Asthma Guidelines for 2018

There has been some controversy around the Asthma guidance which NICE published for the first time at the end of November 2017. You can find the new guidance here.

One of our tutors Andrew Booth has written the attached article which highlights the subtle differences between these new NICE guidelines and the BTS/SIGN guidelines currently used by the majority of us in practice.

A similar discussion was had in the December 2017 issues of Practice Nurse.
