Reason for withdrawal from publication

This review has been withdrawn as the search is out of date. Written action plans are now viewed as a component of asthma self-management rather than a standalone intervention. Guidelines recommend that asthma self-management education involves education about asthma medication and use of inhalers, prevention of symptoms and attacks, self-management, monitoring and control of asthma and regular practitioner review in addition to a written action plan (GINA).
