3041. Involving Community Pharmacies in Improving Asthma Outcomes in an Urban Pediatric Population

been shown to improve outcomes. (1) Outcomes will be assessed by blinded and structured patient phone interview at 1, 3, and 6 months. Patients randomized to usual pharmacy care will fill prescriptions by their usual preferred method, whereas patients randomized to enhanced pharmacy care will have these same prescriptions electronically transmitted to specifically trained pharmacists at one of the participating community pharmacies. Both "usual pharmacy care" and "enhanced pharmacy care (...) " will be provided within all participating pharmacy sites. Community pharmacies located in five zip codes in Northeast and Southeast DC with the highest absolute numbers of pediatric ED asthma visits to hospital in the District (20019, 20020, 20032, 20002, 20011) will be selected for the program based on their geographic distribution and ability to meet programmatic expectations. Pharmacies will receive electronically transmitted, faxed or verbal prescriptions from the IMPACT DC Asthma Clinic staff for patients

3042. A Mammography FastTrack Program in Increasing the Number of Women Undergoing Breast Cancer Screening

Network (MGPC-PBRN). Practices within the MGPC-PBRN are stratified according to baseline mammography screening rates (high vs low) and practice type (community health center vs hospital-based vs community-based) and are randomized to 1 of 2 arms. Arm I: Physicians and practice managers receive e-mail alerts at months 1 and 3 informing them of the availability of mammography screening data for their panel of primary-care patients. A hyperlink refers the provider to a web-portal for the Mammography (...) FastTrack program that lists all eligible patients who have not undergone mammography. The provider may then click a button to schedule, defer (providing reason for deferral), or provide the date of a recent mammogram. Arm II: Practices continue standard care. At the end of 12 months, electronic report and billing data and a review of electronic health records are used to determine the completion of mammograms.

Information and low back pain management: a systematic review. A systematic search of three electronic databases was done to identify randomized controlled trials on the effect of written or audiovisual information in low back pain.To determine whether information is an effective preventive action and/or therapy for low back pain and which type of information is most effective.Information is commonly used in the primary care of low back pain and mostly delivered by booklets.A systematic (...) evidence that they are efficient on healthcare use. There is no evidence that e-mail discussion or video programs alone are effective to reduce low back pain, disability, and healthcare costs.Information based on a biopsychosocial model is recommended in primary care to shift patient beliefs on low back pain. Nevertheless, information delivery alone is not sufficient to prevent absenteeism and reduce healthcare costs.

-behavior assessment, tailored feedback on health and health behavior (specifically fruit consumption), and an online referral to see a physician/nurse if necessary. The P&P group received the same assessment, preprinted generic advice on fruit consumption and a mailed referral (where applicable). Students and physicians/nurses completed evaluation forms to assess indicators of feasibility, acceptability (i.e. satisfaction) and quality of each administration mode. Student participation rate was 87 (...) %. The electronic health feedback was positively evaluated. Students perceived the Internet-tailored fruit advice as more pleasant, more personally targeted and more enjoyable, but less credible than the generic preprinted advice (P < 0.01). No differences in indicators of acceptability and quality of consultation were found (P > or = 0.05). Thus, the Internet can be a valuable tool to support physicians/nurses in the field of preventive care. It is recommended to further optimize and evaluate the Internet
