Programs & Initiatives in Health Care
These posters are designed to assist school health office staff, pharmacists, asthma educators and primary care clinics in prompting patients to identify their inhaled asthma medications. The posters display a photo of each inhaler; the generic and brand name of the medication; the delivery dose; and manufacturers’ name for all currently available inhaled asthma medications commonly prescribed in the US.
Posters are available for print distribution below. All information presented on the posters is available in the interactive panels.
Use the poster to:
- Review the role of medications – help patients understand the difference between relievers/rescue/bronchodilators and controllers.
- Foster conversations between patient and provider to gain insight of patient self-management challenges and ways to help them improve their self-management skills.
- Review inhaler technique.
- Tailor educational approach that meets the cultural and literacy needs of the patient and family.
