TV Show: Asthma Diagnosis Guideline

There is no gold-standard diagnostic test for Asthma, which explains why we have approximately 30% of patients on our asthma register who do not have clear evidence of the disease.

The All-Wales Adult Asthma Diagnostic guideline is a simple, one-page guideline, providing specific guidance for anyone making a diagnosis of Asthma across Wales. It standardises the diagnostic process, and provides a consistent approach to care in Wales.

In this TV show, Dr Katie Pink, the National Asthma Clinical Lead and Consultant Respiratory Physician, explores the problem further and introduces the Guideline.
