GASP

  • Do you, your children or family members have asthma?
  • Do you or they use a preventer?
  • Have you ever been to hospital or have you needed to see your GP urgently due to asthma?
  • Have you ever taken steroids to treat your asthma?

 

GASP is the first program of its kind in Australia. A program that aims to tailor the management of your asthma to your specific condition. You will be cared for by a trained asthma nurse and have access to evidence based treatment decisions and education materials based on your individual needs.


GASP has been used in New Zealand for 10 years, where it contributes to keeping people out of hospital, reducing the need for rescue treatment with steroids and reducing patients’ dependence on reliever mediations.

In trial groups GASP has been shown to provide:

 

  • 33 % reduction in hospital admissions
  • 37 % reduction in emergency department presentations
  • 34 % reduction in oral steroid usage
  • 73 % increase in patients not requiring their SABA (reliever) at all
  • 47% decreased requirement for SABA of more than 2 puffs/week

 

People living with asthma can access GASP through a participating GP practice. Ask your GP if they are a part of the GASP program or to find a GASP practice near you contact Asthma Foundation on 1800 ASTHMA.
