Asthma week is shaping up to be a huge one for the AFNT team.
On Friday 2nd September we will be at Gateway shopping centre from 8.30 to 3pmish to answer all your respiratory related questions.
During Asthma week our Respiratory health educators will be delivering some Asthma NT resources to Pharmacies and GP clinics in the Darwin, Palmerston and rural areas.
Our slogan for Asthma week is "if your puffer puffs...put a spacer on it!"
Our aim is to get the word out there about the importance of using your inhalers correctly.
We also want to get the message across that spacers are NOT just for children. People of all ages can benefit from using a spacer.
Knowing how to use your inhaler correctly can make a massive difference to your Asthma management by allowing the medication to get into your lungs more effectively thereby improving your quality of life and lung function.
Throughout the week we will be running a social media campaign on both Facebook and Instagram so if you are not already following us you can catch us on face book (3) Asthma Foundation NT | Facebook or Instagram Asthma Foundation NT (@asthma_foundation_nt) • Instagram photos and videos. Please feel free to comment and share our content to help get the message out there. We can all play a part in Helping Territorians Breathe Better!
If you are unsure if you are using your puffer correctly Contact AFNT (asthmant.org.au) and we will get you booked in for a device check and education with one of friendly respiratory health educators.
