Inhaler technique

Materials for patients

Inhaler techniquePosters have been produced for display in GP practices and community pharmacies to encourage patients to have their inhaler technique checked by a trained healthcare professional.

The project team has also developed a series of ‘how to’ films for patients:

Each film has subtitles in Polish, Czechoslovakian, Mandarin, Punjabi and Urdu. Click the 'read more' link below to view the subtitled films on YouTube.

Cards are also available to signpost patients to the right film for the type of inhaler that they use. This will help them find it easily when they need to refresh their memory and check they are using their inhaler correctly.
