Have your patients been affected by thunderstorm asthma?
The Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services has launched an incident page on its website, providing general information and specific support to families who may have lost a loved one as a result of the tragic thunderstorm asthma event on 21 November 2016.
Support offered to the Community
Part of the Department's initiative will include organised information sessions for the community during which you will hear first-hand about what thunderstorm asthma is and how you and your family can prepare for the next pollen season. These sessions will be held during late January and February in both Melbourne and Geelong.
