The Onslow County Pediatric Asthma Coalition, managed by Onslow Memorial Hospital, was established in 2001 to enrich the quality of life for all children (0-17 years) with asthma and their families, linking community based resources in Onslow County, NC.

Services provided range from basic asthma education to intensive case management throughout the continuum of care to include home, school, hospital and physician office settings. Children are referred to the program through their physician or school nurse, or hospitalization due to asthma, or numerous emergency department visits. Services are provided from a healthcare provider and case manager.

The 2001-2003 health outcomes evaluation revealed that program participation improved hospital utilization, emergency department visits, symptoms, medication use, change in clinical action, functional status, and use of an asthma action plan.
