Post date: Feb 18, 2018 8:17:41 AM
The objective of the trial was to evaluate the effect of the SB-TEAM program on asthma morbidity among urban children with persistent asthma.
The intervention consisted of supervised administration of preventive asthma medication at school as well as 3 school-based telemedicine visits to ensure appropriate assessment, preventive medication prescription, and follow-up care.
The SB-TEAM intervention significantly improved symptoms and reduced health care utilization among urban children with persistent asthma. This program could serve as a model for sustainable asthma care among school-aged children.
