Asthma is a chronic, relapsing-remitting inflammatory airway disease that continues to increase in prevalence in the United States. When properly managed, patients with asthma experience less morbidity than those whose asthma is poorly controlled. Although the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has published guidelines regarding the evidence-based diagnosis and management of asthma, many primary care practices do not fully utilize these best-practices. The purpose of this project was to develop a system of standardized protocols and a reference guide to promote adherence to evidence-based guidelines in asthma management for the Champlain Valley Physician’s Hospital Family Medicine residents and faculty.
