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:
- Increase use of asthma guidelines for diagnosis and management of asthma within the healthcare system.
- Gather and interpret baseline asthma data, determine outcome measures and assess effectiveness of interventions over time.
- Promote asthma self-management education for patients and caregivers and raise awareness of asthma in the community.
- Expand environmental control measures to reduce exposure to asthma triggers at home, school, work and in the community at large.
