Abstract

Through effective communication, physicians and other health care providers can assist patients in successfully managing asthma. Clinicians in the role of a coach can help patients recognize the symptoms of an exacerbation, respond appropriately, and determine whether further care is necessary. Once clinicians have built a rapport with their patients, they can tailor an asthma plan to their patients' individual goals; specific objectives, including how to control environmental triggers, should be discussed at each visit.
