Improving Childhood Asthma Management inner west pilot project
To improve childhood asthma management in Melbourne's inner west
In the Improving Childhood Asthma Management project we're partnering with the following health services to improve the quality of life and health outcomes for children living with asthma in Melbourne's inner west:
- Victoria's Department of Health
- National Asthma Council Australia
- Asthma Australia
- North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network
- Royal Children's Hospital
In 2019, the Victorian Emergency Minimum Dataset showed children in Melbourne's inner west experience higher rates of asthma-related emergencies compared to other Victorian children. We will be testing changes at hospitals, in general practices, community pharmacies, community health centres and schools to improve the quality of life and health outcomes for children living with asthma in the area.
Our progress so far...
