Advances in the Management of Difficult-to-Treat Asthma

Advances in the Management of Difficult-to-Treat Asthma
This multidisciplinary, virtual roundtable brings together clinicians and a patient to discuss clinical aspects of care in people with asthma.

Available credits: 0.50

Time to complete: 30 minutes


Valid until:

  • Overview

    The management of severe asthma has changed drastically after the introduction of biologics. However, their introduction comes with many questions, such as, When should they be used and in whom? This Care Team ForumSM brings pulmonologists and an allergist/immunologist in dialogue with a patient about the immunologic underpinning of asthma pathology and how it relates to identifying patients appropriate for step-up care with biologics.
