Type

Flipchart

 

Description

The Chronic lung sickness (bronchiectasis) flipchart provides an illustrative introduction to the anatomy of the lungs and their function in the body; and an explanation of chronic lung sickness (bronchiectasis), its signs and symptoms, causes, risk factors, relationship to other chronic deseases and implications for a healthy life.

Written in plain language for Indigenous adults and youth, the flipchart lists the tests that might be done to assess bronchiectasis and describes the different treatment, or management, options that may be prescribed, including pulmonary rehabilitation programs. It includes information on behavioural changes that can assist lung function and diagnosis questions for self-management.

The bronchiectasis flipchart is the result of an initiative of the Queensland Health Statewide Respiratory Clinical Network and the Menzies School of Health Research and was funded by Queensland Health and Menzies School of Health Research, Darwin.
