Emergency Asthma Management 10392NAT
Asthma affects 1 in 9 children, many of whom attend care services regularly. It is important that staff in these services have a good understanding of asthma, put in place strategies to minimise the impact of asthma and have the skills and confidence to manage an asthma emergency. Having the right knowledge to act quickly could save a child's life.
