2704: Lessons Learned from Severe Asthma Clinics: An Interdisciplinary Approach

February 27, 2021

Academic centers across the country have established multidisciplinary asthma clinics, often employing the combined care of allergists and pulmonologists, to treat patients with severe and difficult-to-treat asthma. Access to such programs is not available to all patients and providers, but they can all equally benefit from the strategies derived from these programs. In this seminar, the management of severe asthma will be addressed with a focus on interdisciplinary partnerships, while highlighting the important role of the allergist in asthma care. In addition, novel approaches to the treatment of severe asthma will be detailed, including a precision medicine approach to biologics, the incorporation of technology into patient care, the recognition of psychosocial influences, and the evaluation of comorbid and asthma mimicking conditions.


Credit claiming for this activity will be available through December 31, 2021. Requests to claim credit on or after January 1, 2022 will be subject to an administrative fee.
