The study, "Evaluation of an Asthma Self-Management Education Program", was undertaken in 1990 at Laval Hospital, in Quebec City, Canada. The case control study sought to evaluate a self-management education program for people with asthma aged 15 and over. The intervention, including three 2.5 hour teaching sessions were administered to patients with asthma and a close relative covering general asthma education and self management. The study ended in 1992 and was found to reduce emergency department visits, work loss and improve quality of life for patients.
