Reinforcing the Roles of Biologic Therapy and Interprofessional Care in Improving Patient Outcomes

Activity Overview

Asthma is a heterogeneous disease involving multiple inflammatory pathways. While many patients can be successfully treated, others suffer from severe or difficult-to-control disease, compounded by multiple atopic conditions, and a poor quality of life. In this interprofessional panel, experts will discuss the different phenotypes and endotypes of asthma, how they affect therapy, the role of biologics in the treatment of severe or uncontrolled asthma, impact comorbid atopy can have on management and quality of life, and how we can work together as a healthcare team to manage severe and difficult-to-treat asthma.
