Oregon Asthma Resource Bank
collection of resource materials

Asthma is a complicated disease that requires constant self-management in between visits to the doctor.

While there are many materials out there to support asthma self-management, they are of varying quality and accuracy.

In response to the need for easily accessible, reliable materials, a collaboration of healthcare providers in Oregon came together to create the nationally recognized Oregon Asthma Resource Bank and produce a variety of asthma education handouts and provider tools.


On this page:


Tools for Providers

Resources that support on-going care to patients, including an Asthma Action Plan that summarizes the doctor's instructions for self-management of asthma, a guide to measuring sthma care in your practice, and a questionnaire to be completed by patients with asthma prior to visiting the doctor that assesses control, and dosage chart for inhaled corticosteroids:


Patient Education Handouts

Brief patient education handouts to aid providers when explaining specific topics to their patients and reinforce the key asthma messages of prevention and control.


Tools for School staff

Resources for school staff to support students with asthma:


Permitted Use of Materials

The materials in the Oregon Asthma Resource Bank are intended to be used by health professionals as a patient education aid, helping reinforce key messages about asthma self-management. The materials are intended to be used as a substitute for medical advice and asthma education given by a patient's doctor.
