The goal of this program is to provide instruction on the practical application of the NAEPP* Expert Panel Report-3 2007 Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma and demonstrate practical methods for patient education in the primary care practice.

Educational Objectives:
After completing this program participants should be able to:

  • Apply the clinical guidelines to assess a patient’s asthma severity and prescribe treatment
  • Assess and monitor a patient’s level of asthma control and adjust treatment as needed
  • Identify methods to educate patients in asthma self-management
  • Implement policies for a team approach in managing asthma in the primary care practice

NJ providers who complete the one-hour online program can order this free set of materials while supplies last.

*National Asthma Education and Prevention Program

Due to an ongoing, IRB approved study sponsored by the Department of Health, we are only able to provide this toolkit to primary care providers in a medical practice setting.
