"Behavioural Effect of Self-Treatment Guidelines in a Self-Management Program for Adults with Asthma" was an asthma study that was conducted from 1996 to 1998.  This study, conducted in Enschede, The Netherlands, assessed the long-term efficacy of adding self-treatment guidelines to a self-management program for adults with asthma.

245 adult patients with stable, moderate to severe asthma were included in this prospective randomized controlled trial. They were randomized into a self-treatment group and a control group. Both groups received self-management education delivered by a specialized asthma nurse in three consecutive weekly 90-minute small group sessions for the patients and their partners. Additionally, the self-treatment group received self-treatment guidelines based on peak expiratory flow (PEF) and symptoms.
