Process and Outcomes of School Nurse Case Management for Students with Asthma
Engelke, Martha Keehner; Swanson, Melvin; Guttu, Martha
Journal of School Nursing, v30 n3 p196-205 Jun 2014
There have been many studies that have examined the impact of school-based asthma programs on students with asthma. However, most studies do not provide adequate elaboration on the components of the program. Therefore, replication of these programs is difficult. This study examines the process of school nurse case management, which includes the development of individualized goals and the provision of specific interventions. The process is then linked to several outcomes (parent perception, quality of life, and academic success). The study demonstrates the complexity of case management provided by school nurses and how goal attainment is related to the outcomes. The study supports policy recommendations that advocate for the importance of professional school nurses in improving the health and well-being of students with asthma.
