Last Reviewed: June 2008

The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends home-based multi-trigger, multi-component interventions with an environmental focus for children and adolescents with asthma to improve overall quality of life and productivity. Specifically, these interventions can improve symptoms and reduce the number of missed school days. The interventions involve home visits by trained personnel and aim to reduce exposure to indoor asthma triggers through 2 or more activities. The activities may include assessment of, changes to, and education about the home environment, as well as non-environmental activities like:

  • Training to improve self-management
  • Social services and support
  • Coordinated care
