GUIDE ASTHMA WORKSHOP - Asthma Patient Education Today and Tomorrow. Closing the gaps in education resources for asthma patients

 Registration is closed for this event

Context

The GUIDE Asthma project aims to provide a better understanding of the resources and materials currently available for asthma patients and patient organisations at national and international levels, thereby identifying gaps in access to crucial patient education and guidance for asthma patients to manage their disease on daily basis. 

In October-November 2022 EFA, supported by the European Lung Foundation ELF conducted a survey among EFA membership and the wider asthma patient association community to identify information on the asthma patient education materials available across Europe and wider. During the workshop we will discuss the results, best practices, and reflect on what is available for patients, identify the gaps in the current education material available to asthma patients and provide Patient Organisations useful data to entail discussions with national scientific societies to advocate for the implementation of the existing guidelines and for the improvement of asthma patients educational resources, to ensure that patients are better supported and empowered across their care.

 

Objectives

  • To present the survey results
  • To identify areas to improve GINA knowledge among patients
  • To identify the gaps in the current knowledge material available to asthma patients
  • To provide Patients Organisations with useful data to entail discussions with national scientific societies to advocate for the implementation of the guidelines.
