Inhaler Technique in Adults with Asthma or COPD information paper

$0.00

Incorrect technique when taking inhaled medications frequently prevents patients with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) from receiving the maximal benefit from their medications.

This information paper for health professionals provides a summary of the latest evidence on the prevalence and impact of poor technique, alongside checklists for correct use of the main inhalers available in Australia. It is not intended as a patient hand-out.
