Description

Asthma is the most common pediatric illness affecting over 6 million children in the United States. Children with asthma have more frequent office visits and hospitalizations compared to adults. Despite advances in therapies, asthma still has a significant impact on the healthcare system. Regardless of the setting, pharmacists are uniquely equipped with an intimate knowledge of medications. Using this knowledge, they can provide education to patients at various points throughout the healthcare system from hospitalization to office visits to point of pick up at the pharmacy. The goal of this paper is to equip the pharmacist with the necessary knowledge to provide education to these patients, in a variety of practice settings including community pharmacies, ambulatory care settings, and during transitions in care.
