A new video specifically for secondary students has been produced by Asthma Australia in collaboration with a focus group of teachers and students.  Between Life and Breath shows a series of incidents around an adolescent male student with asthma, some occurring at school. The seriousness of asthma is highlighted and decision making around medication management is explored.

The video is available in combination with a set of teacher guidelines to help maximise education outcomes.  Although there is a clear emphasis on asthma, the impacts explored in the video are applicable to chronic medical conditions generally.  Themes also explore positive and negative interactions between students, allowing for robust discussion on student behaviour and its social and emotional impacts.
