Third in a series of five of the Greener Practice webinars. Reducing the Environmental Impact of Inhaler Prescribing.
Inhalers for asthma and COPD have a disproportionate climate impact due to the propellant gases found in metered dose inhalers. In this webinar James Smith MRCGP FFPH will examine current inhaler prescribing patterns and why changing these in the UK is so important in our efforts to address climate change.
He will discuss what actions GPs can undertake to address this at the individual, practice and CCG level. He will also reflect on the media response to the paper he published with colleagues on this subject in 2019 and consider how this might inform our future actions.
