The Centre of Excellence in Severe Asthma is hosting a Severe Asthma Workshop at the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR) Congress 2017, in Sydney.
Severe asthma remains a major clinical challenge. Further the landscape of severe asthma management is rapidly changing, as more precise phenotyping and new targeted therapies are introduced into practice. This workshop will provide detailed and practical information about how to assess severe asthma, optimize treatment and options available for disease management. Topics will include assessment, adherence, self-management, optimization of therapy, co-morbidities, targeted therapies for treatment and case studies. It will be relevant to a wide range of professionals including physicians and trainees, nurses, allied health professional and researchers. The programme will enhance clinicians’ practice and enable delivery of the latest evidenced-based health care to improve outcomes for this patient group.
