Abstract

Background: A pediatric documentation form on psychosocial issues has been developed, which enables pediatricians to assess the need for psychosocial support of families with small children in early detection screening visits. The primary goal of this study was to evaluate the practical use of this pediatric documentation form by resident pediatricians. Materials and methods: Families who presented their 6-month-old baby for a routine check-up visit (U5) at the participating resident pediatric practices were the target group. A total of 385 familes were assessed with the pediatric documentation form by 28 pediatricians in Freiburg and Munich in Germany. Some of these families (n = 161) were subsequently questioned about the psychosocial stress in a detailed research interview. Results: Among the 385 families there were 51 cases (13.2 %) in which pediatricians had documented psychosocial problems. The interviewers were in accordance for almost two thirds of the families who had been seen as psychosocially stressed by pediatricians. For those families who had been evaluated as not being affected by psychosocial stress by pediatricians, the interviewers made the same evaluation in 72 %. Discussion: Taking into account the large differences in both settings used in this study (i.e. pediatric practice and homes of the families) with respect to observation, evaluation and the possibility to address particular psychosocial stressors, the correspondence of the pediatric assessment and that made in the interview can be evaluated as good.
