Asthma action plans

One of the most useful tools that you can use to manage your asthma and asthma in your family is an asthma action plan.

Asthma action plans summarise important information about your asthma medicines, such as directions for how to use them, when to use them and how much to use, in a way that is easy to follow.  Action plans can be individualised for each person.

Where can I get an asthma action plan from?

Your GP or the practice nurse at your clinic can help you develop an asthma action plan.  This is a good way to review the asthma medicines you and your family currently have, and whether you are managing asthma in the best way possible.

You can also talk to your local asthma society about developing an asthma action plan for you or anyone in your family.  An asthma nurse will help you do this.  A list of local asthma societies can be found here  or you can visit the Asthma Foundation website  for more information.
