Paediatric Asthma

The Paediatric Asthma Course will help you gain a solid understanding of the diagnosis, assessment and management of asthma in children.

You will gain an understanding of the critical importance of accurate clinical history taking and will learn how to carry out a detailed paediatric asthma patient review. You will learn how to analyse data collected at review in such a way as to define current level of disease control and predict the future risk of adverse outcomes.

You will gain an understanding of national and international paediatric asthma guideline recommendations and will recognise potential barriers to the successful implementation of these guidelines. You will also be able to construct and implement a Personal Asthma Action Plan (PAAP).

You will be able to evaluate inhaler technique, recognise ineffective techniques and match the child to a device that they can use effectively and without critical error.
