Manage episode 156484499 series 1190964
Current Guidelines conclude that enlisting greater numbers of primary care clinicians to improve access to quality care will help people gain control of their asthma and allergy, thusly improving patients' quality of life. This activity was developed based on the current recommendations and guidelines issued by national organizations, and is designated to close gaps in knowledge, awareness, attitudes, and decision-making patterns related to the treatment and referral of patients with asthma and allergy.
Presenting this Prova Education Live Event is Dr. Michael Wechsler, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Associate Director of the Brigham and Women's Hospital Asthma Research Center.
This is Part 1 of a lecture in two parts.
