ECHO-Chicago: Complex Pediatric Asthma

January 19, 2023 to April 6, 2023
This activity will increase the use of EXHALE strategies for pediatric asthma management in underserved communities throughout Chicago. Specialist teams from UChicago Medicine will lead curriculum-driven, case-based iterative training through virtual rounds delivered via Zoom on the National Asthma Education Prevention Program (NAEPP) Expert Panel Report 3, the 2020 Focused Updates to the Asthma Management Guidelines: A Report from the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Coordinating Committee Expert Panel Working Group, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) EXHALE Technical Package. Primary care providers working at community health clinics will learn best practices and increase their confidence in treating their most challenging pediatric patient cases. The curriculum and integrated materials will support guidelines-based medical care and align with EXHALE strategies.
