Price: FREE for members and non-members
Session recorded on April 18, 2023
Speaker: Len Bacharier, MD
SMART (Single Maintenance and Reliever Therapy) allows people with asthma to use just one medication for both maintenance and reliever therapy. Both NAEPP and GINA guidelines identify the role of this therapy in asthma management. Despite this, many providers are unfamiliar with the basis of this recommendation or how to implement it. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to implement MART in patients with asthma and how to develop action plans using MART.
Viewers can earn credit by completing the posttest questions.
