Child Health BC (CHBC) and the Guidelines and Protocols Advisory Committee (GPAC) collaborated on the development of a new provincial pediatric asthma guideline. The guideline identifies the care requirements for the pediatric population, including a specific new guideline for the diagnosis and management of children aged 1-5 years.
Burnaby Hospital maintains a Virtual Pediatric Asthma Education Clinic. The aim is to improve patient knowledge and adherence through education, thus reducing exacerbations and hospitalizations with an ultimate improvement in quality of life. As part of the BC Pediatric Asthma Network, the Clinic further aims to standardize care based on the Child Health BC guidelines.
