Asthma Myths Asthma Is Not a Serious Disease

#AsthmaMyths - "Asthma Is Not a Serious Disease"

"It’s only asthma...” Sound familiar? Many patients wrongly think asthma is not a serious disease. These misconceptions can be countered with the right clinical skills and tools.

Listen to our Asthma Myths Podcast

Despite the reality of high asthma death rates in the UK, Asthma Myths mean many do not take the condition seriously.

In our Asthma Right Care podcast, Deborah Leese and Dr Mark Levy share how HCPs can tackle misconceptions and put asthma patients on the right path.

 

"As clinicians we need to avoid perpetuating the myth that asthma is not a serious disease. It definitely is not “only asthma” and something that can kill is certainly not mild!"
- Deborah Leese
