Ten Ways to Use One Minute Asthma

  • Waiting Room. Ask your patients to read pages 7, 10, 44 and 45 of the eighth edition. These patients will ask better questions and have more focused visits. Read the study abstract.
  • Exam Room. Ask your patient to read a page or two while you see another patient. When you return, you will be able to have a more fruitful conversation about complex subjects such as the use of inhaled steroids or peak flow monitoring.
  • Home. Assign a particular topic for study before the next visit. Many patients will be motivated to read more.
  • Emergency Room. Use the waiting and treatment time to cover proper use of a holding chamber or compressor driven nebulizer. Then check the patient's technique.
  • Office Staff Training. Assign specific pages of One Minute Asthma to receptionists, aides and nurses. Once staff start using the same vocabulary, communication with patients will be more effective.
  • Case Management. Mail One Minute Asthma to clients. The case manager and patient will be able refer to the same page during follow-up phone calls.
  • Asthma Learning Tool. Each question on the Asthma Learning Tool (ALT) refers to a specific page of One Minute Asthma. People learn as they look up the answers. The ALT is available as a free download.
