Abstract PURPOSE: The purpose of this project was to develop and implement an evidence-based asthma education brochure for parents of pediatric asthma patients. DESIGN AND METHODS: The asthma patients were 4-12 years old. The number of office sick visits, emergency room visits, and hospitalizations related to asthma were evaluated post-education, and then compared with the previous months. RESULTS: Although there were no statistically significant results, there were notable trends that apply to asthma practice. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: As a result of the project, there were positive changes noted within the pediatric clinic related to asthma education, and additional suggestions for future opportunities were made. © 2012, Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
