 Bronchial asthma
The role of education in management of an asthmatic patient
Tadeusz Latoś

Despite the significant progress of knowledge on asthma mechanisms and the increase of effectiveness of medicines used, failures in asthma treatment are still commonly encountered. Patient education and co-operation are prerequisite for the improvement of treatment results. Group training gained some popularity; however, these "asthma schools", organized in big cities, at teaching or general hospitals, reach few, and not necessarily those requiring assistance. Working out individual therapy plans, together with the patient is an effective method of training, which results in disease control improvement. Such plans allow for self-management within fixed limits. Partnership, trust and good communication between a doctor and his patient are the decisive for therapeutical success. A hospital ward, where a well-trained nurse can discuss a reason of recent exacerbation with a patient, is an appropriate site for patient training.
