The SCORxE best practices for the management of asthma offers South Carolina providers unbiased, evidence-based clinical information to assist in making optimal treatment decisions. Please review each of the materials included under the "Documents to Complete CME Activity" section of the page.

At the completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  1. Classify asthma severity based on impairment and future risk to select optimal medications for appropriate asthma management.
  2. Assess level of control at every follow-up visit and step medication treatment up or down as needed based on level of control.
  3. Use a written Asthma Action Plan for patient self-management and engage patients in monitoring asthma control based on symptoms, peak flow readings or a combination of both.
  4. Screen for non-adherence, improper inhalation technique and lack of trigger control before adjusting therapy at follow-up visits.
