BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Asthma in adults remains a leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and increased health care costs. Asthma action plans (AAPs) have demonstrated improved health outcomes in this populace; however, AAPs continue to be underused by providers. This article aims to re-emphasize the importance of AAPs for adults and refresh providers on the effectiveness and methods to use this indispensable tool. METHODS: A literature search of MEDLINE, PubMed, Google Scholar, and CINAHL was performed, and subsequent findings were reported...

We aimed to determine whether the outpatient management of ED patients with asthma adheres to Australia's Asthma Consensus Guidelines. Adult patients, under treatment for asthma, were administered a validated questionnaire. Data on their outpatient management were collected and analysed descriptively. Of 51 patients, 14 smoked and 35 did not undergo regular GP review. Twenty-one patients had a good understanding of a written asthma action plan although only 15 owned one. Fourteen patients used no preventer medication...

OBJECTIVE: Asthma exacerbations and medication non-adherence are significant clinical problems during pregnancy. While asthma self-management education is effective, the number of education sessions required to maximise asthma management knowledge and inhaler technique and whether improvements persist postpartum, is unknown. This paper describes how asthma knowledge, skills, and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) use have changed over time. METHODS: Data were obtained from three cohorts of pregnant women with asthma recruited in Newcastle, Australia between 2004-2017 (N = 895)...

OBJECTIVES: Patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) represent a widespread model of healthcare transformation. Despite evidence that PCMHs can improve care quality, the mechanisms by which they improve outcomes are relatively unexamined. We aimed to assess the mechanisms linking certification as a Health Care Home (HCH), a statewide PCMH initiative, with asthma care quality and outcomes. We compared direct certification effects versus indirect clinical effects (via improved care process)...

Asthma management is in an intriguing phase, with acceptance of asthma as a heterogeneous condition with different phenotypes and underlying mechanisms and the potential for personalized asthma care, in parallel with increasing evidence about the population-level impact of basic strategies to increase access to medicines and improve inhaler technique and adherence. These changes have been facilitated by a more comprehensive view of evidence, including both randomized controlled trials with high internal validity and pragmatic and observational studies with high generalizability to patients in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Asthma is the most common chronic lung disease of childhood, affecting approximately 6 million children in the United States. Although asthma cannot be cured, most of the time, asthma symptoms can be controlled by avoiding or reducing exposure to asthma triggers (allergens and irritants) and by following recommendations for asthma education and appropriate medical care. METHODS: CDC analyzed asthma data from the 2001-2016 National Health Interview Survey for children aged 0-17 years to examine trends and demographic differences in health outcomes and health care use...

REVIEW

One of the most important causes of asthma morbidity, hospital admissions, and death is non-adherence to prescribed therapy. It is generally assumed that adherence rates can be increased with asthma education, although well conducted studies have not always supported this assumption. Education can be achieved, or can fail, in many ways and no two patients have the same needs or perceived needs. In order to better understand what children with asthma and their parents or caregivers would desire as support from their physician providers, we conducted a survey of nearly 1000 parents of asthmatic children affiliated with the Asthma and Allergy Network...

BACKGROUND: Long-term conditions (LTCs) in children require a high level of self-management. Written action plans (WAPs) have been advocated to guide decision-making and support self-management but there is uncertainty about how WAPs "work" and what aspects are important for successful implementation. OBJECTIVE: To review and synthesize existing qualitative evidence about the design and use of WAPs across childhood LTCs. METHOD: We undertook a systematic search of the literature (Medline, EMBASE, CiNAHL, PsycInfo, Web of science) from inception to May 2015; critically appraised included studies; and synthesized the findings, drawing on normalisation process theory...
