Parent Connect – FREE ASTHMA EDUCATION FOR PARENTS

Are you a parent who would like to learn more about your child’s asthma?

The Asthma Foundation of Victoria provides free asthma education sessions for parents of school-age children. The session provides up-to-date information about asthma, medications, delivery devices and what to do in an asthma emergency.

As a parent of a child with asthma, there is a lot to learn and knowing the basics about asthma and the latest about asthma management can help you ensure your child has well managed asthma. Your guidance through their early years helps your child understand their condition and develop good self- management skills as they become more responsible. This is important for setting them on a successful path to live well with their asthma through life.

Who should attend: Parents and/or carers of children with asthma.

What you will learn:

By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of:

* asthma symptoms
* various triggers and how to manage them
* medications available and how they help asthma
* asthma symptom control and how to achieve it
* device technique
* written asthma action plans
* asthma first aid
