- Asthma Self-Management Education: A Compilation of Selected Resources: This document was prepared for grantees supported by the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Funding Opportunity Announcement EH14-1404, Comprehensive Asthma Control through Evidence-based Strategies and Public Health – Health Care Collaboration. This document is intended to be used as a resource for identifying evidence-based asthma self-management education curricula. It is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather to highlight curricula that have been evaluated, are available nationally, and are ready for implementation. The NACP seeks to expand access to comprehensive asthma control services. One of the strategies to strengthen asthma control efforts is Asthma Self-Management Education (AS-ME). The purpose of this strategy is to educate people with asthma in self-management skills.
