The Multidisciplinary Asthma Service (MDAS) Clinic is for those children whose asthma has a history of being more difficult to control, or for those who are on high levels of asthma treatment. This clinic will replace your usual Alder Hey asthma clinic until further notice.
During the MDAS clinic your child will be reviewed by the entire multidisciplinary team which includes;
As there are a lot of professionals who wish to see you, you should expect to be in clinic for up to at least one hour. We understand this is a long appointment but it does reduce the need to come to the hospital multiple times to see the different team members.
We are keen to address the needs of young people attending our MDAS clinic and help provide them with the opportunity to develop increasing responsibility for their own asthma management.
Our aim is that by the time they are ready to leave Alder Hey to transfer to the adult service in their 17th year they will have developed independence and confidence in discussing asthma and any other health-related issues. For these reasons after their 14th birthday we will see them on their own for the first part of the consultation but we will always see their parent/carer as well before the end of the clinic.
Unlike other asthma clinic appointments, we may not come up with a plan straight away. We will discuss your child’s asthma management as a team and develop an agreed plan together. We hope that with a team approach, involving you and your child, we can achieve better control of their condition.
