Asthma Education Centre
Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic conditions in Canada affecting approximately three million Canadians. Over 50% of asthma sufferers, however, do not have their disease well controlled.
The goal of Markham Stouffville Hospital’s asthma education centre is to help you gain and maintain control of your asthma with the least amount of medication.
The clinic provides education for both children and adults based on the Canadian consensus guidelines.
You will learn:
- How to recognize and understand your body’s warning signs
- What triggers your asthma and how to avoid it
- How to take inhaled medications with minimal side effects
- Use an action plan-your personal guide if your asthma gets out of control
- Achieve control of your asthma
