Insights into the pathophysiology of asthma have brought about new treatment options for uncontrolled disease that are based on specific asthma phenotypes and inflammatory pathways. In this activity, NPs and PAs will be presented with an interactive case of a patient with uncontrolled asthma, and be challenged to identify her asthma phenotype, adjust her pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management, and work collaboratively to keep her in the "green zone" of her asthma action plan.
Interactive video lecture
After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Recognize phenotypic variations and subtypes that can characterize uncontrolled asthma
- Identify indications for add-on biologic therapy based on disease- and patient-centered factors
- Implement techniques to increase treatment adherence for improved patient outcomes
