The Asthma Clinic is a collaborative clinic involving nurse practitioners, pediatricians and asthma educators and it helps to diagnose asthma and manage uncontrolled asthma symptoms.
The average number of visits with the Asthma Clinic is 3-4 visits after which time most patients will be discharged back to the care of your regular doctor to continue managing your asthma. It can take more than one visit to establish a diagnosis, in particular if your asthma is seasonal or intermittent. Once a diagnosis is established, the goal is to not have any asthma symptoms or asthma attacks. To achieve this goal you will be given an asthma action plan, asthma education, the correct medication device and asthma medications.
The Severe Asthma Clinic is for children who have uncontrolled asthma despite being on moderate to high doses of asthma medications. Children are seen in this clinic after being assessed in the Asthma Clinic and are managed by a pediatric respirologist and allergist. The Severe Asthma Clinic provides long term management for patients with difficult to control asthma.
