We are excited to announce our next event will be raising the awareness of the importance of inhaler technique on Tuesday the 17th of November from 5-6pm in N309. There are 5.4 million people in the UK with asthma, this means asthma affects one in five households, and three people die every single day due to asthma! Therefore, correct inhaler technique is crucial! Someone you may know could need your help one day, come along, have fun and help improve patient safety! The importance of being able to explain how to use inhalers appropriately is further emphasised through the potential reduction in avoidable asthma related hospital admissions as well as the fact that less than 20% of the total drug is actually delivered to the lungs via inhalers when used correctly!
We will also be going to Bridge Street Social Club (Korova) for some drinks etc afterwards! There will be complimentary pitchers (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). If anyone would like to order food, we can order it for you (menu attached) but we will need to receive a deposit from you along with your order by Friday, and then you can pay the rest of your meal upon arrival! This will help the kitchen out. Remember there is 20% off food with AAA cards, and it is 50% off cocktails!
If any of your friends, flatmates, coursemates etc would like to become a member bring them along! We can sign up new members at this event.
