What is an Asthma Action Plan?


An Asthma Action Plan is a set of instructions for how to manage your asthma symptoms and maintain good asthma control. Every person who has asthma should have a written Asthma Action Plan.

Why should I have an Asthma Action Plan?

Having an up-to-date, written Asthma Action Plan has been shown to reduce the chance of needing emergency medical treatment or hospitalisation for asthma. Despite this, many Australians who have asthma do not have an Asthma Action Plan.

Ask your doctor to prepare an Asthma Action Plan with you that includes:
Make sure that your written Asthma Action Plan is regularly reviewed and updated by your doctor.
You can download an Asthma Action Plan from Asthma Australia or the National Asthma Council Australia.
You should provide carers, teachers, friends and family with a copy of your child’s Asthma Action Plan so that everyone involved in your child's care understands the symptoms and knows what to do in an asthma emergency.http://www.nps.org.au/conditions/respiratory-problems/chronic-airways-and-breathing-problems/asthma/for-individuals/monitoring-and-managing-asthma/asthma-action-plan
