One of the main focus areas of the NYS Prevention Agenda is increasing access to high quality chronic disease preventive care and management in both clinical and community settings. By doing this, the goal is to reduce asthma emergency department visit rates by 10% across all age groups. A key strategy for achieving this goal is expanding access to guideline-concordant, high-quality asthma care. This webinar is intended to reach medical providers, asthma educators and public health professionals, particularly those in school based health centers, to learn about strategies for translating the National Asthma Education Prevention Program (NAEPP) Expert Panel Report (EPR-3): Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma into practice in the school-based health center setting. 

Learning Objectives
After viewing this presentation participants will be able to:

  • Identify the four components of the NAEPP Guidelines;
  • Recall at least three of the six priority key messages of the NAEPP Guidelines; and
  • State at least two strategies to apply the NAEPP Guidelines to practice in the school-based health center setting.
