Asthma WA Services

Asthma WA are keen to do work that supports the ACCHS sector, and would love to discuss the following with interested services:

Asthma and COPD Clinical Support and Education:
Asthma WA has a multi-disciplinary team of Respiratory Health Educators who provide access to free, community-based education and support. We are inspired by best practice to be at the forefront of respiratory support, advice and education.

Lung Function Testing Clinics:
Accurate lung function testing, treatment and ongoing self-management support are essential elements in keeping respiratory consumers well in the community. We have 4 major satellite lung function testing sites plus a mobile LFT service.

Spirometry Training: Accredited and re-fresher courses

Asthma and COPD Management Training: Device technique and empowering patients to understand their condition
