Asthma: an update on current treatment guidelines

07 Oct 2019
CLINICAL THEATRE
Asthma is a common condition affecting 5.4 million people in the UK, but despite the availability of effective treatments, and two similar, but contrasting guidelines (BTS/SIGN and NICE), asthma is not under control with nearly 1,500 deaths in 2017. There were particular concerns highlighted in the 2014 National Review of Asthma Deaths, that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are well placed to identify and manage, including poor adherence to preventer inhalers and overuse of reliever inhalers This session will provide an overview of the key management issues to help pharmacy staff optimise asthma management in primary and secondary care.
Speakers
Mrs Lynn Elsey, Lead Respiratory/ Severe Asthma Pharmacist - Wythenshawe Hospital
