Patient Education Referral Service
Mandatory field(s) marked with *
We provide evidence-based, user friendly information and support to help patients better understand and manage their asthma, and answer any questions that might arise in between GP or health care professional visits.
Your patient will receive a phone call (within two working days of referral) from one of our Helpline staff to discuss their asthma control and any specific issues. We work with your patient providing education and support, and assist with goal setting. The aim is to ensure people have the knowledge and understanding to practice good asthma self-management.
Asthma Foundations use the Asthma Control Test, a validated tool, to measure current asthma control, and aim to work with your patient to improve control, in conjunction with their regular GP or health care professional.
The COACH Program leads the world with its evidence-based, award winning coaching prevention program for people with chronic disease or at high risk of chronic disease.
The COACH Program is a structured telephone and mail-out delivered coaching program for people with chronic disease or at high risk of chronic disease in which trained Asthma Foundation staff (“coaches”) coach people to achieve national guideline recommended target levels for their particular risk factors.
