The purpose of the Asthma Care Quick Reference Guide is to improve the quality of care and outcomes for people who have asthma by providing health care providers with the tools and information they need to carry out each of the key steps in appropriately diagnosing, treating, and providing long-term follow-up to people with asthma. The Guide puts at clinicians' fingertips the most salient information they need to diagnosis, treat, and monitor their patients' asthma and provide state-of-the-art care. Its streamlined easy use format provides condensed charts and bulleted lists that present a detailed yet readable summary of the current clinical recommendations from the Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma, along with practical tips for educating patients.
