Asthma Awareness Month: Inclusion of National Guidelines into Clinical Practice

Date: 05/13/24

In support of Asthma Awareness Month, Superior HealthPlan would like to share the American Lung Association's advocacy for the inclusion of National Asthma Guidelines into Clinical Practice. Asthma affects more than 26 million Americans, including 5.5 million children. It's a condition that leads to millions of emergency department visits and incurs billions of healthcare costs yearly. This initiative provides crucial resources for asthma self-management education programs, evidence-based quality improvement initiatives, and essential resources for developing effective asthma policies.

The American Lung Association recommends the following strategies to expand asthma knowledge, implement evidenced-based asthma interventions into practice and educate patients on available asthma or lung health resources.
