Asthma care in Australia is primarily managed by GPs. This module aims to support GPs in this role by providing information about asthma control in adults with a particular focus on those patients who are finding it difficult to control their symptoms. This may be due to the nature of the asthma itself, patient co-morbidities, the choice of medication and delivery system, or difficulties with adherence to treatment.By completing this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- Summarise the features of good and poor asthma control.
- Assess patient’s recent asthma symptom control using a validated test.
- Describe the step-up and step-down approach to asthma treatment
- Identify the various types of medicine and delivery systems for asthma.
- Evaluate adherence to these treatments and to asthma plans
The National Asthma Council Australia developed the content of these training modules independently. Publication was supported with a grant from Novartis.
