Key messages for good asthma care – posters for your school

It’s estimated that in every classroom there will be three children who experience life with asthma. These children are more likely to miss school days because of ill health, to end up in A&E or be admitted to hospital.

North Central London Partners have designed posters with three key messages for asthma care that if followed will reduce the likelihood of admission to A&E and even save a life.

Please can you share these with your school community?

The posters focus on three key asks that will provide good asthma care:

  • Ask for  an asthma management plan
  • Ask to be shown the correct the inhaler technique
  • Ask for an annual asthma review

Please can you download, print and display on a notice board the poster for children aged 11+  follow link to the poster for 11+ do you have asthma
