#AskAboutAsthma one-day conference

12 September 2024 9:00am – 4:30pmBST (+01:00)
Virtual (MS Teams)

#AskAboutAsthma returns for its eighth year in September 2024.

The campaign encourages simple changes to children and young people’s care that will make a big difference to how they experience their asthma.

The 2024 #AskAboutAsthma campaign will run from 9 – 15 September, ahead of the rise in asthma attacks in September when students go back to school after their summer holidays.

The campaign is run by the NHS England – London Babies, Children and Young People’s Transformation team and each year sees cross-sector support including healthcare, education, local authorities, VCSE and London region partners.

This year’s theme focuses on helping children and young people with asthma to live their best lives. Asthma should not limit children and young people’s lives in any way. Good asthma control means having no symptoms.

#AskAboutAsthma promotes these four asks:

  1. get an asthma action plan in place.

  2. understand how to use inhalers correctly.

  3. schedule an asthma review every year and after every attack.

  4. consider air pollution and its impact on lung health – every asthma conversation should include indoor and outdoor air pollution.

One-day virtual conference

This year’s one-day virtual conference will be held on Thursday 12 September 2024.

Please register for this year's conference and share widely within your networks!
