This includes facilitating self management plans with GP’s which are tailored to individual needs and working alongside other services as appropriate. Our service provides education on:

  • What asthma/COPD is
  • Medications - what they do, and how to use them effectively
  • Trigger identification and management
  • Symptom monitoring
  • Managing an asthma emergency
  • Healthy lifestyles

Our Asthma Support Nurse provides educational sessions at home, on the marae, preschools, workplaces or any other locations as required.
