Effectiveness of the Pelican Instrument in Medical Care

2014-08-27 03:14:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this project is to establish the effectiveness of implementation of a self-administered electronic asthma-specific quality of life instrument for childhood asthma in primary care and specialist care.

Description

Health related quality of life (HRQL) is important to the asthmatic child and if HRQL aspects are taken into account in daily care this could result in improved treatment satisfaction, compliance, asthma control and, ultimately, improved HRQL. The Pelican instrument we have developed has the essential features to be useful in daily care. In this study, the effectiveness of implementing the Pelican instrument in medical care is assessed. An intervention study with 9 months follow-up in primary and secondary care will be carried out.
