    “Check inhaler technique and compliance regularly; poor compliance and inadequate technique are common causes of poor asthma control. Never ask a patient if they know how to use their inhalers, as the answer will invariably, be yes when in reality, the answer might be no.”

    Great advice! Pharmacists should be competent and confident demonstrating inhaler device technique and engaging patients to demonstrate their use. There are lots of resources available from NPS MedicineWise, Lung Foundation, National Asthma Council and Asthma Australia. Use the videos in your interactions with patients.

    Most importantly know the devices, including common and critical errors. Have a simple explanation of each step and why it is important.

    Help patients understand the benefits of preventers. Address their concerns about long-term use of ICS.
