new nurse setting up asthma clinics experienced help appreciated.

I am also tasked with setting up asthma clinics and am new to asthma, currently completing the asthma diploma at NRTC but really looking forward to the challenge.

I work in a prison setting and have to set up 2 clinics one for men and one for women. Whether because of where I work or the fact that I am not contacting the right people I am having difficult getting information, products, product info, some drug companies have not even returned my calls, setting up advice anything. I have a larger than average population of asthmatics most of which have never heard of an asthma review let alone anything proper nursing care and support and taking responsibility for their own health,and would be grateful for anything or any advice information difficulties solutions etc etc that anyone can give.

Thankyou for your time.

vonney please tell me how you fared.
