Cluster analysis for family management of Chinese children with chronic kidney diseases

This study aimed to identify patterns of family management and its predictors based on the perception of the care experience from 339 caregivers of Chinese children with chronic kidney disease in multiple medical centers. Each caregiver completed the Family Management Measure questionnaires. Cluster analysis generated five patterns: effective (12.7%), impaired (14.5%), burdensome (21.2%), disorganized (27.7%), and concerning (23.9%). Multinomial logistic regression indicated that child's age, disease duration, family income, and paternal employment predicted cluster membership.

Family management affecting transition readiness and quality of life of Chinese children and young people with chronic diseases

Transition from pediatric to adult health care is a key milestone for children and young people (CYP) with chronic conditions. Family management (FM) and self-management are two important concepts during the process. This study aimed to explore the relationships between FM, self-management and transition readiness, and quality of life (QoL), and identify the potential CYP or family factors influencing the relationships. Data about FM, self-management and transition readiness, QoL, and various contextual factors were collected from 268 caregiver-child pairs.
