Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Clinical Tools for Pediatric CVD Risk Reduction and Asthma Treat

What are effective strategies and clinical decision support tools that can maximize pediatric care providers’ adoption of evidence-based recommendations for assessment and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors and/or asthma?

• Clinical recommendations and associated implementation tools are often incorporated into electronic medical records (EMRs). Currently there is no standard EMR format and therefore it is difficult... more »

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

THE RELEVANCE OF PREVENTION TRIALS

Prevention trials, implemented to reduce or delay progression to overt disease in a population at risk to the disease, are an important approach to health promotion.
Therapies shown to reduce disease severity in patients with a specific disease are obvious, but not the only, candidates for a prevention trial in populations at high risk for prevalent diseases (such as heart failure, diabetes, COPD, asthma in children).... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Linking Clinics and schools to improve asthma control and reduce health disparities

How can we improve communication between schools and clinicians in order to develop support systems for children with severe asthma with health disparities?

 

How can we eliminate inefficiency in medical communication to better serve children with severe asthma?

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Including subjects with both COPD and asthma in clinical trials

Subjects with both COPD and asthma are typically excluded from clinical trials, but they represent an important segment of the chronic airflow obstruction population. Defining this combination diagnosis is difficult, but requiring a significant smoking history (e.g. 10 pack years), chronic airflow obstruction (GOLD stage 2 or greater after bronchodilator), age > 45, and childhood onset of asthma could identify the relevant... more »
