Questions and Answers

What is asthma awareness training?

Asthma awareness training teaches you how to spot and deal with asthma. It covers what asthma is, what sets it off, and what to do if someone has an asthma attack. This helps you take care of your own asthma or help others who have it.

What is Asthma Control Test

The Asthma Control Test (ACT) is a simple tool for doctors to see how well their asthma patients are doing. It has five questions that patients can answer alone, showing if their asthma has been okay in the last month. The questions are about things like breathing problems, coughing, and how asthma affects daily life.

Scores range from 5 to 25, with higher scores meaning better asthma control.

Doctors use these scores to pick the right treatment and manage asthma better for their patients.

Is asthma considered a disability?

Asthma might count as a disability if it’s really bad and affects daily life and work a lot. The law stops people with disabilities from being treated unfairly and says they should get help at work if they need it.

Whether asthma counts as a disability depends on how much it affects someone’s work and their situation.

What are the top support group for asthma patients in the UK?

In the UK, there are some groups that help people with asthma, including Asthma UK, the British Lung Foundation, BLF Breathe Easy, and the National Asthma and Respiratory Education Centre (NAREC).

These groups offer different types of support like helplines, online communities, local support groups, education and training for healthcare professionals and patients.
