Asthma Management Guidelines

Guidelines for the management of asthma in California schools.

Asthma is a leading cause of school absenteeism. The California Department of Public Health's (CDPH) "Guidelines for the Management of Asthma in California Schools" and "Asthma Action Plan for Schools and Families" assist schools in effectively managing this chronic disease. The "Guidelines for the Management of Asthma in California Schools" were developed jointly by health professionals in the California Department of Education and the California Asthma Public Health Initiative, in statewide collaboration with asthma experts and stakeholders.

Both the "Guidelines for the Management of Asthma in California Schools" and the "Asthma Action Plan for Schools and Families" are available at California Breathing External link opens in new window or tab..
