A Multifaceted Prompting Intervention for Urban Children With Asthma (PAIR-UP)
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
|Official Title:||A Multifaceted Prompting Intervention for Urban Children With Asthma|
- Symptom Free Days [ Time Frame: 2 month follow-up assessment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The primary outcome is asthma morbidity measured by the number of symptom-free asthma days (SFD) reported over 2 weeks at the 2-month follow-up assessment.
- Number of Children Who Received Guideline-based Asthma Care During the Intervention Visit. [ Time Frame: 2 week follow-up, and medical record review ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The number of children who received guideline-based asthma care (eg: inhaled steroid prescription, counseling for triggers, counseling for adherence) at the intervention visit based on parent interview at the 2-week follow-up and medical record review.
|Study Start Date:||October 2008|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2015|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
No Intervention: Standard Care
Parents of children in the standard care group will complete the baseline assessment, but no asthma prompt will be created for either the caregiver or provider, and no information regarding the interview will be shared with the provider. After the baseline assessment, the office visit will proceed according to usual care.
Experimental: Multifaceted Prompting Intervention
Multifaceted Prompting Intervention
Behavioral: Multifaceted Prompting Intervention MPI
Practices assigned to the MPI group will receive a simple prompt given to the provider at the time of the visit with information regarding the child's symptoms, medication use, environmental exposures, and recommendations for guideline-based preventive care. Practices will receive brief interactive seminars, resource guides, access to free asthma education programs, and practice-level feedback regarding their performance on key outcome measures.
Caregivers will receive a simple prompt, community resources, and a blank asthma action plan form.
