Abstract:
Poster Presentation: One of the most successful programs we provide is our Community Health Asthma Management Program (CHAMP). The CHAMP program provided to the children in our service area offers 3 site visits - one to the home, one to the school and one to the sport event or other activity the child might be involved in. Follow-up visits are provided as needed. The program goals are: 1) to identify and eliminate the triggers for asthma, 2) to educate the child and parents on the signs of an asthma attack, 3) to educate the child and parent on the use of the tools available and medications to treat an attack early, and 4) to prevent ED hospital admissions. Innovative parts to this program include: 1) giving school nurses packets of tools for resources, 2) giving school nurses pulse oximeters so that they can identify a child in trouble, and 3) delivering asthma action plans for all the children in the program to the school nurses. These plans are signed by the pediatricians advocating for children with asthma who are living in subsidized housing where there is mold and evidence of water (triggers for asthma). Home assessments along with education on the disease and effective treatments are provided to parents and caregivers. The school nurses are educated regarding risks for the asthma patient and how to provide safe and effective prevention and intervention. As required by the state, each child has an Asthma Action Plan that is signed by their physician and filed at the school. In one case example, our nurse identified that mold was harboring in a ceiling tile in the classroom. She advocated for the child and asked that the tile be removed and the source of the mold. Another nurse found mold in water lines in subsidized housing where a child was living. She successfully advocated for the single mother and child to have them moved to a dry unit which would pose less risk for the child. The outcomes for this program speak to its success. There have been 302 children visited...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
