The diagnosis of asthma is challenging in children, more so in children under the age of 5. The ERS has recently published a guideline document for the diagnosis of asthma in children 5-16 years of age. The suggested diagnostic pathways and availability of diagnostic and may not be universally available at varying levels of care in both high-income countries and low-to-middle income countries. In this webinar we will discuss the current guidelines and their translation into practice at various levels of care to provide an evidence-based recommendation of translation of the guidelines into clinical practice.
The audience will gain updated knowledge on:
- The practical translation of the asthma guidelines for children
- Applicability of the guidelines at varying levels of the healthcare system and in less resourced settings
- Implications of the guidelines for clinical asthma research
Challenges in diagnosis of asthma in children and translation of guidelines into clinical care
In this webinar two speakers from ERS and PATS will discuss challenges in diagnosis of asthma in children, with a specific reference to the ERS guidelines for diagnosis of asthma in children and limitations of this in daily clinical practice. The webinar will be interactive by including voting questions in the presentations and by promoting an active Q&A session.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to know the latest the asthma guidelines with regards to asthma diagnosis in children.
This webinar is organised directly by the Pan African Thoracic Society (PATS). For any questions including registration, technical and log in details, please contact PATS directly in this link.
