Asthma is the most common long-term medical condition in children in the UK which has one of the highest prevalence, emergency admission and death rates for childhood asthma in Europe. The National Review of Asthma Deaths, published in 2014, found avoidable factors in most asthma deaths and made clear recommendations to improve standards of care and reduce mortality yet standards of asthma care in the UK and in many countries across the world remain poor.

As a common long-term respiratory condition, effective healthcare management and self-management of asthma, is fundamental in supporting children and young people to achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives.

Led by a tutor who is a health professional experienced in working with children and young people with asthma, this course moves beyond the basics of asthma focusing on developing knowledge and skills to enable translation of learning to the delivery of high-quality care for children and young people in all areas of clinical practice.

This course meets the training requirements for Tier 3 and Tier 4 set out in the capability framework and will also be accredited specifically for Tier 4.

The course covers the basics (essentials) and beyond, exploring the patient, family, healthcare professional and organisational barriers to effective care. Learners will work through a structured programme of education, aligned to the national bundle of care, to develop and build on their knowledge and skills for managing asthma in this age group so that they receive the best possible asthma care, live well with their asthma, and avoid poor health outcomes such as asthma attacks or worse.
