Asthma guidance conversation

Posted on: 2 May 2018
 

The British Thoracic Society (BTS) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) published their asthma guidelines in September 2016. This was followed in November 2017 by the publication of NICE guideline NG80 – Asthma: diagnosis, monitoring and chronic asthma management.

Discrepancies between the two guidelines have introduced uncertainty for clinicians and inconsistencies in the care of individual patients.

This video is a follow-on from the Asthma Guidance articles also found on this site. GP Steve Holmes and Practice Nurse Carol Stonham discuss the guidelines, including practical implications for primary care clinicians. They compare the processes used by NICE and BTS/SIGN, reflect on the various recommendations, and offer practical advice from PCRS.
