On Demand Webinar: Keeping people with asthma safe

Role of the post attack review

Watch our on demand webinar: Keeping people with asthma safe: role of the post attack review

Please note: Participation in Q&A and Polls features are not available when viewing on demand webinars, and the PCRS Membership offer is only available to those who attended the live webinar.

This talk starts with the assertion that an asthma attack signals a failure of management of the person's asthma. The post-attack review is an opportunity to i) ensure the attack has resolved and act on this; and ii) that this is an opportunity to identify any modifiable risk factors and optimise care. Attendees will learn about assessing current asthma control and modifiable risk factors - the two domains of asthma control initially recommended by GINA a decade ago. Discussion will be supported by evidence from the NRAD and GINA 2020 ( Attendees will benefit most if they read the NRAD and GINA booklets on asthma and severe asthma (both available free from in advance.
