How a top hospital helps patients manage their asthma

Learn how IMPACT DC, a program of Children's National Medical Center, helps providers more effectively educate patients and caregivers about living with asthma.

Providers often feel compelled to give patients all the information about their condition at once, but the best materials are short documents that patients can easily read and understand.

IMPACT DC, a program of Children's National Medical Center, adapted a nationally available one-page guide to help providers more effectively educate patients and caregivers about living with asthma. Watch the video to learn more, and download the guide and additional patient education materials below.

The program also developed an asthma tips and reminders handout so caregivers and patients leave primary care visits empowered instead of overwhelmed.

We've also developed a customizable template based on IMPACT DC's version so you can create your own education materials.
