The RCPCH and Asthma UK have worked together to develop this educational programme to explore how healthcare professionals can work together to improve the diagnosis, treatment and management of children and young people with asthma. The importance of the management of this condition has been recently highlighted in the NRAD report and Why Children Die report.

Workshops will explore tools and techniques which healthcare professionals can use in practice. Lectures and debates will explore diagnosis, treatment options and asthma management, as well as establishing and utilising Children’s Asthma networks and championing change locally.
