Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Lung Foundation Australia provided support for patients and carers impacted by a diagnosis of lung disease. We brought together key opinion leaders in respiratory medicine, physiotherapy, nursing and primary care to develop resources, training and education to help increase the awareness of maintaining good lung health, to help provide better disease management, and to help slow disease progression. We have continued to provide community education and operate a toll free patient information and support centre with a lung care nurse and a lung cancer care nurse.We continue to be supported by a wonderful group of both clinical and non-clinical volunteers, without whom Lung Foundation Australia would not be able to deliver its services and resources as effectively as we are able to do. We also continued to support research, develop education resources, train health professionals and undertake community awareness activities and advocacy around Australia.
