Despite the dramatic increase in asthma prevalence over the past few decades in both children and adults, delays in asthma diagnosis are common, leading to poor control. Join expert faculty as they review how the heterogeneous nature of the disease impacts the diagnosis, assessment, and management of asthma. Recognize the strengths and limitations of current guideline recommendations, and review the available and emerging pharmacologic treatments for asthma in order to control the disease. Lastly, appropriate use of each inhaler class will be demonstrated.
Accurately diagnose asthma and assess severity, taking into account the heterogeneous disease state, in order to improve patient health outcomes and reduce the high burden of disease
Select effective pharmacotherapy regimens based on disease severity, sub-type, phenotype, or endotype and use a stepwise approach for long-term control and management of asthma
Review asthma self-management including proper inhaler use and technique to ensure correct delivery of medication and improved health outcomes
