About the Health Professionals Network
The Health Professionals Network (HPN) is a community of health professionals who provide care to people who have asthma or allergies, and who want to help us improve our resources and services.
We recognise the importance of considering the experiences of stakeholders when planning changes to health services or resources. Community involvement helps improve the understanding and effectiveness of asthma care in Australia for both the community and health professionals.
The HPN allows the National Asthma Council (NAC) to consult the professional community for input and feedback to ensure their perspectives are included throughout NAC’s work, and to ensure that work is relevant, accurate and impactful.
The NAC educates and supports GPs, nurses and pharmacists to provide best-practice care to people with asthma and their carers and families. For more information on the NAC, click here.

What does being a member of the HPN involve?
The HPN will be consulted for advice and assistance in the planning, delivery and/or evaluation of NAC projects, services and resources.
By joining the HPN you are giving us permission to email you when engagement opportunities are available in our projects. There’s no obligation to participate in any of the opportunities. You can get involved in as many or as few as you want.
Opportunities will vary depending on the project we're working on. Many will be online but some will be in person or by teleconference. Some will let you improve asthma care in your professional or geographical area, while others might affect broader asthma care and services.
Some examples of opportunities include:
- Filling out a survey about our resources or training services
- Taking part in a focus group about new projects
- Joining a working group for an update of one of our resources, such as our information papers or the Australian Asthma Handbook
Who can join the Network?
Membership is open to people working in the Australian health care system and providing services to people with asthma or allergies.
