Top tips for improving care

Top tips on improving care in your practice.

In this final week, we want you to consolidate your learning and begin to explore how you can translate what you’ve learned to your practice environment.

We encourage you to consider how you can adapt the material to your clinical practice and to work with colleagues to improve patient experience and outcomes in primary respiratory care.

In this section, we will look at:

  • Exploring pulmonary rehabilitation as a key strategy to sustain and improve lung health
  • How to work with local populations to prevent respiratory disease
  • Understand rhinitis, a respiratory condition strongly associated with asthma
  • Understand ‘supported self-management’ as a practical and patient-centred approach to manage asthma

There will also be some activities to help you improve your own practices:

  • What practical primary care advice is available to you?
  • What do you already know about the practice setting in which you would like to make a change in primary respiratory care?
  • What practical steps can you take in your practice?

Finally, there will be an assessment covering everything you’ve learned over the past few weeks. Good luck!
