Rethinking Written Asthma Action Plans project report

Written Asthma Action Plans (WAAPs) have been an integral part of asthma self-management for over 20 years.

While the National Asthma Council Australia continues to emphasise the importance of having up to date WAAPs, we know that uptake and usage of WAAPs is less than optimal.

As part of our commitment to the National Asthma Strategy 2018 and our strategic objective to build Australia’s capabilities in helping people with asthma to live well, we spearheaded an extensive project re-evaluating WAAPs as a self-management tool.
