PRESS model

Our vision is that every Canadian elementary student with asthma enjoy optimal quality of life resulting from well controlled asthma and facilitated by knowledgeable, enabled and integrated support from their family, school and health sectors. Asthma Centre supports a comprehensive school-based asthma approach entitled Partners in Respiratory Education Supporting Students (“the PRESS model”), as a cost effective model to help elementary children with asthma establish healthy, enduring behaviors. This model, when implemented should build capacity and support in health and educational sectors, schools and communities to reach, educate and equip students with asthma.
