GRAHAM K CROMPTON

Why I am part of ADMIT? What I try to achieve with ADMIT?
“It is a tragedy that, through no fault of their own, many patients are unable to obtain full benefit from inhalers as they cannot them correctly.
The first paper I published pointing out that many patient cannot use a pressurised metered dose inhaler was in 1976. This message was repeated in many of my subsequent publications but was completely unheeded. A quarter of a century after my first paper I could see no improvement in the number of patients able to use inhalers correctly. Following retirement from UK National Health Service I was therefore delighted to be asked to chair ADMIT as this allowed me to continue in my quest to improve inhalation therapy for millions of patients with airways disease not able to obtain full benefit from their prescribed therapy because of their inability to use inhalers correctly.”

THOMAS HAUSEN

Why I am part of ADMIT? What I try to achieve with ADMIT?
“Two reasons enhanced my participation to ADMIT: first referring to the patients: I wish to raise interest for their illness, to improve understanding and acceptance of their illness, to raise the understanding of the necessity of the therapy, to improve the handling of therapy, in particular the correct inhalation and to improve compliance by better understanding the need for therapy.
Second reason is referring to the doctors, in particular to GP´s but pneumologists too, I wish to support them by the choice of the correct device, to choose the best substance, to inform and find out correct inhalation technique for better education of the patients.”

Why I am part of ADMIT? What I try to achieve with ADMIT?
“Along the last 25 years the treatment of Asthma has been steadily improving to the point that we are now convinced that Asthma control is an attainable goal to reach. The clinical reality is, however, deceiving: too many patients bear up their asthma with frequent and troublesome symptoms. In a sizeable portion of these Asthma patients, the lack of control can be attributed to faulty aerosol inhalation technique. Both, patients and physicians, may be blamed for this failure.
The reason for me to join ADMIT is to collaborate in improving the use of medical aerosols and thus the treatment of Asthma and COPD, by optimising and disseminating the use of available drugs in these ailments.”
