Start the activity on Guidelines Learning

This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on diagnosis, management, and treatment of people who may have asthma—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

The questions, written by Dr Honor Merriman, GP and CPD tutor relate to Professor Hilary Pinnock’s article, A structured approach is key to diagnosing asthma, which covers the 2016 update to the BTS/SIGN British guideline on the management of asthma  and explains how it offers a pragmatic approach to the diagnosis, management, and treatment of people who may have asthma.

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • discuss the updated recommendations on diagnosing asthma, and what the structured clinical assessment should include
  • recall the diagnostic tests and when to use them
  • explain the management of asthma in adults and children
  • know when to refer the patient to specialist care.
