Recognition and Management of Severe Asthma
This program is based on the 2017 Recognition and Management of Severe Asthma: Canadian Thoracic Society Position Statement, supported by reviews and randomized controlled trials where available, and features expert opinion agreed upon by unanimous consensus of the position statement authors.
This one-hour accredited eCME, developed in collaboration with the Canadian Thoracic Society, is directed to health practitioners who diagnose, treat, and manage adults and children with severe asthma. The program features two cases, one adult and one pediatric, woven throughout that highlight key learning points.
This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC) of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the Canadian Thoracic Society. You may claim a maximum of 1 hour (credits are automatically calculated).
