EVIDENCE BASED ASTHMA MANAGEMENT WITH SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN
Asthma is a chronic disease that requires adequate management. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology [AAAAI], 2015), 185 children had asthma-related deaths nationwide in 2007. In North Carolina public schools, asthma is the leading chronic health condition. Asthma is the primary disease process affecting children and the leading cause of school absenteeism in school-age children. A program evaluation of the asthma practices at a middle school and an elementary school in eastern North Carolina was conducted to ensure the program was following evidence-based practice. The evaluation found the program follows best practice, but the parents need to become more involved in their child’s care to ensure adequate management.
