Step Up Care for Childhood Asthma - The Pediatric Asthma Yardstick
Price: FREE for members and non-members
It can be challenging to treat pediatric asthma patients – although tools are available to help children (and families) track and manage day-to-day symptoms, when and how to implement a longer-term step-up in care is less clear. That’s why the College published the Pediatric Asthma Yardstick in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. It provides an in-depth assessment of when and how to step-up therapy for children with poorly-controlled asthma. Like all the College’s Yardsticks, our Pediatric Asthma Yardstick includes patient profiles and step-up strategies based on current guidance documents but modified according to newer data and the authors' combined clinical experience.

Join two of the Pediatric Asthma Yardstick’s lead authors, Bradley Chipps, MD, FACAAI, and Leonard Bacharier, MD, FACAAI, as they explain how to use this tool to get an understanding of the evaluation and treatment of asthma in three childhood age ranges (adolescence: 12–18 years old, school age: 6–11 years old and young children: ≤5 years old). Get practical and clinically-relevant recommendations for each step-up and intervention and walk away being able to better care for your patients.
