Join us for the “Paediatric Asthma Diagnosis, Management and Prescribing Guidelines” Launch Event

An interactive 1-hour event for all healthcare professionals who are involved in the diagnosis and management of children with Asthma.

During the event the panel will launch the All Wales Paediatric Asthma Diagnosis Guideline, and the All Wales Paediatric Asthma Management and Prescribing Guideline. The guidelines set out the patient pathway for Wales, explicit in diagnostic criteria, referral thresholds, and national medication choices. These hugely anticipated guidelines are the result of more than 2-years of work from a multi-disciplinary team, have been through a rigorous governance process and approved by AWMSG.

The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and the event link will be sent out by email on the morning of the event. The event will be recorded, and a video made available on the All Wales ICST Platform for those unable to attend the event live.
