Asthma: are you practicing evidence-based medicine?

In this webinar, Richard Beasley will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of asthma following a stepwise algorithm. 

Management of treatable traits is crucial to good management.  The New Zealand and international GINA asthma guidelines make evidence-based recommendations for the treatment of asthma in adolescents and adults. 

The priority is to implement the recommendations in clinical practice to ensure that patients in NZ receive evidence-based management.
