PCRS offer two posters available for download and use in practice surgeries and pharmacies. The posters highlight the benefit of regular preventer inhaler therapy and a reduction in reliance on short -acting reliever inhalers. Both posters recommend talking to the practice nurse or pharmacist if patients feel they are reliant on their reliever inhaler more than three times per week of if asthma symptoms are frequent. The posters can be downloaded and printed using a colour printer. Posters are A4 in size for convenience of local printing.
