The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) report was primarily intended as a strategy document and not a clinical guideline. However, the 2014 update moved the report towards a "practical, clinical practice‐centred document", and has in many countries formed a basis for national guidelines. A possible limitation of the GINA report is its primary focus on evidence coming from randomised controlled trials, potentially leading to the omission of clinically important data coming from real‐life and observational studies, and in conclusions based on highly‐selected asthmatic patients, fulfilling strict study inclusion criteria.
