Respiratory Health Network

The Respiratory Health Network aims to improve health outcomes for people with respiratory conditions by enabling consumers and carers, health professionals, hospitals, health services and the Department of Health Western Australia to engage and collaborate effectively to facilitate health policy and increased coordination of care across the State.

Network lead and membership

The Network is led by Dr Li Ping Chung. She is supported by an Executive Advisory Group, which contains representatives from respiratory health care, community physiotherapy, general practice, non-government organisations related to respiratory health, and consumers.

Respiratory Health Policy position

The Respiratory Health Network recently completed a comprehensive analysis of community-based respiratory services in Western Australia. The Respiratory Health Policy Position (PDF 777KB) will be used to provide guidance on the commissioning of community-based respiratory health services as informed by the needs of the Western Australian population.


Asthma resources

Supporting resources include asthma action and discharge plans, toolkits, guidelines and fact sheets. 

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease resources

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) action plans provide guidance for the treatment of worsening of symptoms among people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – a combination of several different but related diseases which are primarily characterised by difficulty in breathing. Several additional resources for health professionals and patients are included, including an Indigenous COPD action plan.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation resources

Other respiratory resources

The Respiratory Health Network is involved in the development of  resources for a range of respiratory conditions, with the aim of providing a blueprint to achieve the highest possible standards of care for all Western Australians.
