Teenagers and transition to adult asthma care

6) Working together

  • Asthma management needs a team approach.
  • Teenagers can’t manage their asthma without their parents right away, it takes time.
  • Parents can’t make their teenager take medication into their body.
  • Good asthma control is not hard to achieve, but everyone needs to work together, teenagers, parents and your asthma team.
  • Knowing how to do your bit and understanding what the rest of your team is doing is vital.
