Congratulations to Nursing Times Respiratory Category Winners

University Hospital of South Manchester: Severe Asthma Service: A Severe Asthma Education Programme

As a result of this project patients gained a greater insight into their disease and management strategies. Structured educational programmes run simultaneously alongside a relaxed informal session where patients can learn and share from each other’s experiences and gain support. Patients gain a greater feeling of control regarding their condition, make healthier lifestyle choices and have reduced feelings of isolation, which in turn serves to increase improvement in quality of life. A further purpose is to acquire improved control in asthma; through education and empowerment, better concordance to therapy is achieved affecting admission rates and, ultimately, avoiding unnecessary asthma deaths.

Matthew Hodson, Chair of ARNS, said ” We are delighted to add our congratulations to the worthy recipients of this award and we are very pleased to announce that they will be opening the ARNS 2016 Conference”.
