Research Priorities for Children and Youth

Children face different issues during distinct developmental periods. Several problems, such as obesity, mental health issues, suicide, and firearm injuries, have reached concerning levels. It is crucial to prioritize research agendas based on children's existing problems. There may be substantial challenges to developing and implementing high-quality, practice-changing research. This presentation emphasizes epidemiology, risk factors, and strategies to address these current childhood problems. These research priorities can inform future interventions and potentially improve children's and youth's lives. 229
