Pilot study of a brief provider and EMR-based intervention for overweight teens with asthma.
The authors piloted an electronic medical record-based tailored discussion guide (TDG) and a brief provider training to address weight management in overweight teens with asthma. They observed modest improvements in patient-reported asthma outcomes and health behaviors. They found strong evidence that the TDG supports provider discussion of weight and asthma to create a more patient-centered conversation from the perspective of participating teens. They recommended addressing challenges to recruitment and clinic adaptation prior to advancing to a full-scale trial.
