The Pediatric Asthma Initiative is a long-term project which aims to integrate environmental management of asthma into pediatric medical and nursing education and practice.
Project made possible by:
Making a Difference in Children's Lives
NEEF’s network of pediatric faculty champions are training other faculty members and students at medical and nursing schools and practitioners in their communities on environmental management of asthma. Within seven years, over 10,000 health care professionals have been trained and the tools of the initiative have been integrated into their clinical practice.
Under the leadership of the Initiative's steering committee, Environmental Management of Pediatric Asthma: Guidelines for Health Care Providers was developed. This peer-reviewed document includes competencies for environmental management of asthma, an environmental history form, and environmental intervention guidelines, which are built on best current practices and scientific literature. They are founded upon NAEPP Guidelines and are intended to be used by health care providers in conjunction with its clinical and pharmacological components, as part of a child's comprehensive asthma management plan.
