IPCRG has developed a package of resources to support primary care professionals to provide personalised care to adults with asthma. Personalised care identifies what is most important to each person and ensures that they receive care designed for their individual needs and preferences. By providing personalised care, clinicians can support patients to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their own health. This is particularly important as evidence shows that patients’ ability to manage their asthma has a major impact on their outcomes including asthma control, exacerbations, hospital admissions and quality of life.
