Comprehensive Care’s respiratory team educates, champions best practice and provides funding to support individuals access the respiratory care they need.
Respiratory disease now affects one in six New Zealanders and is the 3rd leading cause of death*
We develop training programmes for health professionals who work with people that have respiratory issues – predominantly asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Mentorship and support is provided to health professionals to improve their respiratory skills.
Our Giving Airways Support to Patients (GASP) tool enables primary care health professionals to capture an asthma assessment and provide decision support appropriate to the person based on the most current guidelines.
