Aim of task force

To provide guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of severe asthma using the latest research and expertise from across Europe.

Patient input

People with the condition were invited to review the guidelines and give feedback. The feedback was reported to the Task Force and used to develop a public version of the guidelines.


The public version of the guidelines is now available to download here in English, in Serbian and in Portuguese. Other language versions can be accessed by changing the language of the website at the top of the page.

A factsheet of difficult-to-treat and severe asthma is also available.

The full guidelines are published as a paper in the European Respiratory Journal and available on the ERS e-learning site.
