Recipe Name:

Patients with respiratory conditions and no smoking status recorded

Rationale:

Compared with non-smokers with asthma, smokers with asthma have:

• more asthma symptoms

• worse asthma control

• a more rapid decline in lung function

• more airway inflammation

• less response to preventer medication

Therefore it is important that the smoking status is recorded for every patient diagnosed with a respiratory condition.

Target:

To effectively manage asthma and COPD patients through establishing adequate recording systems.
