  • Overview

    Patients with severe asthma account for a higher percentage of asthma-related morbidity and 50% of asthma-related costs. Unfortunately, a fair amount of these patients are managed with oral corticosteroids, despite the warnings and adverse events. The discussion will focus on the challenges encountered with oral corticosteroids and approaches to consider to improve the care of severe asthma patients.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Recognize the common challenges encountered with managing oral corticosteroid-dependent asthma.
    • Determine appropriate strategies to improve care for patients in this population.
  • Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest

    CHEST remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any relevant financial relationships that create a conflict of interest. It is not the intent of CHEST to disqualify anyone from participating in this educational activity, but to resolve any conflicts of interest that may arise from financial relationships with commercial interests. All conflicts of interest are reviewed by the educational activity course director/chair, the Education Committee, and/or the Professional Standards Committee to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved. CHEST educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science. Through our review process, all CHEST CME activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. Disclosure of any or no relevant financial relationships will be made available on-site during all educational activities.
