HSIB investigation into asthma management in children
The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) would like to invite you to their webinar marking the launch of the new report ‘Management of chronic asthma in children aged 16 years and under’.
Asthma is the most common lung disease in the UK, and diagnosis and management of the condition, particularly in children and young people can be complex.
The case study in our investigation features a 5 year old who had a near fatal asthma attack.
In this webinar you will hear from families, our HSIB investigators and from experts in respiratory illness including Dr Jen Townshend and Professor Andrew Bush. The webinar will provide an opportunity for you to explore in greater depth our findings, what we are recommending to improve the outcomes of children and young people with asthma, and give you an opportunity to ask questions.
This webinar will help you understand how HSIB’s experience can be applied to your own healthcare setting, as well as finding out what work will be undertaken nationally to implement our recommendations.
