Asthma self management education with either regular healthcare professional review or written action plans or both in adults

To evaluate the effectiveness of asthma self management education, self monitoring and either: (1) regular review by a health care provider, or (2) use of a written action plan, or (3) both on patient outcomes. The specific questions addressed are:

  1. Do asthma self management education, self monitoring and either regular review by a healthcare provider or use of a written action plan, or both, lead to improved outcomes in asthma?
  2. What are the characteristics of those programmes that lead to measurable changes in health outcomes?

This is a protocol.
