American Academy of Family Physicians
Family physicians know that asthma can become a burden for patients and their families. Often, it seems that the bulk of the visits with patients who have asthma and parents of children who have asthma are spent urging them to make lifestyle changes, including taking medications that will result in improved outcomes and, in turn, help them feel better. But what changes can you make in your practice to improve outcomes? METRIC aims to help you identify changes-big or small-in your practice that will make life better for you and your patients who have asthma.
