Paediatric asthma: breathing new life into diagnosis and management
Could you be missing important differences between diagnosing and managing asthma in preschool and school-age children, and how children's asthma differs from that of adults?
Start: 2 March 2020
Recent discussion in the media of new treatment options for asthma has highlighted the complexity of managing this common condition.
This educational visit provides clarity on the latest guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of paediatric asthma, including the differences between diagnosing and managing asthma in preschool and school-age children, and how children’s asthma differs from that of adults.
Discussion will also cover when regular preventer treatment is required and how to optimise different preventer options for the two age groups.
Educational visits are available as:
- One-on-one discussion: a 30-minute in-practice discussion for GPs, tailored to individual learning needs.
- Virtual visit: via video call for GPs who find it difficult to schedule an in-practice visit.
- Small-group: a 1-hour in-practice meeting for up to 10 health professionals (GPs, pharmacists and nurses).
