Home-based Multi-trigger, Multi-component Interventions
The Community Guide provides evidence-based recommendations regarding asthma control.
Interventions that target a wide variety of asthma triggers through home visits are beneficial in improving asthma outcomes. CDC scientists and the Task Force on Community Preventive Services systematically reviewed the evidence of effectiveness of home-based multi-trigger multi-component environmental interventions in improving asthma-related morbidity.
Findings from this review indicate that home-based multi-trigger, multi-component, interventions with an environmental focus are effective in improving overall quality of life and productivity in children with asthma.
Home-based multi-trigger, multi-component, interventions with an environmental focus with mild and moderate environmental remediation are a good value for the money invested.
