PURPOSE: School aged children suffer significant asthma morbidity. School nurses(SNs) are uniquely able to identify children with poor asthma control. School administered controller therapy efficacy has been proven by Halterman Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2011;165(3):262-268. This study describes the growth of a School Based Asthma Therapy(SBAT) program modified to identify enrollees via SN and primary asthma provider referral and evaluates how successfully it identifies poorly controlled asthmatics and reduces disease morbidity.
