Acceptability and feasibility of a community approach to asthma management : The neighborhood asthma coalition (NAC).
Understanding of asthma and comanagement between patient and physician improves outcome.
Feasibility of programs to achieve these goals in underserved settings is not documented.
We used the Precede-Proceed model to document (a) community acceptance of a program to engage peer support of asthma management and care ; (b) program revision to emphasize greater attention to availability of care and promotional events as channels for education ; (c) engagement of intended audiences in planning and implementation ; (d) participation of parents in program activities ; and (e) peer-based education/support to reach parents, including socially isolated parents whose children experience heightened morbidity.
