AskAboutAsthma one-day virtual conference,including%20housing%2C%20mould%20and%20vaping.



#AskAboutAsthma is back this September for its seventh year, and we want to invite you to be part of it.

For 2023, the #AskAboutAsthma campaign will run from 11 – 17 September. This year’s theme is “Widening our view”. We’re shining a light on the wider factors of children and young people’s asthma care including housing, mould and vaping. “Widening our view” also helps us to raise the profile of asthma; reaching out to everyone who has asthma, their friends, families and the whole system that cares for them.

The #AskAboutAsthma campaign encourages children and young people, their families, and those involved in their care, to ensure four simple and effective measures to help them control their asthma:

  1. Get an asthma action plan in place
  2. Understand how to use inhalers correctly
  3. Schedule an asthma review – every year and after every attack
  4. Consider air pollution and its impact on lung health

Throughout the week there will be webinars, podcasts, blogs, vlogs, social media activity and a one-day virtual conference. Details of the one-day conference can be found below.
