We have two new opportunities for health professionals to share their asthma care experiences and ideas. We are looking for people from a range of health settings to join our new Health Professionals Network and our revamped Asthma Advisory Groups.
Get involved in our projects and help improve asthma care - read on for more details!
Health Professionals Network
We are pleased to announce the launch of our Health Professionals Network (HPN), a community of health professionals who provide care to people with asthma or allergies and who want to help improve asthma resources and services.
The HPN will give a broad range of health professionals the chance to get involved with the NAC’s projects. Members will be consulted for ideas, feedback and advice to ensure their perspective is included and that our work is relevant, accurate and impactful.
All people working in the Australian health care system and providing services to people with asthma or allergies are welcome to join.
Opportunities will vary depending on the project but will include activities such as surveys and focus groups. Members will receive an email whenever engagement opportunities are available, and members are free to participate as much or as little as they like.
For those looking for a more formal engagement opportunity with the NAC, we are also seeking expressions of interest for our Asthma Advisory Groups. Each of the three groups (GPs, pharmacists and nurses) will provide expertise and strategic policy and advocacy advice to help the NAC meet its objectives.
If you are a GP, pharmacist or practice nurse with a keen interest in asthma, we’d like to hear from you. Full details and the Expression of Interest form are available under Committees & Advisory Bodies here: nationalasthma.org.au/about-us/our-people
