  1. Apply current management guidelines to diagnose asthma correctly, optimize inhaled therapy, address comorbidities, and recognize when asthma is not well controlled. 

  2. Review evidence related to potential long-term effects of oral corticosteroids and assess their role in asthma management in the era of biologic therapies. 

  3. Identify key features of moderate to severe asthma that are targets for biologic therapies.
