Short Course in the Clinical Management of Respiratory Disease - E-learning

Interests: Clinical Management / Asthma / Management


“The prevalence of asthma in South Africa is high and asthma is a common condition. We should expect then that it would be familiar to the medical profession and well managed and controlled. However, many surveys of asthma care have been published from around the world (including South Africa). They suggest that in total only 5% of asthmatics are meeting the ‘goals of asthma management’ as set out in guidelines. Despite availability of useful asthma therapies and treatment strategies the morbidity from asthma remains significant.” Robin J Green, Associate Professor, Department of Paediatrics, University of Pretoria.
