PRECISION – The Patient Charter
Working with experts to create clear and concise statements to define quality care in severe asthma
In 2017 PRECISION initiated a series of meetings with patient organisations, academics and healthcare professionals to identify what quality care should look like in severe asthma services.
The ‘Charter to Improve Patient Care in Severe Asthma’  was published in Advances in Therapy in September 2018. This paper outlines six guiding principles to define what patients with severe asthma should expect in the management of their condition and what should constitute a basic standard of care, in line with the latest science and best practice understanding.
Tonya Winders, President of Global Allergy & Asthma Patient Platfom (GAAPP) discusses the Patient Charter, a publication that outlines six guiding principles that every patient living with severe asthma should expect to be upheld. The Patient Charter was established by a working group of international experts and can be used to demonstrate what quality care for severe asthma looks like.
The Patient Charter was developed as part of the PRECISION programme. The PRECISION programme is organised and funded by AstraZeneca.
