A special supplement on asthma and COPD has been published with the June 2019 60th anniversary issue of MIMS.

Asthma and COPD are common respiratory diseases affecting millions of people worldwide. Although there are some similarities between the two, asthma and COPD have many differences, including aetiology, symptoms, and underlying mechanisms, which inform their clinical management.

The MIMS supplement covers:

  • Diagnosis
  • Pharmacological and non-pharmacological management
  • Management of COPD exacerbations
  • Follow-up
  • Importance of inhaler choice

The supplement is worth 1 CPD credit towards appraisal and revalidation. Claim your printed copy with the June issue of MIMS or download a digital version below.
