North East and Cumbria Paediatric Asthma and Allergy (NECPAAC)
The Child Health and Wellbeing Network Asthma Leadership Group supported PANNEC (Paediatric Asthma Network North East and Cumbria) to present the systemwide NECPAAC (North East and Cumbria Paediatric Asthma and Allergy) conference in June 2023.
The purpose of the session was to offer pragmatic advice and guidance based on patient journey and experience and aimed to improve asthma care in the community by improving awareness, skill, knowledge and confidence to more effectively manage risk and improve experiences and quality of life for children with Asthma. The conference offered a series of interactive workshops for colleagues to chose from throughout the day. The event was aimed at a wide ranging audience including wider education, social care, housing and pharmacy professionals as well as a wide range of health professionals.
The event took place in June 23 at The Fed in Gateshead and was attended by over 80 delegates from across the geography and system. Feedback from the event was positive and enabled the sharing of learning and experience across the system.
