Asthma impacts the lives of a large portion of the population. In 2010, 2.4 million
(8.4%) Canadians aged 12 years and over were living with asthma . The importance 1
and conditions of treatment are often neglected. Only one in three (34.4%) patients
had their asthma well-controlled. It is essential to improve the support of patients
given the gravity of their disease. Your participation is invaluable because you can
identify the immediate concerns and priorities that are necessary to create a tool that
is useful to patients and health care providers.
We are looking for patients / caregivers and healthcare professionals having
asthma patients or asthma specialists!
This is your chance to be part of a creative experience and design a tool that will
help thousands of other patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals. Your
experience and perspective are highly valued and essential to the creation of such
innovative and useful solutions for patients.
