Asthma Guideline


BTS and SIGN produced the first British Guideline for the management of asthma as a "Living Guideline" in 2001.  The latest edition of the BTS/SIGN guideline on the management of asthma (2014) is available now  - see links below.

The 2014 update includes a new section highlighting key recommendations for implementation (section 2), completely re-written sections on supported self management (section 4) and organisation and delivery of care (section 13), and an extensively revised section on non-pharmacological management. All other sections, with the exception of diagnosis and monitoring (section 3) and asthma in adolescents (section 10) have also been revised and updated to reflect new evidence that has become available.
