Patient education is an effective tool for helping patients gain the motivation and acquire the skill in controlling a chronic condition such as asthma.
In its efforts to ease the burden of asthma care through asthma education and assistance, the Lung Center established a support group program named the Asthma Club designed to educate asthmatics and their families and provide assistance in their needs.
Membership to the LCP Asthma Club requires only a minimal registration fee and attendance to a half-day seminar/workshop conducted on a pre-scheduled Saturday afternoon at the Lung Center. The seminar is conducted by the Education Committee and involves trained facilitators who lead small group discussions on what asthma is, what triggers asthma attacks and how to avoid or minimize them, how to monitor the course of the condition, what medications are useful in asthma, and how to cope with asthma episodes effectively.
