Overuse of Psychotropic Medications in Children and Youth in Foster Care
0.5 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is $5 for NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $10. Children in foster care are a vulnerable population with unmet health care needs complicated by a history of trauma, making providing comprehensive care difficult for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs). Care for this population is often transient and crisis centered, and an estimated 80% of children in foster care having one or more psychiatric diagnoses. Despite this rate of psychiatric diagnoses, children in foster care are prescribed psychotropic medications at a disproportionately high rate that is more than twice that of Medicaid controls. Stimulants are the most prescribed medication class followed by atypical anti-psychotic medications. A better understanding of the common mental health diagnoses of children in foster care, common medication indications and their monitoring, and available evidence-based treatments are imperative for APPs to care for this population. APPs need to be strong advocates for this vulnerable population to reduce the risk of psychotropic medication overuse and improve overall health outcomes.

IPV often starts early in adolescence and continues throughout an individual’s lifespan. IPV is defined as abuse or aggression occurring in the context of a romantic relationship that is perpetrated by a current or former partner. IPV victims often experience severe psychological trauma, physical injury, and even death. The direct recipient of the violence is often not the only individual impacted. Children are often peripheral victims of IPV. It is vital that pediatric health care providers, including pediatric nurse practitioners, recognize that IPV is indeed a pediatric health care crisis requiring strategies for both identification and intervention. This continuing education article will discuss IPV and its impact on children from conception to adolescence while exploring implications for practice. J Pediatr Health Care. (2023) 37, 333-346.
