Community Pediatric Asthma Service

  • With so much information coming to us about the COVID-19 virus, our health professionals have gathered COVID-19 links that contain reliable, medically accurate information as provided by Alberta Health Services and medical professionals. 
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure our patients' health and safety, effective immediately, all of our Calgary and area Asthma Education appointments will be telephone appointments until further notice.  Please download your Patient Telephone Appointment package below.

Our Mission

At The Community Pediatric Asthma Service, our mission is to provide asthma education to pediatric asthma patients and their families in and around Calgary.  Our community outreach, health care provider education and website exist to help children with asthma manage their health and take control of their asthma, allowing them to lead full, active and normal lives. 

 

You may be referred to us for asthma education by:

  • your family physician or pediatrician
  • your community pharmacist
  • an Emergency Department or Urgent Care Centre if you have an asthma emergency, or
  • the Asthma Clinic at the Alberta Children's Hospital

We Believe:

  • asthma should not stop you from doing anything you want to do
  • you and your family are important partners in managing your health and taking control of your asthma
  • we are successful when you or your child can say "I can control my asthma now!" (iCAN)

More than 3 million Canadians of all ages have asthma, but the good news is that asthma can be treated and well controlled.  This means it doesn't have to interfere with you or your child's daily life.
