Precision Health Approaches to Asthma Self-Management


Nurses are unfamiliar with the application of precision health in supporting adolescent patients’ self-management of asthma. The following video aims to narrow this practice gap by providing education about precision health approaches to asthma self-management in adolescents. 
 
 
Accreditation Statement: University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
 
Requirements for Successful Completion: To receive contact hours for this continuing education activity, the participant must complete the entire online module and complete and submit the evaluation form. Once the evaluation form has been submitted, a “Certificate of Successful Completion” will be awarded for 1.0 contact hours and will be available in your Learning Express account under "View/Print CE Credit".

Learning outcome: Registered nurses will report desire to change practice related to knowledge increase regarding empowering patients to use health technology to address chronic disease self-management. Focus will be on challenges specific to the aging population, youth, and underserved populations, exploring digital health research possibilities and limitations within the framework of ethical and legal boundaries.

Brief Bio : Over the past decade, Hyekyun Rhee, PhD, RN, PNP, FAAN, has established an internationally-recognized program of research developing innovative approaches to asthma self-management using technologies and peer dynamics to improve asthma outcomes in adolescents. Among these approaches include an award-winning wearable device that monitors symptoms around the clock. Data from the Automated Device for Asthma Monitoring (ADAM) can be recorded and downloaded to a smartphone or computer and analyzed for patterns of symptom frequency throughout the day, guiding medication or behavioral adjustments. The device has been recognized as a leading wearable innovation in health care and is being further developed by a start-up company, Health Care Originals. Rhee is also conducting an NIH-funded study evaluating a peer-led asthma self-management program for inner-city teens in Buffalo, Baltimore, and Memphis. The Peer-led Asthma Self-Management for Adolescents (PLASMA) program examines the effects of the intervention program in improving self-management and overall outcomes of asthma in teens. She has also been developing a clinical study of an interactive text messaging system to help teens and their parents with daily asthma management and facilitate parent-teen partnerships through information sharing in a timely manner.
