Brief description This study aims to determine whether a validated evidence-based cough algorithm initiated at the development of chronic cough, defined as >4 weeks duration, following an acute respiratory illness (ARI) improves clinical outcomes in urban, rural and remote Indigenous children compared to standard care. The study will also examine the predictors of chronic cough and cough outcomes in these children as well as the cost-effectivess of the intervention.
