Concordance with asthma treatment

15 March 2021 13:00 - 14:00

The evidence suggests that between two thirds to a half of all medications prescribed for long term conditions are not taken as recommended. In asthma care, there is widespread non-adherence to taking preventer medications regularly (NICE, 2009).

This session will cover:

  • The difference between adherence and concordance with treatment
  • Personalisation and relational working
  • Consultation techniques: benefits/concerns, health/literacy, safety netting
  • How to spot poor concordance
  • Tools to aid concordance including play therapy
