Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Initiative Materials

The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) Guidelines focus its recommendations in four components or areas:

  • Assessment and Monitoring of Patients with Asthma;
  • Education about Asthma Self-Management;
  • Control of Environmental Exposures that Affect Asthma; and
  • Medications to Treat Asthma.

For the Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Initiative, the American Lung Association will track the coverage and any related barriers in seven different areas of asthma care, including, quick relief medications, controller medications, devices, allergy testing, allergen immunotherapy, home visits and interventions, and self-management education. The following materials provide a further look into the NAEPP Guidelines and the Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Initiative.
