This session will present three different clinical screening algorithms for work-related asthma, with the goal of providing participants with the information needed to determine which algorithm is most appropriate for their practice. A short introduction will be followed by presentations by three specialists, each of whom has contributed to the development and testing of a different screening algorithm for work-related asthma. The specialists will describe the components of the algorithms, results from validation tests, where and by whom they should be used, and plans for further development and testing. The session will conclude with a comparison of critical features of the three instruments.
1. Understand the components and validity of algorithms for work-related asthma.
2. Understand where and by whom the algorithms for work-related asthma should be used.
3. Understand which algorithm is most appropriate for their own occupational health practice.
