Respiratory Nurse

The Respiratory Care Nurse telephone service is available for people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or bronchiectasis. The Respiratory Care Nurse aims to connect patients with the information and support to live well with their lung condition. To make a booking with the Respiratory Care Nurse contact our Information and Support Centre on the free call number 1800 654 301.

Information and Support Centre

Our Information and Support Centre team provides guidance, information and support, and connects people to relevant and valuable Lung Foundation Australia and community support services. This free and confidential service is available Monday to Friday 8am – 4.30pm (AEST) (excl. public holidays). Please note that this service does not offer medical or treatment advice.

Inhaler techniques

Up to 90% of patients with a respiratory condition are not using their inhaler devices correctly1 and therefore aren’t receiving the dose they should. Common errors include improper device preparation, poor coordination during use, inadequate speed and/or depth of inspiration as well as absence of a post-inhalation breath hold. Lung Foundation Australia has a series of inhaler device technique videos and fact sheets detailing step by step instructions to guide your patients on the correct technique.
