The goal of this online activity is to improve pharmacists’ ability to make informed decisions regarding the management of medication needs of patients with asthma based on current practice guidelines. Pharmacists need to be educated about this respiratory disease to recommend appropriate interventions and provide patient education and monitoring. The speakers for this webinar intend to provide their hands-on experience that can be translated into daily practice.
These experts will discuss evidence-based care plan development for patients with asthma, current evidence for novel inhalers, and strategies to educate patients to use proper inhaler techniques for new devices.
After participating in "Pharmacy's Role in the Management of Asthma (Home Study)", the pharmacist will be able to:
1. Summarize evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of asthma.
2. Given patient cases, develop evidence-based care plans for patients with asthma.
3. Identify novel medications and inhalers available for the treatment of asthma.
4. Explain strategies on how to educate patients on the proper use of inhalers, including how to identify and correct errors.
