A Pilot Study to Improve Preventive Asthma Care for Urban Adolescents

2014-07-23 21:09:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of this pilot study is to implement directly observed therapy with preventive asthma medications through a partnership with the school nurse (with input and direction from the primary care provider) to assure that the teen receives guideline based preventive medications, and provide a motivational interviewing intervention to help the teen transition to independence with their medical treatment plan. We hypothesize that this community-based pilot intervention will; 1) be feasible and acceptable among this population and among school personnel, and 2) yield reduced asthma morbidity (symptom-free days, absenteeism, and emergency room / urgent care use for asthma care). We anticipate that enhancing preventive healthcare for urban teens with asthma through partnerships with schools will yield improved health, prevention of suffering, decreased absenteeism from school, and reduced healthcare costs. This new method of preventive care delivery could be sustained within the school nursing system, and could be implemented in schools nationwide. Further, it could be applied to other chronic illnesses affecting disadvantaged populations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Procedures and programs that facilitate the development or skill acquisition in infants and young children who have disabilities, who are at risk for developing disabilities, or who are gifted. It includes programs that are designed to prevent handicapping conditions in infants and young children and family-centered programs designed to affect the functioning of infants and children with special needs.
