Title of Collaborative Activity:

Health Behavior in School-Aged Children, 2009-2010 Survey (HBSC) including NEXT as an option

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This IAA is to fund the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Pediatric Practice Based Research Network (PBRN) initiative. The purpose of this IAA is to fund, oversee, and manage a research grant on a topic of mutual interest to the agencies. The funds will be used to conduct comparative effectiveness research (CER) and epidemiologic assessments of the use of selected psychotropic medications and the most commonly prescribed asthma medications in pediatric populations, as well as possible associations between these medications and side effects in this population in an existing electronic health record (EHR) based pediatric practice-based research network. This agreement provides needed supplemental funding and HRSA staff experience to conduct the U.S. survey component according to the HBSC study protocol developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization. The NEXT study was included as an option in fy2012. NEXT is a 7-year longitudinal assessment of a representative sample of U.S. adolescent and young adults, starting when they are in in 10th grade. This research initiative involves collaboration with the Best Pharmaceuticals Act for Children.
