After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:
- Review how the varying inflammatory profiles of the different asthma phenotypes can inform the development of new treatments for severe uncontrolled asthma
- Evaluate the usefulness of phenotypic- or endotypic-specific biomarkers in diagnosing, classifying, and controlling severe uncontrolled asthma
- Develop treatment plans individualized for each patient with severe asthma accounting for specific patient factors, current evidence-based guidance, and the clinical profiles of current treatments
This initiative is designed to meet the educational needs of pulmonologists, allergists, immunologists, ENTs and primary care physicians who are involved in the healthcare of patients with moderate-to-severe asthma..
