Achieving compliance in asthma management.

Author information

  • 1Eastbourne Hospitals NHS Trust, East Sussex.


Up to three million asthma patients take their medication using a metered dose inhaler. The drive to reduce the world-wide use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) has resulted in the development of CFC-free metered dose inhalers. Nurses have an important part to play in managing the transition to CFC-free inhaler devices. This will provide an opportunity to improve levels of compliance with treatment and reduce asthma-induced morbidity and mortality
