You can now refer your asthma patients to Asthma Foundation's Patient Education Referral Service for additional, quality advice and support.
We provide evidence based, user friendly information and advice to help patients better understand and manage their asthma, and answer any questions that might arise in between GP visits.
Your patient will receive a phone call (within two working days of referral) from one of our Foundation staff to discuss their asthma control and any issues with them. 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 the patient to improve control, in conjunction with their GP.
