World Asthma Day 2023
Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research publishes brief on Digital Tools for Asthma Care
This World Asthma Day, the Usher Institute is delighted to support the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research. Led by Professor Sir Aziz Sheikh at the Usher Institute and Professor Chris Griffiths at Queen Mary University of London, the Centre has recently produced a research policy and practice brief on digital tools for asthma care.
Digital Tools for Asthma Care
Given the potential of digital health to support asthma care, the pace and scale of research and innovation has to be increased, including evaluating implementation of evidence-based digital tools into standard clinical practice. The Centre’s research policy and practice brief on digital tools for asthma care gives recommendations based on evidence from the Centre for people with asthma, policy makers, healthcare professionals and asthma researchers.

Their vision, aligned with that of Asthma + Lung UK, is a world where asthma attacks do not happen.
A collaborative environment
We are a network of world-leading researchers, working collaboratively on key areas of research to improve the prevention and management of asthma attacks.
Strategic research priorities
Our research focuses on developing, testing and implementing interventions which have the potential to achieve substantial, sustained reductions in asthma morbidity and mortality.
Continuously improving the research environment
We have created a supportive ecosystem to facilitate and advance the world-leading applied asthma research we undertake. This ensures all research is of the highest possible quality, conducted efficiently, with people affected by asthma at the core of all we do.
