Implementing guideline-based strategies to improve adherence in asthma patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Despite effective treatments, many people with asthma continue to have functional impairments, require emergency room care or hospitalization and even die unnecessarily from their disease. Being adherent with asthma medication, particularly inhaled corticosteroids, improves outcomes. Providers can help those with asthma be more adherent by providing education and ongoing support.
