Child Behavior clinical trials at UCSF
2 research studies open to eligible people
Child behavior is how kids act and interact with the world around them. At UCSF, there are trials to help families with children who have had liver transplants and to support moms suffering from depression. The trials use a smartphone app or counseling to collect information and help families improve their child's well-being.
Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up and Depression Treatment
open to eligible females ages 2 years and up
Maternal depression influences the development of children's behavior problems and vice versa; however most interventions singularly address maternal depression or children's behavior problems rather than both. This project assesses the efficacy of an intervention that treats both mothers and children in an integrated manner. Effects are expected to disrupt the reciprocal relations that perpetuate maternal and child mental health problems over time.

Starzl Network Patient Reported Outcomes
open to eligible people ages 8-20
This study uses a smartphone application/web interface (RealTime Clinic; RTC) to collect patient and parent reports of a pediatric liver transplant recipient's quality of life (QOL), and examines the extent to which QOL evaluations can be integrated into care with the help of the application. The QOL measure that is used in this study is the Pediatric Liver Transplant Quality of Life (PeLTQL) questionnaire. Utilization, effectiveness, and efficiency data are evaluated. Hypotheses are fully described in the protocol. The primary hypothesis is that 80% of recruited child-proxy dyads will have at least one RTC-enabled PeLTQL score at 12 months. Other hypotheses look at implementation metrics and patient outcomes.
