#AskAboutAsthma is back for 2022! Led by NHS England – London, the campaign is now in its sixth year and encourages simple changes to children and young people’s care that will make a big difference to how they experience their asthma.

In previous years, the campaign has focused on three asks:

1. Get an asthma action plan in place,

2. Understand how to use inhalers correctly,

3. Schedule an asthma review – every year and after every attack

But for 2022, we’ve added a fourth ask:

4. Consider air pollution and its impact on lung health.

We want every conversation on asthma to think about the impact of indoor and outdoor air pollution on lung health.

This year’s campaign theme is the additional challenges caused by inequalities in care for children and young people with asthma and how these can be addressed.

Anyone can support the campaign – nurses, other clinicians, teachers, youth group leaders, parents and carers, and young people themselves, with and without asthma. Communications toolkits have been developed to help you to get involved and spread the message locally, including printable campaign posters, newsletter or email copy, and assets for social media. Supporters can go further by planning training events around asthma care, or fundraisers with proceeds donated to asthma charities.

Between September 12 – 18, content will be released daily including blogs, podcasts and short videos, in addition to webinars and the one-day flagship #AskAboutAsthma conference where an expert speaker panel will discuss a range of topics including the patient voice, air pollution, and transition through services.

Please get involved and help share this campaign so even more children and young people are supported to #AskAboutAsthma.
