Partners For Kids has an asthma coordinator that works with community providers by offering FREE virtual or in-person education and resources to community practices on the journey to improved asthma outcomes for patients, including reductions in asthma-related emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
Examples of education and resources include:
- Basics of asthma pathophysiology
- Symptoms and triggers of asthma
- Asthma diagnosis and pulmonary function testing
- Optimizing asthma medications
- Implementing asthma control tests
- Developing personalized asthma action plan
- Identifying and removing barriers to care
- Best practices for asthma follow-up
- Starting a comprehensive asthma program at your practice
Beginning in 2023, primary care providers that participate in an education session with the asthma coordinator will be considered as meeting the Partners For Kids network requirement. Interested in learning more? Contact Susan Mills, asthma coordinator, at Susan.Mills@NationwideChildrens.org.
