Call for interest - National Asthma Improvement Projects

Details of the call for National Asthma Improvement Projects that went out in January 2011, including selection criteria. Completed applications will have to be submitted by 25 Feb 2011.

The Lung Improvement Programme (LIP) is commencing a new work stream on asthma and we are now inviting applications from parties who are interested in becoming Asthma Improvement Project Sites.

Asthma Improvement Projects will cover one of four topics:

  • Improving Asthma Diagnosis and Medicines Optimisation
  • Transforming Acute Care
  • Chronic Disease Management
  • Integrated Care Pathways

The LIP have issued a detailed workstream outline explaining the aims, outcomes and metrics that would be expected from projects in each of the topic areas, together with an indicative timeline for the project work.

More details of the improvement process and what would be expected from teams taking part in Asthma Improvement Projects are available in an Asthma Project Support Pack
