SIGN patient booklets based on SIGN 153: British guideline on the management of asthma have just been published.

Managing asthma in adults explains the recommendations in the clinical guideline produced by the British Thoracic Society (BTS) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), about how you can get assessed and diagnosed for asthma, and the approaches that can help after diagnosis.

The booklets gives information about the care people are likely to get and can expect and will also be of interest to partners, friends, family, carers and employers.

Also available are Managing asthma in children and Asthma in pregnancy.
