The Centre of Excellence in Severe Asthma will conduct research studies and communicate new findings. We will provide a platform for updated treatment guidelines, practical tools and checklists and recommendations to healthcare professionals involved in severe asthma management.
We published a 2-part series on How to Treat Severe Asthma, in The Australian Doctor in September 2016, authored by Steven Maltby, Peter Gibson, Joerg Mattes and Vanessa McDonald.
Access to these articles is free for Australian Registered Practitioners. The series includes 1) an overview of severe asthma, including aetiology, epidemiology and pathophysiology, detailed recommendations on 2) diagnosis, 3) management and a 4) future perspective. Each article also includes representative case studies and quizzes.
