The primary goal of this study is that the combination of a computerized asthma reminder system with implementation of an guideline will increase utilization and adherence of guideline-driven care, leading to improved patient outcomes. Hypothesis: An automatic, computerized reminder system for detecting asthma patients in the pediatric ED will increase guideline adherence compared to paper-based guideline. The specific aims of the study are: Aim 1: Develop, implement, ...
Asthma is a respiratory condition that affects millions of children. It can be controlled, however, with the proper medications and treatment. AsthmaNet, an internet-based asthma management system, aims to improve the asthma care of children by providing their parents and doctors with appropriate tools and feedback related to asthma management. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of AsthmaNet at improving quality of care and controlling asthma symptoms in...
It is important for people with asthma to become involved in their asthma care and management. This study will evaluate an interactive Web site that provides tailored feedback and information to asthma patients and encourages them to ask their doctor specific questions about their asthma care.
To assess the separate and interactive effects of asthma severity, subspecialty practice variation, asthma-related psychosocial variables, and other factors on asthma outcomes, including asthma-specific quality of life and activity limitations, health care utilization for asthma, and direct and indirect costs of asthma.
This project is investigating whether application of a telecommunications system to the care of adult patients with asthma will improve self-management by enhancing compliance with preventive medication regimens and fostering the use of peak-flow-based action plans.
Asthma is a health problem that afflicts many Canadians. Better methods are needed to provide primary care physicians with ways of implementing current guidelines into regular practice for optimal disease management. This study will test the benefits of providing computer-based decision-support for asthma to primary care physicians, with links to home monitoring for their patients. To add value and to ensure regular use for the physician for all of his/her patients, these compu...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of the Alair System for the treatment of asthma. This will be a multicenter, randomized controlled study comparing the effects of treatment with the Alair System to standard drug therapy. One-hundred and ten subjects will be randomized 1:1 to either the Alair Group (Medical management + Alair treatment),or Control Group (Medical management only).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Alair System for the treatment of severe refractory asthma. This will be a multicenter, randomized controlled study comparing the effects of treatment with the Alair System to standard drug therapy in patients with severe asthma refractory to standard medication therapy. A total of 30 subjects will be randomized 1:1 to the Alair Group (Medical management + Alair Treatment) OR the Control Group (Medical man...
The Asthma Action at Erie Trial compares the current best practice in asthma self-management education (certified asthma educator services) to an integrated community health worker (CHW) home intervention in which the real-life challenges of patients and the health care system are taken fully into account. This trial will provide clarity as to the expected effect size, cost savings, and resources needed to integrate asthma CHWs into clinical practice.
To implement and evaluate a comprehensive asthma education and prevention program in all 54 public elementary schools in the predominantly minority Birmingham, Alabama school system.
The potential benefits of this research to public health include improved understanding of cultural factors in pediatric asthma self-management, improved self-management skills for children, and better asthma management skills for their parents. This could result in eased suffering and improved quality of life for millions of children and their families, and also reduce the economic burden borne by society in the forms of medical expenditures and lost productivity.
This study compares an asthma self-management intervention, delivered to the family and tailored to their needs and cultural beliefs, to standard asthma education in high-risk Puerto Rican children in elementary school. The primary outcomes are asthma medication adherence and trigger reduction.
To test the effectiveness of school-based asthma education interventions, community-based asthma health workers' programs and the combination of these on asthmatic children. Also, to examine the separate and combined impact of asthma interventions designed to address problems associated with effective asthma self-management amd difficulties in establishing and maintaining continuity of medical care.
Asthma among low-income, minority children remains a prime example of health disparities that are resistant to change. Controlled demonstrations of reductions in disproportionate hospital or emergency care are limited. We performed a controlled clinical trial of an "Asthma Coach" to reduce hospitalizations among low-income, African American children.
The purpose of this study is to test two asthma management programs: (a) a school-based curriculum to empower middle school students to manage their asthma and (b) a parent training curriculum to teach childrearing skills that support the youths' growing autonomy and need to self-manage their disease.
This project will evaluate the effectiveness of a Head Start-based early intervention for designed to improve asthma management skill and practices of parents, pre-school children and Head Start staff.
To evaluate three adherence promoting interventions within the Childhood Asthma Management Program (CAMP), an eight center clinical trial that compared pediatric asthma therapies in children five to twelve years old.
The purpose of this study is to determine if teaching children with asthma how to talk to their doctor about controlling their asthma including symptom frequency in an asthma diary and medication use techniques, will result in less symptom and missed school days, fewer emergency room visits and reduce the cost of asthma health care.
Disease management is used to manage patients who have asthma and who are enrolled in a managed care health plan. To understand the effect of disease management on asthma severity and utilization, the investigators at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, will review data from a Medicaid Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) to determine the number of health plan members with different asthma severities and what their outcomes are. This will help us to improve the service pro...
Accordingly, the new update of the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines 2006 is based on the control of the disease and attempts to quantify and graduate the level of control by using a classification of asthmatic subjects into controlled,partly controlled and uncontrolled groups. Achieving and maintaining optimal asthma control is a major goal of asthma management. Although the results of clinical trials advocate that asthma control can be reached in most pati...
To evaluate current and novel therapies and management strategies for children with asthma. The emphasis is on clinical trials that help identify optimal therapy for children with different asthma phenotypes, genotypes, and ethnic backgrounds and children at different developmental stages.
The purpose of this study is to determine if a simple blood test can help in disease management, particularly asthma. This will be researched by looking at certain features of the blood and to compare asthmatics without allergies to those that have allergy-induced asthma.
To evaluate a community organization approach to promoting asthma management in four neighborhoods in St. Louis with predominantly low income, Black populations.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate current and novel therapies and management strategies for children with asthma. The emphasis is on clinical trials that help identify optimal therapy for children with different asthma phenotypes, genotypes, and ethnic backgrounds and children at different developmental stages.
The investigators propose to test the hypothesis that a home-based asthma intervention, the Wee Wheezers program, delivered by the Community Health Workers and tailored to the needs of the investigators community, will improve anti-inflammatory medication adherence, parental asthma knowledge and management behaviors, which in turn will reduce asthma morbidity (defined as days with asthma symptoms) and health care utilization (defined as asthma-related Emergency Department visit...
