Bronchiectasis Action Plan

Bronchiectasis Action Plan

Children and young people with bronchiectasis can have an action plan. You and your doctor or another member of your child's health team can discuss this so that it's right for your child. It lists your child's daily treatment and steps to take if your child becomes unwell.

Note: The action plan refers to a change in the colour and amount of your child's spit (phlegm or sputum) as a sign your child is becoming unwell. But children are not always able to bring up phlegm or sputum. Usually the cough just sounds wetter.
