It can be scary, confusing and overwhelming when your child is diagnosed with asthma, a chronic disease which at this time has no cure, only control. You want the best possible care, you want to protect them and there is so much to learn about asthma, but where to start? What you should remember is that you’re not alone. Controlling asthma is a process and a team effort and this team consists of the healthcare provider, the patient, you, their caregiver, and added healthcare professionals – your pharmacist and school nurse. But how do you begin to control your child’s (or your own) asthma? We’d like to make some suggestions to guide you in the process of controlling asthma successfully and remove some of the fear. Read this whole issue to learn what you need to know about asthma and how best to control it while removing some of the stress in your life. Also read the highlights of Healthcare reform, 2010 and how they can impact asthma patients.
