5 Modifications to usual care

5 Modifications to usual care

5.1 Local policies should address modifying usual care at an organisational level.

5.2 Organise outpatient waiting areas so patients can continue social distancing from other patients and from clinic administrative staff.

5.3 Prescribe enough asthma medicines to meet the patient's clinical needs for no more than 30 days' treatment. For inhalers this depends on the type of inhaler and the number of doses in the inhaler. Prescribing larger quantities of asthma medicines puts the supply chain at risk.
