September 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Murray PHN is working in partnership with the National Asthma Council to bring workshops to GPs, practice nurses, registered nurses, allied health professionals and pharmacists.
The aim is to prepare primary health care professionals for the thunderstorm asthma season (September-November), and more specifically for the DHHS thunderstorm asthma public health campaign (launching in early September) that is expected to increase public awareness and interaction of the public with primary health care.
Topics will include:
- What is thunderstorm asthma?
- Who is at risk?
- What to do if thunderstorm asthma is forecast
- Asthma management
- Asthma action plans
- Acute asthma
- Asthma and allergies
