  • Asthma Society of Canada - Asthma Society Applauds Ontario Legislature on Passage of Ryan's Law
    develop and maintain comprehensive asthma policies The Asthma Society of Canada has long advocated for health policies in every Province and Territory to address the issue of children being able to access their own asthma medications in schools In a 2011 study inconsistent policies were revealed in every province with School Boards having either no or conflicting policies with respect to asthma medications In the same year a patient survey revealed that 98 of parents of children with asthma had confidence in their child s abilities to use their medications appropriately It is essential that children with asthma have ready access to potentially life saving asthma medications while at school said Dr Robert Oliphant President CEO of the Asthma Society of Canada About 20 children die every year in Canada from asthma Ryan s Law helps schools work with parents and their children to ensure safe access to asthma medications when and where they are required There is no doubt that this new law will lessen the likelihood of a child dying from an asthma exacerbation while in an Ontario school Oliphant continued As we approach World Asthma Day on Tuesday May 5 th the Asthma Society congratulates Jeff Yurek MPP and thanks all Ontario MPP s for their support of this essential legislation which will now help children with asthma breathe safely at school and help their parents breathe easier knowing that their children s health is better protected Asthma continues to be a life threatening disease for many Canadian children and adults Ensuring quick and timely access to their medications as well as allergy and friendly environments in schools will help children both feel safe and be safe while learning playing and enjoying activities with their friends concluded Oliphant For more information Organization Asthma Society of Canada www
