This CME program was derived from content presented at the Eastern Pulmonary Conference 2019 Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Florida. The expert faculty, Dr. Sidney Braman, will review the pathophysiology and disease burden of asthma to improve patient management. Next, he will delve into the subtypes of asthma and analyze clinical data of novel pharmacotherapies to determine treatment efficacy. Dr. Braman will also analyze the creation and implementation of treatments plans with the interprofessional team to emphasize patient adherence. Upon completion of this CME activity, learners will gain further insight into the emerging pharmacotherapies of asthma for effective patient treatment and management.
