Dive into our new educational tools this World Asthma Day


We are pleased to launch a set of educational tools on supporting people with asthma in the 21st century to coincide with World Asthma Day (7th May). The suite of resources includes animations, podcasts and an online learning module - we will also host a webinar on the 15th May focused on the GINA approach to managing asthma.

This year's World Asthma Day theme - Asthma Education Empowers - calls for greater awareness of the evidence on effective management of asthma. Our new asthma tools are a useful educational resource to help ensure healthcare professionals are equipped to provide reliable information and optimal treatment for their asthma patients.

Key learning brought to life

Our two animations bring essential asthma management education to life – watch two short videos on:
⏯️ Ensuring optimal treatment for asthma management
⏯️ Maintaining effective asthma treatment

The animations focus on ensuring patients with asthma receive the most suitable treatment for them and that they follow the correct treatment pathway.

Tune into our podcasts

We’ve produced two podcasts on:
🎧 Ensuring optimal treatment for asthma management
🎧 A patient perspective: Identifying the best asthma treatment

The episodes feature the perspectives of healthcare professionals (a pharmacist, a nurse and a GP) and a patient - and will cover the importance of patient knowledge when it comes to ensuring optimal asthma treatment.

Learn online at your leisure

Our asthma online learning module is exclusively available for PCRS members (if you're not a member you can join today). The interactive module takes you through the GINA approach to managing asthma and using this, in collaboration with patients, to ensure and maintain optimal treatment for people with asthma. 

Work through the educational videos and multiple choice questions and when you complete the module, you will receive a certificate for your professional portfolio.

This resource is available to members via their PCRS dashboard.

On demand webinar

Watch the 90-minute webinar on the topic of supporting people with asthma in the 21st century. The session will explored how you, as an individual clinician, can use the GINA approach to managing asthma in the delivery of best practice asthma care. The webinar featured guest speakers Michael Crooks, Nicola Standring-Brown and Benedict Greenwood.
