Lung health awareness
Symptoms of lung disease tend to creep up slowly and people often put the symptoms down to aging or lack of fitness.
Increasing awareness of lung health and the early warning signs of lung disease can support earlier diagnosis and intervention before the disease becomes serious or even life threatening. Early diagnosis is key to improving outcomes and health professionals play a central role in ensuring all Australians receive equitable care and treatment. You can help increase awareness of lung health and the symptoms of lung disease by sharing Lung Foundation Australia’s resources and initiatives with your patients and networks.
