This CPD activity consists of 7 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on choosing the appropriate inhaler device for your patient—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.
The MCQs, written by Jane Scullion, relate to the Guidelines for Nurses articles Device selection in children and adults and Striking a balance: device choice and therapeutic dosages. These questions have been developed for your CPD.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- recall important factors to consider when prescribing an inhaler device
- discuss what inhaler to prescribe for children under 5 years of age
- identify drug classes of inhaled therapies.
