of the three-year Healthy Futures program on teen sexual behaviors in three Massachusetts cities.
The purpose of this study is to develop, standardize and provide a preliminary test of a novel intervention for preadolescent maltreated youth in out-of-home care. It is hypothesized that the preventive intervention, which is known as Fostering Healthy Futures (FHF) and which consists of therapeutic skills groups and mentoring, will improve mental health, social, academic and behavioral functioning and reduce youths' initiation of, and participation in, problem behaviors.

The purpose of this project is to test the effectiveness of a novel school-based intervention targeting executive function skills, including flexibility and planning, in college-track, transition-age youth with ASD. Evaluating treatment change through behavior and brain activity provides important information on how the treatment works and who will best benefit from it.
This study seeks to quantify the impact of recommended mental health care coordination practices on patient experiences of care, (i.e. satisfaction, stigma, quality of mental health care), evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of the intervention (i.e. care coordination, timing, unmet needs), and assess mental health outcomes (i.e. symptoms and functioning, involvement with law enforcement/juvenile justice system; rates of substance use /abuse, service utilization) in a pop...
Latino children experience higher rates of obesity compared to non-Hispanic white children, especially in low-income communities. Optimal feeding strategies in early life, avoidance of screen time and longer sleep duration may lower the risk of obesity. Family financial hardship is also associated with short- and long-term health risks, including behavioral and mental health problems, and toxic stress which contributes to elevated risk of common chronic conditions over the life...
The purpose of the study is whether the provision of tuberculosis care using volunteer community health workers or self-administered treatment for 7 months is equally effective with the existing 8 months of TB care in public health facilities by health workers. Patient care by volunteer community health workers and 7 months of self-administered treatment are more patient-convenient delivery options than the ongoing TB care in health facility.
Managed care systems rely on primary care providers as gatekeepers to make sensible decisions regarding the use of expensive health care resources. While this model has some intuitive appeal in terms of its potential for decreasing health care costs, it may not be applicable in VA medical centers, where patients are often medically complex and socioeconomically vulnerable. Thus, other strategies to integrate generalist and specialist care are required.
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs in response to an extreme traumatic stressor. It is estimated that as many as 1 million VA patients who were exposed to combat may have PTSD. VA patients with PTSD recently have been designated as a �Special Emphasis� population for which health care resources are allocated at approximately 14 times those allocated to patients without such chronic, complex, and intensive health care needs (i.e., �Basic Care� groups). Despite ...
This study supports and promotes work well-being of nursing personnel from the perspective of foot health in health care organizations. Half of the participants will receive an electronic foot health education program to improve their foot self-care knowledge, while the other will receive anything. The outcomes of this project include recommendations and tested educational program to occupational health care for improving foot health of nurses.
This study will determine if a version of the bipolar care model adapted for a nonresearch audience can improve patient health and correct use of the model in community-based mental health care sites.
Our longitudinal aim is to reduce childhood obesity using our two-pronged intervention program, which includes healthy food choices and increased physical activity initiated during pregnancy and re-instated in the early period after delivery for overweight and obese women. We will accomplish this with our family-based Nutrition and Exercise Lifestyle Intervention Program (NELIP) to promote healthy family living. An intervention targeting school-aged children on the importance o...
The overarching aim of this study is to evaluate whether telehealth leads to better mental health outcomes and decreased use of acute and crisis-based mental health care services by randomly assigning 300 people with serious mental illness (SMI) and psychiatric instability receiving services at 1 of 2 community mental health centers (CMHCs), each of which offers integrated behavioral and primary health care, to either Health Home Usual Care alone or telehealth plus Health Home ...
The present study focuses on the quality of care and how the health executives can bring it to a central place in their management. A training-action has been set-up at the Health Executive training institute (University Hospital Grenoble) to improve care quality. Reports prepared by students (tutored projects) related to operational diagnosis and action plans about care quality improvement are given to health executives. The objective is to evaluate how the health executive wi...
Special opportunities exist in vulnerable populations with chronic conditions to better understand what life course factors can facilitate attainment of optimal health and development. One such opportunity arises in the life of an adolescent or young adult when they transition their care from pediatric to adult health providers and systems, referred to as "health care transition". Experts generally agree that health care transition is often unsuccessful and associated with a va...
Health insurance is important for children. Public insurance programs are available to many children, but some families report being confused about how to get and keep this insurance. Community Health Centers (CHCs) can help families get and keep health insurance for their children. The investigators will work with families, policy makers, and community health care providers and staff to develop and test new computer health information technology (IT) tools to help healt...
This study is the first to evaluate a unique integrated care model for COPD which uses a validated clinical frailty indicator to set care goals and guide health care in hospital and in the community. The impact of this care model on patient reported outcomes, costs, and health care utilization will inform further health system re-design for patients with COPD and other chronic diseases.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of a Guided Care nurse on the quality of the health and well-being of the frail elderly.
