Providers are encouraged to assess asthma symptom control at every opportunity, including during routine prescribing or dispensing. Directed questioning is important because patients' expectations of their symptoms and treatment can vary greatly, as can their thoughts on what is acceptable or bothersome. Be sure to ask about (1) frequency of asthma symptoms, (2) night waking, and (3) frequency of short-acting β-agonist use for symptom relief.
