Education is recognized as fundamental in the treatment of the asthma in childhood.

Primary care must provide a progressive, continual and individualized educational program to all children with asthma and their families which has as its aim to obtain to the control of the disease in the most independent way possible by the child and/or the family. It implies not only, the transmission of knowledge but the acquiring of abilities and changes in family lifestyles.

In the present workshop we will review the tools which are available to the paediatrician and the nurse to educate the asthmatic child, the most common difficulties that appear in the practice, and the resources that we have to resolve them, all of this by the presentation of specific clinical cases that the students will then discuss in groups.
