Engaging Asthma resources for teachers and parents
Asthma education for parents and teachers
Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is New Zealand’s principle authority for all respiratory conditions, delivering education, research, and advocacy.
Empowering parents and teachers to better manage asthma Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ had a vision of arming parents, teachers, and families with the knowledge, understanding, and skills to successfully manage children’s asthma. This required a modern approach to provide access to as many caregivers as possible in a relevant and engaging way.
Multimedia mobile-responsive digital guides We started by connecting with local families and schools to better understand their needs when supporting children with asthma. This resulted in two distinct web portals, each tailored to the needs of the audience. For families and caregivers the learning experience is guided and rich with media and reflection points. For schools the on-demand toolkit makes key information quickly accessible, while also providing teaching resources to include students in wider wellness discussions. Together, these materials provide multiple ways for parents and teachers to engage with key messages about asthma management.
Both sites have been well received and now serve as a core component of Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ’s education offering. You can check out both resources here.
