Overview - Treatable Traits
Treatable Traits is a personalised medicine model of care that has been proposed for the management of airway diseases. Using a Treatable Traits approach, individual characteristics of patients are identified using multidimensional assessment. To be considered a trait it must be:
- Clinically important
- Identifiable and measurable
Traits are categorised with three domains, Pulmonary and Extra Pulmonary Traits and Behavioural/Risk Factors (McDonald et al. 2019, Agusti et al. 2016,2017,2021).
