An introduction to the Consensus pathway: Management of Uncontrolled Asthma in Adults


The Accelerated Access Collaborative is a national initiative aimed at improving asthma care across the system. The ‘Consensus Pathway’ is intended to be a blueprint guiding clinicians, managers and commissioners on what optimal care should look like across the entire patient journey. It has been developed by a national multidisciplinary group of clinicians, Allied Health Professions (AHPs) and patients.
