Inhaler technique is a significant factor in proper management of Asthma and COPD. Medicines Use Reviews in Pharmacies, Nurse-led clinics and Hospital-based clinics are useful places where good inhaler technique can be re-enforced. There is no harm in reviewing patient’s technique regularly because it is difficult to kick out old habits and even more difficult to learn new tricks. It is with pleasure therefore, that I share with you the following videos produced by an Independent, Not for profit and Evidence based Australian outfit know as NPS MedicinesWise (Website | Youtube) {NPS – National Prescribing Service?}.
