Asthma Australia is pleased to welcome an update to The Australian Asthma Handbook (Version 2.1 2020), released by the National Asthma Council Australia. To help people with asthma know their options, we have developed a quick reference guide, view our consumer guide to the Handbook changes here.

The National Asthma Council Australia’s Asthma Handbook (Version 2.1 2020) sets the best practice guidelines for primary healthcare professionals to diagnose and manage asthma. For a person with asthma, the guidelines set the standard of medical care and treatments they can expect in the hospital, at their doctor, and at the pharmacy.

For health professionals wanting a more technical overview, you may be interested in the highlights version, found via the National Asthma Council Australia website.
