  • SafER Teens

    PI: Maureen A. Walton, MPH, PhD , Rebecca M. Cunningham, MD

    The urban emergency department (ED) represents an underutilized venue for delivering violence interventions among adolescents. In the United States, there are over 100 million ED visits each year, of which at least 3 million are the result of violence. A recent study (the SafERteens Study) demonstrated the efficacy of an ED-based BI for violence on changing attitudes, self-efficacy, and reducing violent behaviors, peer victimization, and violence related consequences. From a public health standpoint, however, in order to reduce violence on a broader scale studies are needed to determine the effectiveness of the SafERteens behavioral intervention (BI) when delivered by clinical staff in real world ED settings. This study is designed to translate this efficacious BI for violence into a practical prevention program incorporated into ED clinical practice; with ED staff conducting the screening and BI. Specifically, we will determine the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of the SafERteens BI in two diverse and novel ED settings: Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta (GMH).

  • Comorbid Psychopathology - Teen Smoking Cessation

    PI: Richard A. Brown, PhD

    Adolescent cigarette smokers have disproportionately high rates of co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders, similar to those found in the adult smoking population. In the absence of intervention, adolescent smokers with co-morbid psychopathology are likely to become highly dependent, recalcitrant adult smokers who have extreme difficulty quitting smoking. The overall objective of this research program is to develop effective smoking cessation approaches for these high risk youth, and to advance the applicant's knowledge of the relationship between psychopathology and smoking cessation within the context of a treatment outcome study.

  • FOCUS Triage

    PI: Laurel L. Northouse, PhD, RN, FAAN

    Focus Triage tests if family dyads randomly assigned to either a brief or extensive family-based program of care (FOCUS Program) have better patient and caregiver outcomes than dyads randomly assigned to usual care. Outcomes being studied: appraisal factors (i.e., appraisal of illness/caregiving, uncertainty, hopelessness), coping resources (coping strategies, interpersonal relationships, self-efficacy), and quality of life domains (emotional, social, physical, and functional).This study also examines if patients’ risk for distress and other factors moderate the effect of the brief or extensive program on outcomes.
