GUIDELINES-BASED ASTHMA CARE

The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program's Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma (Focused Updates from the Expert Panel Working Group, Dec. 2020)

Asthma guidelines play an important role in guiding health care providers and patients by providing evidence-based recommendations for asthma management. The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) supports the development of clinical practice guidelines based on the best available science that specialists and health care providers can use to improve the care that patients receive.

Six Priority Messages

 

Our work involves training and technical support for health systems and community organizations to implement the NHLBI asthma guidelines.

 

These six components of guidelines-based asthma care involve a partnership between provider and patient, and incorporate education at all points of care.

With comprehensive implementation we seek to improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals and their families.
