A guide to the main types of asthma and COPD medications available in Australia, updated May 2018.
The Asthma & COPD Medications chart is a useful education resource for health professionals to help with identification and explanation of different treatments. It is available as an A2-sized laminated poster for display on the wall of your clinic or pharmacy.
As well as including all the latest inhalers available in Australia, the updated version specifies the PBS reimbursement status of each medication as at May 2018.
For individual use only, you may download and print the PDF of the Asthma & COPD Medications chart.
Health professionals can order free hardcopies (A2 size) from their local representatives of the supporting companies. Free copies can also be ordered (in both A4 and A2) from our online order store.
The chart was developed independently by the National Asthma Council Australia, with support from Boehringer Ingelheim, GSK Australia, Mundipharma and Teva Pharma Australia.
The Australian Asthma Handbook – Quick Reference Guide is a companion to the full Australian Asthma Handbook Version 1.1, 2015
