PROJECT IMPACT

A study for 7 - 11 year old children with asthma and their parents.

 

AN ASTHMA SHARED MANAGEMENT PILOT STUDY

PURPOSE

Improving Asthma Care Together (IMPACT) is a new health app designed to help parent-child teams better manage asthma together.  IMPACT was co-designed with parent-child teams and the IMPACT study team.  We incorporate symptom and asthma control monitoring with asthma shared management skill building.

Study Aims: 

  1. Refine the IMPACT app in collaboration with children with asthma and their parents during a series of usability sessions.

  2. Determine the feasibility, acceptability and initial efficacy of IMPACT on the primary outcomes (asthma responsibility, self-efficacy) and secondary outcomes (medication adherence, asthma control and quality of life). 

DESIGN

Aim 1 - We are using rapid cycle usability testing with parent-child dyads via think aloud sessions, surveys and semi-structured interviews to iteratively refine IMPACT, with a final program emerging for pilot testing in Aim 2.  

Aim 2 - We will pilot test IMPACT with 60 parent-child dyads in an eight-week pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT).  Data will be collected at baseline, throughout the intervention, post-intervention, and at an 8-week follow-up.
