On Demand ARC Webinar: How to convert 'Reactive to Proactive' asthma management

In association with Sandoz, we are delighted to be hosting this webinar series on asthma care

In the second of our new series of insightful webinars, Frances Barrett will share how to convert 'Reactive to Proactive' asthma management.

Learning outcomes for this webinar will include;

  • Asthma 'a long term condition' - what does this mean?
  • Education before medication - asthma's underlying pathophysiology is inflammation - like a rumbling volcano - how should this be addressed long term?
  • Safe and effective asthma management - dampening down the underlying 'volcanic' inflammation - to help prevent an eruption
  • Aim to keep our asthma patients away from the 'Cliff Edge' and STOP chasing symptoms by using a 'finger in the dyke' approach - which signifies DANGER
  • Understand why SABAs are 'Blue light' emergency medications and not asthma 'management medication'
  • Support asthma patients to be symptom free  - unchain them - set them free


This non-promotional webinar has been sponsored by Sandoz who have had no editorial input into the presentation. At the end of the webinar, there will be a short promotional session from Sandoz.
