1:00 p.m.–1:15 p.m.
Introduction & Opening Remarks
1:20 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
The Burden of Asthma
As reported by the CDC, asthma control in the United States is lacking. This presentation will discuss the socioeconomic burden of asthma in the US as well as the stressors on the healthcare system.
2:05 p.m.–2:45 p.m.
Update on Assessment & Diagnosis of Asthma
Accurate patient assessment is vital to determining an appropriate diagnosis of asthma.
2:50 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Pharmacologic Management for Asthma
To properly care for the patient with asthma, clinicians should be able to select the most appropriate medication and delivery device. This presentation will focus on the pharmacologic management of the patient with asthma.
3:30 p.m.–3:45 p.m.
3:45 p.m.–4:25 p.m.
Phenotyping for Asthma
The GINA guidelines suggest that patients with severe asthma may benefit from phenotyping. This presentation will define phenotyping and how this testing method can assist in the development of a treatment plan for severe asthma.
4:30 p.m.–5:10 p.m.
The Role of Biologics in the Treatment of Asthma
Not all patients with asthma respond to standard pharmacologic intervention. The evidence suggests that biologic agents may promote positive outcomes in these situations and increase quality of life.
