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.
