Emergency department staff may help identify, recruit at-risk patients for asthma intervention program

This method is labor intensive and enrollment activities must avoid competing with other priorities in the delivery of care. However, if research strategies and protocols can be further streamlined, ED staff members seem willing to adjust,” Christine L.M. Joseph, PhD, senior epidemiologist at the department of public health sciences at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, and colleagues wrote.
