The first activity, designed as an expert-guided poster tour, will briefly review the underlying mechanisms of SA. Subsequently, you will attend a live expert roundtable where faculty will discuss evolving management approaches, including the use of newer agents that target inflammatory mediators of disease. During the final activity you will participate in interactive case studies, applying information acquired to real-time management decisions. You don’t want to miss this!
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of clinical immunologists/allergists, pulmonologists, and other specialist clinicians involved in the treatment of patients with severe asthma.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe key pathophysiologic processes in severe asthma development and persistence, including the roles of thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) and implications for treatment
- Discuss the clinical profiles and recent trial results with newer biologic therapies for severe asthma
- Construct biologic-based treatment regimens for patients with severe asthma to maximize asthma control, prevent exacerbations, and incorporate shared clinical decision making
