Description:
With the introduction of the new under 6s contract a lot of pressure is going to be added to practice nurses when it comes to asthma care. It’s time to start thinking about setting up an asthma register that is easy to update and maintain. While most health systems offer an audit tool or a way to pull information off the computer, they can be somewhat limited. If, like me you find that you have to pull multiple files and then end up with duplicate patients in a long word document that actually doesn’t tell you what your were looking for, then it’s time to compile this data in a simple and easy to follow excel sheet. For the past two years I’ve been using excel incorrectly for my ‘Diabetic Database’ and recently went looking for a simpler way to make it work. The result was a new method which has saved me countless hours every year. I’m now implementing the same system to my new ‘Asthma Database’.
