The metered dose inhaler (MDI) is widely prescribed but not easy to use well. Every inhaler pack dispensed in the United Kingdom contains a printed patient information leaflet (PIL), written in English. The inability to read and understand this information could contribute to poor inhaler technique. Aims: a) To compare MDI technique in users.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
