School-Based Telemedicine Enhanced Asthma Management (SB-TEAM)
The SB-TEAM program builds on the School-Based Asthma Therapy (SBAT) Trial and the School-Based Preventive Asthma Care Technology (SB-PACT) study with a new focus on directly observed therapy of preventive medications, and ongoing monitoring and tailoring of therapy using telemedicine to facilitate guideline-based asthma care for children.
School-Based Asthma Care for Teens (SB-ACT)
In an attempt to ameliorate disproportionately high asthma morbidity and mortality rates among low income minority adolescents, the School-Based Asthma Care for Teens (SB-ACT) program partners with the Rochester City School District to provide Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) of preventive asthma medications and Motivational Interviewing (MI) counseling sessions in schools. These components, in combination, are designed to promote optimal medication adherence and enhance preventive asthma care for inner city teenagers.
The TEAM-ED study focuses on reducing asthma-related pediatric emergency room visits by using telemedicine to link children back to their primary care provider for preventive asthma care.
