Asthma Guidelines

The asthma guidelines in the UK were revised in January 2012 and are based upon research developed by asthma experts at the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network and the British Thoracic Society. If you have asthma you will be aware that this is a long-term condition, needing careful management in partnership with your doctor or asthma nurse and in practising environmental allergen control.

The UK asthma guidelines cover:
- Drug treatment for asthma
- Non-drug treatment, including alternative medicine approaches
- Inhalers
- Self-management and patient education
- How care should be organised and delivered
- Pregnancy & Allergy Information
- Occupational asthma
- Management of asthma attacks
