Using impact asthma echo to influence physician self-efficacy and guideline adherence
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence on provider self-efficacy and guideline adherence as a result of participation in Impact Asthma ECHO. The researcher addressed the following research questions: How does participation in Impact Asthma ECHO influence primary care provider self-efficacy? How does engagement in the learning activities of Impact Asthma ECHO promote clinical guideline adherence? Participants included 19 Primary Care providers participating in Impact Asthma ECHO via online video-conferencing. The researcher utilized a data-triangulation method, collecting data via self-efficacy surveys, Continuing Medical Education surveys, a Community of Inquiry coding template, and Medicaid Claims Data. While findings of the study were limited by a relatively small subset of participants, the significant contribution of the present research is the utilization of the modified Community of Inquiry coding template for the purposes of evaluating group engagement and learning in a synchronous, web-based videoconferencing educational session.
