Gupta et al. (doi:10.1542/peds.2014-0402) share with us the results of some demographic and health data from the Chicago Public School database. The results are disappointing and indicate only one in four students has an asthma action plan, and about 50 percent of students with food allergy had school management plans. Just who are the students with and without plans, and why are so few getting these plans instituted in schools are topics included in the Results and Discussion sections of this interesting paper.
Read it in detail and learn more so you can insure that your patients do have asthma and food allergy action plans in place as we enter a new school year.
