Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, 2004 December 31, 2004

Background: Improving asthma knowledge and self-management is a common focus of asthma educational programs, but most programs have had little influence on morbidity outcomes. We developed a novel multiple-component intervention that included the use of an asthma education video game intended to promote adoption of asthma self-management behaviors and appropriate asthma care.

Objective: To determine the effectiveness of an asthma education video game in reducing morbidity among high-risk, school-aged children with asthma.

Agreement Among Measures of Asthma Status: A Prospective Study of Low-Income Children with Moderate to Severe Asthma

PJ Sharek, ML Mayer, L Loewy, Thomas N. Robinson, RS Shames, DT Umetsu, David Bergman

Some of these measures may be redundant, whereas others may be complementary. Use of multiple outcomes may lead to ambiguous results, increased type I error rates, and be an inefficient use of resources including caregiver and patient/participant time and effort.
