What you'll learn in this expert session

This course provides practical advice for health professionals wanting to translate the latest asthma management guidelines into effective and realistic clinical practice.

New options for treating asthma are good news for patients but can sometimes prove a challenge for treating clinicians. Which patient needs which treatment and when - is a frequent question posed by health professionals. In addition, clarity is often sought as to when triple therapy should be started, how treatment can be intensified and importantly, what are the risks and benefits of the different combinations? In this presentation, asthma expert, Professor Christine Jenkins will provide practical answers to some of the more common questions Australian health professionals have about the role of triple therapy in treating this very common condition.
