WA Asthma Action Plan Card
A new Asthma Action Plan Card has been released in WA in 2010-2011. The purpose of the Asthma Action Plan is to provide a self management tool. Information for consumers should be reinforced at GP and specialist appointments. Information should be updated at any time there is a change in the treatment/medication regimen. Pharmacists should record all reliever medication provided to asthmatics and provide assessment and referral if necessary.
For Health Professional and Consumer Fact Sheets about this card, or to order copies of the card, please visit: http://www.healthnetworks.health.wa.gov.au/projects/asthma.cfm
