Eftekhari P, Forder P & Byles J. Asthma Cycle of Care uptake among Australian older women with asthma. International Medicine Journal, 2016; 46(8): 990–991

Our findings show that ACC is used by a minority of women in later life. However, this proportion is higher than the average population rate of 17.6/1000 asthma patients aged 65 years and older. Greater use of ACC and written action plans for older women with asthma may improve healthcare and outcomes for these women.
