Asthma is a common, chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways associated with pronounced health and economic consequences.
Consistent and effective education that promotes an active partnership with patients remains the cornerstone for managing asthma.
Identification and control of asthma triggers, regular monitoring of lung function, and adequate pharmacologic therapy are three other critical components.
In this article, we describe several practical considerations for developing a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to asthma care that emphasizes patient education and strengthens the partnership between patients and health-care professionals.
