ABSTRACT Objective: To investigate whether high adherence to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) among disadvantaged urban public school children on public insurance with persistent asthma is achievable by having school nurses administer morning doses on each day that school is in session. Design/methods: This was a pilot prospective randomized clinical trial of home versus school nurse-administered ICS among children on Medicaid enrolled in grades K-8. The primary outcome was the proportion of… Expand
A Pilot School-Based Health Center Intervention to Improve Asthma Chronic Care in High-Poverty Schools.
TLDR
The pilot data suggest that a multifaceted intervention can be feasibly administered through school-based health centers in communities with health disparities, and spirometry detected advantages in the intervention group. Expand
School-based supervised therapy programs to improve asthma outcomes: current perspectives
TLDR
It is demonstrated that school-based supervised asthma therapy improves asthma outcomes in urban children with persistent asthma and schools are an ideal setting for implementation of asthma interventions for children and adolescents. Expand
Outcomes from a pilot patient-centered hospital-to-home transition program for children hospitalized with asthma
TLDR
These pilot data suggest that comprehensive care coordination initiated during the inpatient stay is feasible and acceptable and a larger trial is justified to determine if the intervention may reduce healthcare utilization for urban, minority children with asthma. Expand
Parental quality of life and self-efficacy in pediatric asthma
TLDR
It is suggested that improving parental confidence on when and how to use their child's asthma medications, particularly during an asthma attack, might be clinically meaningful in enhancing parent’s quality of life. Expand
Improving Asthma Outcomes in Children: From the Emergency Department and Into the Community
TLDR
It is imperative to identify barriers to asthma control in the ED while being mindful of transitions and care coordination, especially as the United States moves to value-based reimbursement of health care. Expand
Creation and validation of a citywide pediatric asthma registry for the District of Columbia.
TLDR
A population-level pediatric asthma registry captures more children and adolescents with asthma in DC then a BRFSS-derived estimate, and provides city-wide measures of asthma-related utilization. Expand
A Practical Approach to Severe Asthma in Children
TLDR
Evaluation of difficult‐to‐treat asthma includes an assessment of medication delivery, the home environment, and, if possible, the school and other frequented locations, the psychosocial situation, and comorbid conditions, and management of severe asthma refractory to traditional therapies. Expand
Digital health interventions in children with asthma
TLDR
A review of the published literature examining digital health interventions for paediatric asthma explores the most relevant issues affecting their implementation in practice and the associated evidence gaps, research limitations and future research perspectives. Expand
Severe asthma in children: Evaluation and management.
TLDR
Children with persistent symptoms and exacerbations despite correct inhaler technique and good medical adherence to standard Step 4 asthma therapies according to the guidelines should be referred to an asthma specialist with expertise in severe asthma. Expand

A Randomized Controlled Trial Using the School for Anti-inflammatory Therapy in Asthma
TLDR
Delivering ICS in school is associated with improved asthma control than when anti-inflammatory medication was delivered to children with asthma in a home-based setting, and both are superior when compared with a control, “community standard of care” group in which no additional medical intervention occurred.
