Applying the Physician Asthma Care Education (PACE) Program to Underserved Communities (APPUC) Materials

In 2010 RAMP provided support to the APPUC study team at UCSF, led by Dr. Michael Cabana, to develop an additional component for the PACE program that addresses cultural competency in provider-patient interactions. The goal is to improve physician awareness, ability, use of communication and therapeutic techniques for reducing the effects of asthma on children and their families.

Approximately 30 practitioner participants from the San Francisco Bay Area attended a seminar on the new cultural competency module as part of the PACE program. They were asked to complete a 10 minute survey and provide feedback on the format and content of the module. The seminar was then followed-up with internet surveys at 1, 6, and 12 months post intervention.
