In- and outpatient management of asthma is complex and costly. Alternative healthcare settings can help decrease the severity and frequency of exacerbations of asthma through guided pharmacological therapy and reinforced patient and family education. A comprehensive disease management plan integrates patient information, clinical guidelines, and educational outcomes to improve health status and reduce costs. Healthcare professionals can improve the lives of patients with asthma through education by teaching daily management of their disease and avoidance of long-term problems.


The goal of this continuing education program is to describe how healthcare professionals can implement a comprehensive disease management program for patients with asthma. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Evaluate the type and severity of asthma symptoms
  • Discuss the impact of unmanaged asthma on the U.S. economy
  • Explain the four components of a comprehensive disease management program for asthma
  • Discuss healthcare professionals’ role in helping patients successfully manage asthma
