Program Overview

Expert faculty will analyze data from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology 2015 Annual Meeting and present it in a matter that will aid physicians in clinical decision-making and enhancing patient care. New treatment options for special populations of asthma patients, including aspirin-exacerbated asthmatics will be explored. The mechanism of action of biologic therapies, diagnostic techniques, and deep phenotyping will be discussed in order to create a more patient-centered and precision medicine approach to asthma management. This CME program will provide practitioners with the most up-to-date information regarding patient management care in asthma.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for allergists/immunologists, pulmonologists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare clinicians responsible for the care of patients with asthma.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the pathophysiology of asthma and symptoms associated with disease progression.
  2. Examine the mechanism of action of targeted biologic therapies, and analyze their role in asthma treatment, including within special patient populations.
  3. Integrate patient communication and education strategies into personalized treatment plans in order to optimize outcomes in asthma management.
