Troubleshooting difficult asthma in adults: Module 2

  • : Sydney NSW 2000

About 5 to 20 per cent of asthma cases are considered treatment-resistant: poorly controlled despite maximal therapy. Developed by the National Asthma Council Australia, this activity explores methods of troubleshooting these difficult cases, focusing on issues of adherence, comorbidities and specialist referral.

On completion of this education activity participants will:

  • Recount a logical approach for troubleshooting when standard asthma treatments are not working.
  • Describe how a number of medical conditions may impact on asthma symptoms and management.
  • Name the common triggers of asthma episodes.
  • Describe the association between allergic rhinitis and asthma.
  • Identify asthma management strategies during pregnancy.
  • Outline the recommended medication and dosage adjustments for treatment-resistant asthma.
  • Recognise the indications where specialist referral is strongly recommended.



The National Asthma Council Australia developed the content of these training modules independently. Publication was supported with a grant from Novartis.
