Environmental Management of Pediatric Asthma for Nursing Professionals
Offered by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Health and the Environment in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association, and the PA Asthma Partnership

The environment plays a critical role in control of a child’s asthma, and with over 7.1 million children affected by asthma (CDC, 2013), nurses must work together to reduce asthma related morbidity. Changes in the environment have likely caused the increased prevalence in childhood asthma, and in this presentation, participants will learn how to recognize, remediate and counsel caregivers and patients on the reduction of environmental contributions to pediatric asthma.

  • This training is presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment and funded under the cooperative agreement award number 1U61TS000118-04 from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).
  • Acknowledgement: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) supports the PEHSU by providing funds to ATSDR under Inter-Agency Agreement number DW-75-92301301-0. Neither EPA nor ATSDR endorse the purchase of any commercial products or services mentioned in PEHSU publications.
