Inhaler Education Toolkit

This toolkit contains a variety of resources to assist providers in giving their patients the information they need to use their inhalers correctly. These resources include: patient education materials, formulary guides, tools to assess patient inhaler technique and much more. We encourage you to browse the tools and see how it can help improve the quality of inhaler education for your patients!
