Care transition interventions for children with asthma in the emergency department

The emergency department (ED) is a critical point of identification and treatment for some of the most high-risk children with asthma. This review summarizes the evidence regarding care transition interventions originating in the ED for children with uncontrolled asthma, with a focus on care coordination and self-management education. Although many interventions on care transition for pediatric asthma have been tested, only a few were actually conducted in the ED setting.

103. Implementation of a health literacy- informed educational intervention for children and caregivers during hospitalization with asthma...Association of pediatric program directors, virtual fall annual meeting, 2020, 14-16 october, 2020

Asthma is the most prevalent chronic disease of children. Poor health literacy and ineffective teaching can result in poorer outcomes, increased Emergency Department visits, readmissions, and increased costs to the system. Our primary aims for this project are: 1) Increase the percent of families who receive multimodal asthma education (verbal, video, and handout) during hospitalization for asthma. 2) Decrease rates of inpatient hospital readmissions for asthmatics aged 2-18.

Impact of Self-Efficacy on The Quality of Life of Children With Asthma and Their Caregivers

Introduction: Health-related quality of life is an important outcome measurement in the monitoring of asthma control. Self-efficacy is a determinant of self-management behaviors that can contribute to the improvement of asthma control and quality of life. Our objective was to analyze the relationship between self-efficacy and quality of life in children with asthma and their caregivers.

Family caregivers' reported nonadherence to the controller medication of asthma in children in Casablanca (Morocco): Extent and associated factors

Objective: Recent statistics show a relatively high prevalence of asthma among Moroccan children and a weak control over their symptoms. To our knowledge, no research has been carried out to document adherence to the controller treatment in this population. This study aims 1) to assess the extent of children's nonadherence to the controller treatment of asthma in an urban region of Morocco as reported by a family caregiver, and 2) to identify the associated factors.

Examining the Relationships Among Child and Caregiver Asthma-Related Illness Representations, Medication Adherence, and Asthma Control in Black and Latino Children

Introduction: The Common Sense Model (CSM) posits that Illness Representations (IRs) are a patient's beliefs and expectations about an illness and that IRs guide health behavior (Leventhal, Brissette, & Leventhal, 2003). This study aimed to examine possible links between youth asthma IRs and disease-related outcomes ( controller medication adherence, asthma control, and lung function) in a sample of black and Latino youth with asthma.

Native Hawaiian Caregivers' Cultural Perspectives of Pediatric Asthma Management

Asthma remains the leading cause of chronic respiratory illness among Native Hawaiian children 0 to 17 years in Hawai'i. The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) established asthma management guidelines which includes medical assessment and monitoring, education in partnership with the caregiver, control of environmental triggers, and medication adherence (National Asthma Education Prevention Program [NAEPP], 2007). However, these guidelines do not consider the worldview, health beliefs, and cultural practices of caregiver, child, and family.

Barriers and Facilitators of Asthma Management as Experienced by African American Caregivers of Children with Asthma: An Integrative Review

African American children with asthma demonstrate significant health disparities and poor health outcomes. Understanding the burdens faced by parents and caregivers of children with asthma may be helpful to develop future interventions to address this disparity. The purpose of this integrative review was to reveal the barriers and facilitators of child asthma management experienced by African American caregivers. Whittemore and Knafl's (2005) method of integrative review was used to review 40 articles.
