125691 - The Challenge of Symptomatic Asthma in Adults – New Approaches for GP’s

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

One in nine Australians suffers from asthma, making asthma one of the most common chronic diseases in Australia, as well as a National Health Priority Area. 
Despite having a better understanding of the disease, and access to international and national guidelines to help optimise asthma management and improve patient outcomes, asthma is still poorly controlled. 
Assessment of asthma control involves assessing both recent symptom control and future risk of adverse outcomes.

Learning outcomes
  • Appreciate the prevalence and health risks of symptomatic asthma among adults in Australia.
  • Identify symptomatic patients using validated tools
  • Recommend non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment strategies for patients who remain symptomatic despite appropriate ICS/LABA use
  • Discuss the evidence for tiotropium in the management of people with symptomatic asthma, and the device approved for this indication
