Our Goals

In order to fulfill our mission of improving health outcomes and quality of life for individuals affected by asthma, the NAC is focusing on four key areas:

Clinical Care

  • Increase use of asthma guidelines for diagnosis and management of asthma within the healthcare system.

Data/Surveillance

  • Gather and interpret baseline asthma data, determine outcome measures and assess effectiveness of interventions over time.

Education/Awareness

  • Promote asthma self-management education for patients and caregivers and raise awareness of asthma in the community.

Environment

  • Expand environmental control measures to reduce exposure to asthma triggers at home, school, work and in the community at large.
