Characteristics of Asthma Self-Management Education Packages


In support of existing national asthma guidelines and a new, national framework to inform multisector activities to control asthma through evidence-based population-level interventions ("EXHALE"), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and one of their Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPC) will prepare a technical brief to provide a detailed characterization of selected, existing packages for asthma self-management education (AS-ME) and how they vary. This technical brief will thereby illuminate the current state of existing AS-ME packages and inform future investments in health services and research.

The Evidence-based Practice Center Program is starting an evidence report on asthma self-management packages. Please join the email list to stay up to date on the status of this report.
