Patient Education Handouts

The CHAMPS Patient Education Handouts provide concise, visual, take-home information for patients and their families. The handouts correspond to specific Asthma Counseling Modules—the core patient education components of the Asthma Counseling sessions. Instructions for how to implement the Asthma Counseling Modules are provided in the Manual. Handouts are most effective when counselors follow these simple guidelines:

 

  • Explain the information on each handout, making sure the family understands the content, before giving them a copy.
  • Share the handouts slowly over multiple visits; attempting to give out multiple handouts at a single visit may lead to "information overload".
  • Provide only the handouts that are pertinent to their child's unique sensitivities and exposures; giving families all of the handouts, regardless of their child's sensitivities and exposure is misleading and confusing. 

 

Download individual files by clicking on the language you want next to the name of the handout. The full set of handouts is available in the Patient Handouts section of the Manual.
