NICE guideline on asthma
This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on NICE guideline 80, Asthma: diagnosis, monitoring and chronic asthma management.
The questions, written by Dr Kevin Gruffydd-Jones, relate to his expert article, Asthma: there is no single gold standard diagnostic test, which explains why NICE developed a guideline and summarises the recommendations on the diagnosis and management of asthma.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- identify options for objective diagnostic tests for asthma
- recall NICE recommendations on prescribing for patients with confirmed asthma
- know how to manage patients with uncontrolled asthma.
