In 2019, the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) recommended landmark changes in asthma management. This international panel of experts no longer recommend treating adults and adolescents with asthma with short-acting bronchodilators alone. Instead, they should receive symptom-driven prescriptions (in mild asthma) or use a daily corticosteroid-containing inhaler, to reduce the risk of severe exacerbation. How do you help patients navigate this important paradigm shift in asthma management? This educational event is sponsored by Astra Zeneca through an unrestricted educational grant.
