We have great pleasure in drawing your attention to several publications on asthma control in primary care that you may find useful.
1. Firstly, just published, a peer-reviewed article by IPCRG authors
Can asthma control be improved by understanding the patients perspective?
Rob Horne, David Price, Jen Cleland, Rui Costa, Donna Covey, Kevin Gruffydd-Jones, John Haughney, Svein Hoegh Henrichsen, Alan Kaplan, Arnulf Langhammer, Anders Ostrem, Mike Thomas, Thys van der Molen, J Christian Virchow and Sian Williams BMC Pulmonary Medicine 2007, 7:8 (22 May 2007)
2. Also, can we remind you that we have previously made available The IPCRG Users Guide to currently available asthma control tools at http://www.theipcrg.org/resources/asthma_control_tools.doc
Embedded in this document is also a link to a summary table, suggested criteria you might use when deciding which to use, and web addresses for each tool [also available in the BMC document]
3. Powerpoint slides describing this material found at www.theipcrg.org/resources/asthmacontroltools2007.ppt
