The Utah Asthma Plan provides a road map of asthma activities for the Utah Asthma Task Force. It was developed over the course of a year from 2011-2012. Stakeholders were gathered for the Utah Asthma Summit in October 2011.
The Summit was an all-day meeting designed to provide direction in revising the Utah Asthma Plan. Participants were placed in one of four breakout groups based on their area of expertise:
In each breakout group, participants were asked to define an overarching goal, identify current programs and projects relating to that goal, and discuss gaps in programs that needed to be addressed. This information was used to identify and prioritize measurable outcomes. Participants outlined strategies and activities to achieve these outcomes. Ongoing planning and meetings are conducted at quarterly task force meetings.
