The U.S. National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) published an "Asthma Guideline Update" in 2020. The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) develops resources such as evidence-based strategy documents and pocket guides for asthma management that are updated each year (most recently in 2020). The European Respiratory Society (ERS), in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society (ATS), published guidelines for severe asthma in 2019. This would be the first session at the ATS International Conference to include presentations from all three different guideline committees for asthma.
CME credits and/or Certificates of Completion are not provided for this session.
