Literature Review: Special Needs problem for Healthcare

This “Ten Problems for Healthcare in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. delivery,
  2. access,
  3. economics,
  4. digital,
  5. artificial intelligence,
  6. pharma,
  7. regulation,
  8. special needs,
  9. wellbeing,
  10. workforce.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

8 Special Needs

THE PROBLEM — The transition from pediatric to adult healthcare is a vulnerable time, especially for those with chronic conditions. The maltreatment of children with special healthcare needs is a significant public health issue. Equitable access to services that promote health and wellbeing is an important component of social justice.

CONCLUSIONS — The majority of practicing providers in the United States do not feel prepared to help patients through health care transition. Russia is one of the few countries that provide state funding for agencies of additional education for children with special needs. Medical personnel play a key role in the identification and treatment of maltreated children with special healthcare needs. Autism is becoming more common and Asperger syndrome is now included in the category of autism spectrum disorder, with possible implications for coverage of care. A rapidly ageing population with increasing prevalence of chronic disease presents policymakers the urgent task of tailoring healthcare services to optimally meet changing needs. Development of at-home palliative services in the Sweden community is increasing. Efforts directed towards improving women’s health and wellbeing should include perspectives and suggestions of diverse groups of women from the community. Supporting LGBTQ parents’ empowerment in maternity and child healthcare requires policies and structures that recognize and acknowledge multiple family structures and parenting roles. The debate around the sustainability of health systems for rare diseases in Europe is very articulate and relevant. Considering that COVID-19 is a highly communicable disease, tele-dentistry is ideal for the remote patient management, contributing to the slowdown of the virus transmission.
