Asthma is a serious global health issue and guidelines recommend a stepwise approach to management, with goals to achieve symptom control and minimise future risk. An accurate diagnosis and addressing comorbidities and triggers are important to effective asthma management, as well as early ICS preventer therapy for symptomatic patients. This presentation will provide an overview of the diagnostic approach, asthma phenotypes and pharmacological management of asthma from mild through to moderate-severe asthma, plus when and how to refer for consideration of biologic therapy.

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.

Learning outcomes
  • Understand the applications of the increasing diversity of asthma medications
  • Address comorbidities that may complicate asthma management
  • Adjust medication appropriately in asthma patients that remain symptomatic
