The Montana Asthma Home Visiting Program (MAP), offered by the Montana Asthma Control Program (MACP), was designed to address basic asthma pathophysiology and asthma medications, and it has a significant home environmental focus to address asthma triggers. The program includes six contacts (visits or phone calls) with a nurse or respiratory therapist provided over the course of a year. It also includes help identifying potential asthma triggers in the home, custom asthma education, educational resources and referrals to community services (e.g., weatherization services, health insurance), individual help with managing the medical system, free allergen-proof pillow and mattress covers, and free air filters for those with animals or smokers present in the home.
