Asthma is a global health problem that calls for international nursing research collaborations. Despite advances in the treatment of asthma, uncontrolled and poorly controlled asthma continue to interfere with learning and school attendance for many youth with asthma. Little is known about the critical roles that school nurses play in coordinating and managing asthma care. The conceptual framework for the study is family-centered care coordination, in which youth and family strengths, input, and developmental needs are viewed as central to care coordination as a collaborative process. This exploratory, descriptive pilot study aims to (a) compare the roles of school nurses who are coordinating and managing asthma care with younger (ages 10-14) and older (ages 15-18) adolescents in St. Paul, MN and Iceland and (b) to identify the nurses' recommendations for improving asthma care coordination. Each nurse completes a brief, self-report background questionnaire and participates in a focus group with 4 to 6 school nurses. Three focus groups will be conducted in each country (two with school nurses who work with younger adolescents and one with older adolescents). Audiotaped focus group sessions will be transcribed verbatim. Descriptive content analytic techniques will be used to systematically identify and categorize school nurses' role responsibilities, roles of other school staff in managing asthma at school, and recommendations for resources and improving care for youth in schools. Within and across focus group comparisons of findings by age cohorts of students served and country will be made. Descriptive statistics will be used to compare and summarize findings by country from the demographic questionnaire. This international nursing research partnership will contribute to the delineation of the school nurse role in asthma care coordination and strategies for improving asthma care among adolescents within the context of different types of school and health care systems.
