Patient Education Referral Service

Do you have patients with asthma that require additional support to improve their asthma control?

Health Professionals are able to refer patients to the Asthma Foundation's Referral Service.  This service provides additional education and support and goal setting around asthma self management.  The service aims to work with the GP to achieve improved asthma control in patients. 

All patients with asthma can be referred to the service, free of charge.  The service may be particularly useful for patients:  Recently diagnosed, recently hospitalised or attended the Emergency Department, people with poor/partial asthma control who are having difficulties managing their asthma and require additional support to achieve improved outcomes.

This service provides:

Tailored support for the individual and  works to reinforce asthma self management as determined by the GP. 

Key management principles include:

  • Ensuring patient understands prescribed medication and when to take it
  • Asthma basic facts
  • Symptoms and how to recognise worsening asthma
  • Checking of device technique
  • Goal setting
  • Working to improve asthma control using the validated Asthma Control Test

Referrer details:

You can now refer your asthma patients to Asthma Foundation's 1800 ASTHMA 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.
