Program Summary:

Asthma is one of the most common chronic health conditions; it is estimated that over 7 million children (9.5% of all children) are believed to currently have the condition. It accounts for more than 1.3 million ambulatory visits to office-based physicians, and 1.8 million visits to the emergency room. In 2008, asthma accounted for an estimated 14.4 million lost school days; therefore, once a child is diagnosed with asthma, the goal of therapy is to reduce wheeze and cough, reduce the risk and number of acute exacerbations, and minimize adverse effects of treatments, sleep disturbances, and absences from school. Symptoms vary widely, therefore asthma must be distinguished from other causes of respiratory illness.

As an introductory webinar for the Enduring CME materials from the 2017 AAE annual conference, we will be going over why asthma is so challenging. Asthma is a current and continuing major problem, let’s talk about asthma management guidelines as well as how to diagnose.

This course will provide specific strategies and resources to assist physician learners to develop collaborative care plans with asthma patients to develop an asthma action plan that encourages adherence.
