Asthma is a common, chronic, and heterogeneous disease that can result in poor quality of life and severe, life-threatening exacerbations despite standard controller therapy. In this activity, based on a recent live virtual symposium, our experts explain the advances in understanding of the pathogenesis of asthma. Our unique “How I Think, How I Treat” educational format offers a personal look at the way these experts apply evidence-based guidelines and translate new data to diagnose, assess, and treat their patients with uncontrolled, moderate to severe asthma effectively, with a goal of preserving lung function and improving quality of life. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Assess severity of disease in pediatric and adult patients with uncontrolled, moderate to severe asthma, including evaluation of medication adherence; Identify pediatric and adult patients with uncontrolled, moderate to severe asthma who might be eligible for treatment with biologic therapy by testing for endotype/biomarkers (eg, IgE, eosinophils, FeNO); and Develop treatment plans for patients with uncontrolled, moderate to severe asthma based on the latest clinical evidence and guidelines, as well as other factors such as disease severity, comorbidities, exacerbation risk, and patient/caregiver preferences and goals.
