In patients with asthma, what is the effect of continued multidisciplinary education compared to a single instruction session on symptom management with inhalers?
Asthma is becoming increasingly prevalent in the world today because of the rise in environmental pollution, genetic prevalence, and allergies. According to the World Health Organization (2021), it is estimated that in 2019 there were 262 million people affected by asthma. With an increase in the number of people being affected by this disease, more patients are prescribed at-home symptom management through inhaler devices. The complication found with this is that patients are not getting adequate education, which results in improper administration of the medication leading to unrelieved symptoms. The aim of conducting this research is to assess current evidence on which patient education techniques are most effective.
