The National Review of Asthma Deaths (NRAD) highlighted the lack of Asthma Plans in patients who died due to Asthma. As a practicing GP I understand the difficulty in providing these to the patients as this can be time consuming as the Asthma Plans are lengthy and practice nurses are constrained by time limits. The Network has, in partnership with experienced paediatricians and respiratory nurses, produced a simplified but effective Asthma Management Plan which should be quick to complete and help empower the patients to manage their asthma better. We are working with Arden and GEM CSU to incorporate this in the clinical record systems, thus making it easier to use.
