The year of 2015 was a fruitful year in the field of chronic diseases, exercise, and physical activity in childhood. Many interesting papers came out on this topic. Exercise testing and prescription in children with chronic disease and disability is an increasingly studied area in which many disciplines are involved including pediatric physical therapy, medicine, nursing, physical education, and exercise physiology. This multidisciplinary aspect is reflected in the journals in which my highlighted publications (below) were published. Because no single discipline has the ownership of exercise testing and prescription and because different disciplines use different jargon, it is difficult to have the scientific knowledge translated to the clinic. A few years ago we initiated the Pediatric Exercise Medicine Network (PEMNet) to close this knowledge translation gap.
