Management of Paediatric Asthma in the Community – Case based exam

Case-based Exam

To assess competence in the management of Paediatric Asthma in the Community, candidates are required to complete a summative multiple choice exam. You will have 45 minutes to answer 25 questions . The pass mark is 80%. If you do not meet the assessment criteria, don’t panic! You can resit as many times as you need.

During this exam, you will be assessed against the following learning outcomes: 

    • Assessing control of Paediatric Asthma; are these patients participating in normal day-to-day life?


    • Objectively assessing control of Paediatric Asthma; tests to do today


    • The good care bundle; using the Personalised Asthma Action Plan and Paediatric Asthma Management app to achieve good control

The questions are presented through case studies, and each case study might span a series of questions. See below an example of how this Case Study and Question will sit on a page.

After each question, there might be a development in the case study; the original body of text for the Case study will be greyed out, and the additional information will be presented underneath. See below for an example:

If you do not pass every question, you will be able to resit the exam.
