This case illustrates the importance of matching the inhaler device to suit the patient, directly assessing the patient’s use of the inhaler device and apportioning time in good inhaler technique in improving asthma control. The case explores factors other than medication that may be leading to poor asthma control.
After completion of the module participants should be able to:
1. Identify reasons for poor asthma control in patients
2. Appreciate the importance of checking inhaler technique and training for proper inhaler use
3. Understand the importance of observational studies
