Health coaching for chronic lung conditions

The Aides in Respiration (AIR) Health Coaching Study (2014-2017) was a randomized controlled trial funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute that adapted a health coaching model to the needs of people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A collaboration between the UCSF Department of Family and Community Medicine, the UCSF Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Sleep Medicine Program in the Department Medicine, and 7 community clinics in San Francisco, this study tested a unique model of medical assistant health coaching that supports linkages between primary care and specialty care as well as providing self-management support to patients living with COPD.
