Asthma QI and Clinical Research

Asthma is one of the most frequent causes of ED and hospital visits at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and the Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine division is actively involved in hospital efforts to improve asthma care in the hospital, ED, and outpatient clinic. Division faculty and staff participate on multidisciplinary asthma improvement efforts, and work in the community and schools to improve asthma outcomes through education of patients and families, primary caregivers, and other staff. Faculty and fellows also have the opportunity to participate in clinical and epidemiologic research in asthma.
