The Lurie Children's Difference
We believe in family-centered care, which means we involve the whole family in your child’s treatment plan. From bringing family members into care plan meetings, to providing support and distraction to a patient’s siblings, we do our best to help fit our care within your lifestyle.
Working together, we can create a home management plan to help your child stay healthy and lead an active lifestyle. Education is an important element of the plan, and we help you prepare all caregivers to respond to symptoms when necessary.
High-Risk Asthma Program
The High-Risk Asthma Program has been developed for patients with especially severe asthma that has been difficult to control. The program involves a multidisciplinary team that assists in addressing treatment barriers and comorbid conditions that can contribute to the severity of asthma. We take a patient centered approach to improve asthma control and the quality of life of our patients. Patients are referred into this program within the Division of Pulmonary Medicine.
