ARCH Lab Publishes Multimorbidity Scoping Review

ARCH Lab alumni and current PhD candidate, Isabella Romano, recently published a scoping review titled “Physical-mental multimorbidity in children and youth: a scoping review” with the objective to systematically explore the breadth of physical-mental multimorbidity research in children and youth and to provide an overview of existing literature topics.

Included were 431 studies and 2 sources of grey literature. Results show that existing research emphasizes the co-occurrence of anxiety, mood and attention disorders among children with epilepsy, asthma and allergy and evidence consists of mostly small, observational studies that use cross-sectional data. More robust research within the field of child physical-mental multimorbidity is needed.
