Comparing Ways to Manage Asthma in African-American Children
Results from The ASIST Study support existing evidence that children with mild asthma can self-manage their condition by using medications when their symptoms occur. This contrasts with the traditional method of taking a medication daily, regardless of symptoms, and using an inhaler when symptoms arise. As reported in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, this study focused exclusively on African-American children, who have traditionally been underserved in research and have had worse asthma-related health outcomes than other children.
Peer-Led Classes Effective in Treating Substance Use Disorder, PTSD
A PCORI-funded project centered in a rural New Mexico area lacking mental health professionals examined whether using trained peers to lead group therapy classes for patients with substance use disorder or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) could be an effective alternative to using health professionals with master’s degrees. As reported in the Community Mental Health Journal, the group who received classes led by trained peers had as much improvement as the group who received classes from the professionals
