Review Explores Effectiveness of Home-Based Education and Environmental Measures

The May 2018 Journal of Asthma contained an integrative review exploring “the effectiveness of home-based education and environmental measures” and “specific indicators and tools to measure pediatric asthma control and program effectiveness.” Researchers reviewed a total of thirty articles and found that both home-based asthma education and environmental interventions were proven to be effective.
