These resources have been created by HIOW Respiratory Sustainability Group to support medication optimisation for patients with respiratory conditions, and to reduce the environmental impact of inhalers. They are designed to be used by GPs, Respiratory Nurses and PCN Teams involved with conducting annual respiratory reviews. It’s important to ensure that any changes made to device choice should be made with the patient, and that the correct inhaler technique for the specific device has been demonstrated and understood.
