Asthma Training Needs Priority: GPs Demand
A survey has recently showed that asthma training still lacks its priority level and two-thirds of GPs in Wales feel that more training should be given to doctors to improve their knowledge of asthma. Asthma UK Cymru's John Mathias has said recently that according to the findings the asthma training is not being given the priority it deserves.
The research is being done by Asthma UK Cymru and the Primary Care Respiratory Society UK over 1,000 doctors in the UK, among which are the 50 Welsh GPs as well. In context to the findings in the research, BMA Wales still tries to maintain his side and said that the quality of GPs' asthma care had definitely risen appreciably in the past 10 years.
Asthma is a condition, which directly affects the airways in the human body. Approx 4,000 people in Wales every year are hospitalized because of asthma, said Asthma UK Cymru and the Primary Care Respiratory Society UK (PRCS).
The survey was basically published to coincide with World Asthma Day 2011, in which it was revealed that more than half of Welsh GPs confirm their lack of knowledge of the condition and the improvement chances of same (if tried).
