The team also revisit some useful tools for treatment, including HASTE and SPECTRA, and signpost some key resources.
- The HASTE tool. Listen now (mp3) Uncontrolled asthma patients can be difficult to identify in primary care for several reasons, meaning patients who could benefit from secondary care are missed. Check out this podcast with Beverley Bostock and Kerry Mills, who take you through their step-by-step HASTE tool created to aid primary care clinicians in reviewing patients with uncontrolled asthma and knowing when to refer. Make HASTE and refer!
