This course is still available as a learning tool but has expired for CME credit.
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.
This activity is intended for allergists/immunologists, pulmonologists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare clinicians responsible for the care of patients with asthma.
- Review the pathophysiology of asthma and symptoms associated with disease progression.
- Examine the mechanism of action of targeted biologic therapies, and analyze their role in asthma treatment, including within special patient populations.
- Integrate patient communication and education strategies into personalized treatment plans in order to optimize outcomes in asthma management.
