JSPN Podcast with Eileen Kintner on Chilhood Asthma

Dr. Eileen Kintner, associate professor and senior investigator at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing, recently had two articles published in the Journal of Specialists in Pediatric Nursing (JSPN). Her interview with the journal’s editor has been published as a podcast.

The article "Effectiveness of a school-based academic asthma health education and counseling program on fostering acceptance of asthma in older school-age students with asthma” describes her new study focusing on childhood asthma management.

Kintner’s research features a life-span development perspective to increase understanding of the cognitive, behavioral and psychosocial issues that impact condition severity, quality of life, and use of health care services of older school-age children, adolescents, and young adults living with chronic, life-threatening, and terminal conditions.
