Asthma Management Handbook

Asthma action plans

Every person with asthma should have their own written asthma action plan that is appropriate for their treatment regimen, asthma severity, culture, language, literacy level, and ability to self-manage.

When provided with appropriate self-management education, self-monitoring and medical review, individualised written action plans consistently improve asthma health outcomes.

The National Asthma Council Australia has a range of asthma action plan templates available to order or download:
