Resource Summary: Part of the NHCHC's Adapted Clinical Guidelines series, this edition promotes continued improvement in the quality of asthma care provided to adults and children whose lack of financial and social resources complicate the treatment and self-management of their chronic disease.

Resource Details: In 2003, the Clinicians’ Network developed special recommendations for the care of people with asthma who are experiencing homelessness. These recommended clinical practice adaptations were reviewed and revised in 2018 to ensure they were consistent with updated (EPR-3, 2007) guidelines for the diagnosis and management of asthma and with best practices in homeless health care. The 2018 edition promotes continued improvement in the quality of asthma care provided to adults and children whose lack of financial and social resources complicate the treatment and self-management of their chronic disease.
