New Program Advances Health Equity for All Students with Mild Persistent Asthma

By NASN Inc posted 05-19-2023 11:00


Just over eight percent of school-age children have asthma, with poor, African American, and Hispanic children bearing a disproportionate burden of the cost that disease and disability exert on the individual and society. NASN’s new educational activity, Evidence-Based Decision Making - "As-Needed" Inhaled Corticosteroid Therapy for Pediatric Asthma, provides an overview of the prevalence of asthma among students, describes evidence-based treatment options for mild persistent asthma and how the NASN Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice™ guides the school nurse role in promoting student health equity, with asthma as a focus. 

Upon completion, participants will receive 1.0 NCPD contact hours, and there is no cost for NASN members. Learn more.
