Ragweed season is the time of year many of your patients may dread, and it’s likely your patients are seeking relief from their itchy eyes, runny noses and other symptoms. And, as kids head back to school, they may be experiencing more asthma episodes. It can be a busy time for allergists.
The College has resources for allergists during this busy time.
- Consider utilizing the College’s Severe Asthma Decision-making Toolkits for adults and children. The toolkits help you have an informed discussion on asthma treatments with patients.
- Consult our Practice Parameters on asthma, immunotherapy and rhinitis.
- Our Asthma & Allergy Awareness Toolkit has tools for you to connect with your community through videos, flyers, social media posts and more!
- Listen to AllergyTalk, our podcast that reviews AllergyWatch articles. The March, 2021 episode covers asthma severity and difficulty learning to read and the Sept. 29, 2020 episode discusses mucus viscosity, among other allergy-related topics.
- Try MicroCME: get valuable information in about 30 minutes. Try SCIT or SLIT: No One Option is Perfect or Chronic Rhinosinusitis Causes, Contributing Factors, and Evaluation of the Patient.
- Direct your patients to the College’s redesigned public website, where they will find sections devoted to seasonal allergies, children & asthma and children & allergies. Patients also may find our interactive, shared decision-making tools helpful when discussing treatment options with you.
Now is a great time to use College resources to promote your practice, expand your knowledge and help your patients find relief!
