Keeping our children & young people safe with asthma

25 October 2023 10:20 - 11:00

This presentation explores how we can keep our children & families with asthma safe and well.

It will explore what asthma is, how we can teach the fundamental themes, and how to foster good understanding.

When families understand asthma, their children are much less likely to have an attack.

This session will introduce some basic narratives to help explain the pathophysiology and therapy for asthma, help troubleshoot age-related education and also do some mythbusting!
