Severe asthma: recognising and referring patients in the biologic treatment era (Presented by Royal Cornwall Hospital)
We are delighted to be hosting multiple educational events on severe asthma developed by the South West Severe Asthma Network, supported by West of England and South West AHSNs.
In this event you will learn more about identifying patients with Severe Asthma to help facilitate referrals for potentially life changing treatment. We will cover diagnosing asthma, the impact of uncontrolled asthma, how to identify patients with uncontrolled asthma and why and where to refer.
People living with severe asthma face many challenges; they may have a lowered quality of life, have an increased risk of mortality and are at a greater risk of avoidable comorbidities. Their symptoms may also go undiagnosed for many years. Diagnosis and treatment can transform patient lives by reducing asthma attacks, asthma-related hospital admissions and long-term side-effects of other treatments.
This educational event will be repeated several times throughout September, and will be delivered by partners across the South West region. This particular educational event will be presented by Royal Cornwall Trust. To sign up, please complete the form below. You will need to select the date of the webinar that you would like to attend. Please note, all educational events present the same information and you do not need to attend more than one.
A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to support revalidation evidence.
