The aim of this QI project

The aim of this Quality Improvement Project is to ensure 50% or more of people on the Asthma register (both adults and children), have a personalised Asthma Action Plan, and evidence this with the appropriate SNOMED code in their notes by November 2021.  This is the first of two projects, which involves targeting all patients on the Asthma register and letting them know that the Asthmahub and Asthmahub for Parents app provides them with a virtual Personalised Asthma Action Plan, as well as loads of really useful advice on staying well, using their inhalers, monitoring their peak flow and symptoms, and knowing what to do when their symptoms deteriorate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class="qitaskouterrow"][vc_column][vc_row_inner el_class="qigrey"][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

A recap on the evidence

Data collected from GP practices across Wales suggest that only 16.1% 1-5 year olds, 24.3% 6-18 years olds, and 25.9% adults have any record of a personalised Asthma Action Plan in their records. This QI project will ensure that every patient on the Asthma register has access to a Personalised Asthma Action Plan.

What will I get for completing this project?

Good data entry directly improves patient care, which will also help you identify gaps or errors in the patient record or diagnosis. On completion of this QI project, you will also get a certificate for your work. You will also be able to use this QI project as evidence towards CPD and professional revalidation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
