BreathChamps: Child asthma re-imagined
10 Oct 2019
Respiratory Clinical Theatre 2
Ever been frustrated when children don't come for their asthma reviews and then present with an exacerbation? Ever wondered why concordance with treatment is not as it should be? Maybe it's time to call in The Big Bad Wolf, who unfortunately has developed asthma and can't blow the piggies' houses down. He needs children's help to use the right inhalers and spacer! In this session, Heather will explain how BreathChamps can help children with asthma to stay well. Here, children learn through play. Group consultations become 'asthma parties'. Children, families, schools and even whole communities learn about asthma through stories. Asthma education becomes 'people-powered' as stories are shared around the community.
