Integrative Pediatrics

A section of Children (ISSN 2227-9067).

Section Information

The Integrative Pediatrics Section accepts articles related to the development and application of the field of evidence-based integrative medicine in children and adolescents with a wide range of medical conditions and in preventive care. The Section also welcomes submissions on clinician health, wellness, and resilience which is closely related to patient outcomes.

Articles can focus on therapy, supportive care, long-term outcomes/survivorship, epidemiology and disease prevention, and the economic impact of various diseases (both on the patient and the health care system). Submissions may also focus broadly on population-based health issues that impact children, and can include epidemiology, prevention, mitigation and treatment of disease. All study types with rigorous methodology and analyses are welcome, and novel commentaries with relevance to the emerging field of integrative pediatrics will also be considered. Case reports will only be considered if they report on a novel finding with important clinical implications.

Periodic calls for submissions to Special Editions allow deeper exploration of topics, for example a 2017 edition focused on the use of mind–body medicine in children and adolescents.
