Jun 01, 2018
  • Description

While individuals with asthma receive a majority of needed care in a clinical setting, evidence-based guidelines from the National Asthma Education Prevention Program (NAEPP) recommend that homebased asthma interventions, including environmental assessments and self-management education, be delivered in conjunction with clinical care. Communityhealth workers (CHWs) are especially well equipped to deliver these home-based asthma services.
