The Beat Asthma+ Project is a feasibility study, aiming to objectively assess a new approach to managing children aged 5-16 years with more difficult asthma in primary care. The Beat Asthma+ Pathway aims to improve outcomes for asthmatic children and ultimately prevent further asthma deaths.
Use of the Beat Asthma+ templates developed by CDRC Precision will enable early identification and management optimisation of children with ‘higher risk’ asthma. The pathway involves the delivery of an intensive education programme to children and their families over a 12 month period and will be implemented across 8 GP surgeries from Newcastle Gateshead, North Tyneside and South Tyneside CCG’s.
The Primary objective of the study is to demonstrate a reduction in the number of children presenting to hospital with an asthma exacerbation.
Secondary objectives include:
- Improvement in the percentage of patients having a personalised asthma action plan
- Reduction in the average number of reliever inhalers used per patient per year
- Improvement in the average number of preventer inhalers used per patient per year
- Reduction in the average number of courses of steroids used acutely per patient per year
We will also measure:
- Attendance and DNA rates to clinics
- QOL scores in patients pre and post intervention
