The Good Samaritan Hospital Adult Asthma and COPD Education Program was established in 1996 in Dayton, OH and serves adult patients with asthma.

The program offers a four-session program called "Living with Adult Asthma", a four-hour adult asthma quick class, and one-on-one education sessions with an asthma educator. The program also offers asthma retreats twice a year. In customizing the program to meet patient needs, the quick class and one-on-one education have become the program's cornerstones. An asthma educator provides education to adult patients about medication and equipment use, triggers, asthma pathophysiology and anatomy, and self-management skills.

Evaluations to date indicate that the program has had a positive impact on the following health outcomes: healthcare utilization, work loss, quality of life, and functional status.
