The CHAMPS study took place through a multidisciplinary, collaborative effort between a Team of experts in the fields of asthma, child health, health policy, epidemiology, and health services.
The CHAMPS study evaluated the clinical- and cost-effectiveness of an intensive, evidence-based childhood asthma counseling and environmental intervention for pediatric asthma patients ages 5-12, with not-well/poorly controlled, moderate-to-severe persistent asthma.
The intervention is both clinic- and home-based and is patient-tailored, family-centered, and environmentally-focused.
As outlined in the diagram below, the CHAMPS intervention consists of three types of patient interactions:
- Patient identification
- Patient assessment visits
- Asthma counseling visits
