Asthma Slide Rule and Guidance - Australia

The Asthma Right Care Slide Rule has been developed as part of as part of the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) Asthma Right Care (ARC) initiative, to stimulate conversations about over-reliance on short-acting beta2 agonists (SABA) to manage asthma, which regard as a global problem that goes unchallenged far too often. Those conversations might be between prescribers, asthma educators, pharmacists and patients.  

The Guidance Notes provide potential steps and questions to ask when using the Asthma Right Care Slide Rule. Tailor it according to the person you are talking to. 

National Asthma Council Australia has converted Asthma Right Care Slide Rule according to Australian compliance. Please click here for the Australia Asthma Right Care Slide Rule and Guidance Notes.
