A series of instructional videos on good inhaler technique has been launched by Asthma UK.
Endorsed by the UK Inhaler Group, of which PCRS is a member, the videos have been created to address the variations in how inhaler technique is taught.
Clinically accurate and developed with input from people with respiratory conditions, these are short, easy-to-watch tutorials showing how to best use the most commonly prescribed inhalers.
The videos are designed to enable patients to check their technique any time, or for healthcare professionals to use in clinic.
Andy Whittamore, GP, PCRS member and Asthma UK Clinical Lead, “As healthcare professionals, we can’t be with our patients all the time, but we now all have a reliable and up-to-date library of inhaler videos. This will give both me and my patients the confidence that they are taking their inhaled medicines correctly every time. We can go through the videos in clinic and my patients can view them again in their own time whenever they need to.”
