Sixty primary care physicians out of 113 working in the territory of Brescia were contacted by personalised mailing and invited to participate in a working group on GINA guidelines under the auspices of the local health authority
and the Italian Society for Paediatric Respiratory Diseases (SIMRI). We organised six joint meetings focused on asthma
diagnosis, therapy and communication, with educational material, to which primary care physicians were invited to bring cases they perceived as being difficult. The guidelines and educational material - together with a rapid access specialist service for confirmation and advice, if necessary, on patient management - were then offered to all primary care physicians throughout the local health authority.
