NT PHN & National Asthma Council Australia (NAC) Webinar Series: Little Lungs – A Paediatric Asthma Update
NT PHN and National Asthma Council Australia (NAC) would like to invite health professionals to the NAC Webinar Series. This series will cover the essentials of best-practice asthma and respiratory management for primary care health professionals.
All Health Professionals are welcome – GPs, Practice Nurses, pharmacists, Aboriginal health practitioners, physiotherapists, and other allied health professionals.
This 1 hour session focuses on managing asthma in the paediatric population.

Participants will learn how to:

- Describe the management of asthma across the different ages in children
- Summarise the important information to be included in a Written Asthma Action Plan
- Define the steps in managing acute asthma in primary care
